If you are uncertain about whether or not the permits you have held form the basis for permanent residence, you can check this in the decisions you have received from the UDI.
You may have had several different types of permits during the residence period that apply to you, but all the permits must form the basis for permanent residence.
Examples of residence permits that normally form a basis for a permanent residence permit
- residence permits for skilled workers or self-employed persons
- most types of family immigration permits
- protection (asylum)
- residence on grounds of strong humanitarian considerations (unless you have been granted a limited permit)
Examples of residence permits that normally not form a basis for a permanent residence permit
- residence permit for student
- residence permit as au pair
- residence permit to get married (fiancé permit)
- residence on grounds of strong humanitarian considerations with limitations
