Want to apply Citizenship for people who hold 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.
Informasjon

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. 

When you apply, the UDI will consider which group you belong to, and whether you fill the requirements.  Here you can check for yourself what the requirements are for the most common group 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 under the age of 18 who have one Norwegian parent or apply together with one parent

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