Identity


When you apply for a residence permit in Norway, you must document your identity, i.e. your name, your age and what country you are from.
  • The best way of establishing your identity is to present a valid passport, travel document, birth certificate and/or other documents with a photo issued by public authorities in your home country.
  • If the UDI is in doubt about whether the information in your documents is correct, the Norwegian authorities may want to examine the documents extra carefully.
  • In some cases, the UDI will contact you and, for example, request DNA tests, age testing or interviews.
