Losing your Norwegian citizenship


In certain situations, you can lose your Norwegian citizenship. You can also apply to be released from your Norwegian citizenship.

You can lose your Norwegian citizenship in four ways

  • You (or your parents) were granted citizenship in another country before 2020

  • You have not had a sufficient residence period in Norway before you reach the age of 22

  • You apply to be released from your Norwegian citizenship

  • The UDI revokes your citizenship
