Right to deletion of personal data in SIS

If you believe that UDI is processing information about you in SIS that is incorrect or incomplete, you can request that it be deleted.

When can I request deletion?

If you discover that UDI has registered incorrect or incomplete information about you in SIS, you have the right to have the information deleted. You also have the right to have information about you deleted if it is no longer necessary for the UDI to fulfil its obligations in the Schengen cooperation.

There are several reasons why it is necessary to process your data. It could be, for example, that you have an obligation to leave the EU / Schengen area and you have not left the country yet. Another example is if you have been deported and banned from entering Norway and the EU / Schengen area which still applies.

To request deletion, please complete and submit this form:

Requesting deletion is free of charge.

How long does it take to get a response?

UDI must carry out deletion as soon as possible. You will normally receive a reply within a month. If it takes longer, UDI must notify you and provide justification.

If UDI has disclosed information to others

In certain situations, we share the information stored in SIS with others, for example the police, for border control purposes. If you have the right to deletion and UDI has previously disclosed information about you to someone else, UDI is normally obliged to notify the recipient or recipients about the deletion. You also have the right to know who has received the information.
