Permanent right to reside

With a permanent right to reside, you can stay and work in Norway indefinitely if you are an EU/EEA national or a family member of an EU/EEA national. You also have extra protection against expulsion.

EU/EEA nationals and members of their families can apply for the permanent right to reside after five years in Norway.

If you are a family member of an EU/EEA national, but you are not an EU/EEA national yourself, you will be issued a residence card as proof that you have the permanent right to reside. Permanent residence cards are valid for ten years at a time and can be renewed.
