On this page, we use the words 'reference person' and 'applicant'
If you have been granted a residence permit for getting married (fiancé(e)), and you now have married, you must now apply for a renewal of your family immigration permit with your spouse.
For applicants from your country, it may be difficult to be granted an application for family immigration in order to get married. This is because the UDI decides whether it is likely that you will return to your home country if you do not get married as planned. It is more likely that your application for family immigration will be granted if you get married first.
Please note! It is not a requirement for getting married in Norway that you have exactly this type of residence permit. You can get married in Norway as long as you have legal stay.
Please note! If the child is born in Norway, please check what type of residence permit you should apply for. There might be several options.
It is very difficult for other types of family members to be granted family immigration. You can only be granted family immigration if the UDI believes that strong humanitarian considerations apply in your case. We make a concrete assessment of this in every individual case, so we cannot say anything in general about what is required for other family members to be granted family immigration.
