Children born in Norway
Because one or both parents are citizen of an EU/EEA country, you do not need to apply for a residence permit, but you must register the child with the police or apply for a residency card for the child. This applies also if the child is born in Norway and has a Norwegian personal number.
- If the child is a citizen of an EU/EEA country, you can use the registration scheme for EU/EEA nationals. Please note that the child must have their own passport before you can attend the appointment with the police.
- If the child is a citizen of a country outside the EU/EEA, you can apply for a residence card for family members of EU/EEA nationals for the child. Please note that the child must have their own passport before you can attend the appointment with the police.
There is no deadline for registering your child/applying for a residency card for children under the EU/EEU regulations. UDI reccomends that you register your child as soon as they have a passport.
Requirements for the applicant (child)
- You must document the identity of your child. If they have a valid passport, that is usually valid proof of identity.
The applicant (your child) must meet at the police station/ foreign mission. It is sufficent that one of the parents follow the child, if the other parent sign the application and the passports of both parents are attached.
