How long is my residence permit valid?

  • Your decision letter from UDI states how long your permit is valid.
  • If you wish to continue living in Norway, you must remember to renew the permit 2–3 months before it expires.
  • If you do not renew your permit, you may experience problems travelling into and out of Norway, lose the right to work in Norway or have problems when you apply for a permanent residence permit or citizenship.
