If you are married to, cohabitant with or the child below the age of 18 of a person who has been granted protection in Norway, you can be allowed to live in Norway without any requirements as to this person’s income.
If you are the spouse of the person living in Norway, you have to have been married before this person came to Norway for you to be exempt of the income requirement.
You need to be aware of two deadlines to be exempted from the income requirement. The deadlines are for when you have to register and when you have to hand in the application.
If you do not apply within these deadlines, your family member must have a good and steady income if your application is to be granted.
If the reference person was granted protection in Norway before 1 August 2017, only the requirement of handing in the application within 12 months applies.
