The applicant is the person who wishes to become a Norwegian citizen.
If you are a citizen of two or more countries, and one of them is an EU/EEA country, please choose this country.
It may sometimes happen that someone is issued a Norwegian passport even though they are not a Norwegian citizen. If you have been issued a Norwegian passport and discover that you are not a Norwegian citizen, you must notify Norwegian authorities. You must also hand back the Norwegian passport to the police where you live. If you have had a Norwegian passport without having been Norwegian, you may apply for Norwegian citizenship without paying a fee.
Your application will be processed more quickly if you ask the police or the foreign service mission to mark your application "Statsborgerforskriften §8-4".
