Permanent right of residence in Norway
If you have a decision from the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) or the police proving that you have a permanent right of residence in Norway, you must submit this.
If you don’t have such a decision, you may submit confirmation that proves that you have had legal residence in Norway, and that you have lived here for a continuous period of at least five years, and that you/the EEA citizen during this period has been an employee, self-employed, a student or has lived here with sufficient funds.
We check the (Norwegian) National Registry to see if you are registered as a resident in Norway. Nordic citizens must also document that they are permanent residents of Norway under these rules.
