and your spouse or cohabitant does not have enough income, you may provide a financial guarantee in their case.
In order to provide a financial guarantee, you must have a total income of at least NOK 260 744 per year pre-tax before taxes. It must be probable that you are going to have this income for at least another year. You may later be asked to document that you had this income the first year your family member was in Norway.
If you are going to provide a financial guarantee, you cannot add together your own income and the income of your spouse or cohabitant in order to fulfil the income requirement– you must fulfil the requirement on your own.
You who provide a financial guarantee may have one or more of these types of income, as long as they add up to at least NOK 260 744 per year pre-tax before taxes. You may for example have a disability benefit of NOK 200 000 per year and an income from employment of NOK 100 000 per year.
It is not possible for you to provide a financial guarantee in a case where someone is going to move to their spouse, cohabitant or fiancé in Norway. In these cases, the spouse, cohabitant or fiancé who lives in Norway must fulfil the income requirement him- or herself.
