SIS is a system where the authorities of the Schengen countries can exchange information about individuals who have a duty to leave and a deadline for leaving the Schengen area, or who are prohibited from entering the Schengen area.
The purpose is, among other things, to check that the duty to return is complied with and to ensure joint external border control.
SIS allows the Schengen countries to exchange information about persons who do not have the right to enter or stay in the Schengen area.
If your application for a residence permit has been rejected, you have received an obligation to leave with a deadline for leaving. This duty to leave will be registered in SIS. The authorities in all Schengen countries can see that you are registered in SIS with a duty to leave the Schengen area.
If you are expelled from Norway, you will be banned from entering, and you can be registered in SIS. In that case, you cannot travel to other Schengen countries either. If you have a prohibition against entry to Norway, UDI will also decide whether you will be prohibited from entering all Schengen countries.
Individuals who are registered in SIS cannot enter or stay in the Schengen area.
You can ask to see what is registered about you in SIS
If you are registered in SIS, you have the right to know what information is registered about you. You cannot get information about other people.
If you want to know what information is registered about you in SIS, you must send a written inquiry to UDI.
To request access to information about you in SIS, you must:
Duty to leave: If UDI rejected your application for a temporary residence permit, you have received a decision letter with a duty to leave and a deadline for leaving. You must leave Norway and/or the Schengen area within this deadline.
Deadline for leaving: The deadline you are given to leave Norway and/or the Schengen area. The deadline is stated in the decision letter.
Register departure: You are responsible for ensuring that your departure from Norway is registered. You, therefore, have to travel via an operated border control.
Expulsion:To receive a decision from UDI stating that you are expelled from Norway for one or more years. You will then be subject to a prohibition against entry and cannot return to Norway until the prohibition against entry has expired.
Rejection of entry: To be refused entry into Norway or to be notified by the Norwegian authorities that you have to leave Norway. A rejection is only a temporary prohibition. You can return to Norway later.
Deportation: To be escorted out of Norway by the police. If the police escort you out of Norway, you must pay the costs of your deportation before you may return to Norway. You cannot be granted a residence permit if you owe money for your deportation.
