Want to apply Citizenship for EU/EEA nationals who have held a residence permit in Norway

The requirements for Norwegian citizenship are not the same for everyone. How old you are, when you came to Norway and who you are married to, can affect how long you must have lived in Norway before you can apply.

The applicant is the person who wishes to visit or live in Norway. 

When you apply, UDI will consider which group you belong to, and whether you meet the requirements. Here you can check for yourself what the requirements are for the most common groups of applicants. Remember that you may belong to more than one group. 

What group do you belong to?

  • Over the age of 18

  • Spouse, registered partner or cohabitant of a Norwegian citizen

  • Children between the age of two and 18 with one Norwegian parent or apply together with one parent

  • Children over the age of 12 who apply on their own
