Protection (asylum) means being granted a resident permit as a refugee in Norway. 

A person has a right to protection (asylum) if one or both of these situations apply:

  • has a well-founded fear of persecution because of his/her ethnicity, origin, skin colour, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political views
  • faces a real risk of being subjected to the death penalty, torture or other inhuman or degrading treatment or punshment by returning to his or her home country.
