Guide to waiting time for applications for Norwegian citizenship
In order to tell you how long you have to wait for an answer to your application, we ask you to answer two questions.
Waiting time for applications for citizenship
When the police send your application to the UDI you will be notified by email or SMS.
Today it normally takes 15 months from you handed in your documents to the police, until you get an answer to your application.
How long you have to wait may change. We update the information on this page once a month.
If the UDI has to make additional investigations, it may take longer until you get an answer.
