A return decision will be imposed on you if you are located in Norway or the EU / Schengen area and:
- your application for a residence permit is rejected,
- you receive a decision letter with a refusal of entry or stay (bortvisning) or
- you receive a decision letter with an expulsion order (utvisning)
The decision letter you have received from UDI states whether you must leave Norway or the entire EU / Schengen area.
Which decision have you received?
I must leave the entire EU / Schengen area
You return decision will be registered as an alert in the Schengen Information System (SIS). It will remain in SIS until your departure from the EU / Schengen area has been registered. The authorities in all Schengen countries can see in SIS that a return decision has been issued for you.
If you do not leave Norway and/or the Schengen area before your deadline for departure, you may be deported and prohibited from entering Norway and/or the EU / Schengen area.
