"Applied for citizenship" is the most common alternative.
"Submitted a notification of citizenship" is for Nordic citzens, former Norwegian citizens and children who had a Norwegian father when they were born only.
Can the waiting time for my application change?
Due to several emergency preparedness situations, the UDI has been given several new tasks that we must prioritize, and at the same time. Because of this, the waiting time has increased for several types of cases. Unfortunately, you will not get more information about the waiting time even if you contact us. We apologize for the long waiting time.
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 centre/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.
