If you have a Norwegian immigrant's passport or travel document for refugees, you must also hand in a separate application to renew this.
You will then have the same rights as before relating to work, studies etc. while you are waiting for us to decide your application. You will retain these rights until you have received an answer to your application, even if your residence permit expires in the meantime.
Even if you have applied in time, you may have trouble travelling in and out of Norway while waiting for your new permit. This is because you don’t have a valid residence card. Without the residence card, you can be stopped in the border control in other countries. You may also have trouble getting into Norway again when you return.
It is not possible for you to get a new residence card until you have been granted a new residence permit. If you applied in time, we will send you a confirmation which shows that you have legal residence while you are waiting for an answer to your application.
There are no particular requirements for renewing a residence permit for protection.
There is no application fee.How to apply
