Guide to waiting time for application for work immigration
In order to tell you how long you have to wait for an answer to your application for a residence permit, we ask you to answer three questions.
If you already have a residence permit, but are going to change the type of work you do, please choose "First time application".
Can the waiting time for my application change?
The waiting time may change while your application is with the UDI. The indicated waiting time tells you the waiting time for the applications we process now. The waiting time you find on our website is calculated from when you have submitted the documents for the application to the police in Norway or at the application center/embassy abroad. Here you can read what can make the waiting time change and how you can stay up to date on our waiting times.
