Guide to waiting time for au pair permits


Information about how long you have to wait for an answer to your application for an au pair permit.

The information on this page is personalised for

What type of application have you submitted?: First time application (do not already have an au pair permit)

Information for you who have applied for an au pair permit

If you have been granted an au pair permit, you cannot enter Norway now due to coronary restrictions, so the UDI does not process au pair applications now. We do not know how long this will last and recommend both applicants and host families to follow the information page about the corona situation. We update the information here when we process applications again.

Do you want to withdraw the application?
If you no longer wish to have your application processed, you can request that the case is withdrawn by sending a written confirmation to UDI. You can upload the confirmation on our website.
