Information about individual cases


Due to privacy considerations, the UDI can in principle not disclose information about individual cases. However, we can disclose information if an applicant chooses to grant journalists right of access to his/her own case.

Immigration cases largely concern personal matters that are subject to a duty of secrecy. Due to privacy considerations, the UDI can in principle not disclose information about individual cases or comment on individual cases.

However, an applicant can choose to grant a journalist right of access to his/her own case. By giving such consent, the applicant gives the journalist the same right of access to the case documents as the applicant him/herself.

In order to be given right of access, the journalist must contact the applicant or the applicant's representatives. The applicant him/herself must sign the consent form; consent from the reference person or spokesperson in Norway is not sufficient.

As stated in the consent form, the applicant gives his/her consent to his/her personal information being made public. The journalist is obliged to ensure that the applicant is aware of this.

Please send the Norwegian or English consent form by email to presse@udi.no. A copy of a valid proof of identity must also be enclosed.
