Rejection of entry

As a foreign national you can be rejected. Rejection means that you are denied entry to Norway or that you must leave the country.

Can you return to Norway?

A rejection is only a temporary prohibition. You can return to Norway at a later time.

For example: You are rejected on entry to Norway because you do not have a valid passport with you. If you return later with a valid passport, the fact that you were rejected the last time will not be an obstacle to you entering Norway. 

Grounds for rejection and right of appeal

  • Nationals of countries outside the EU/EEA area

  • EU/EEA nationals
