Do you want to help?
Information for those who want to help refugees from Ukraine.
Should you wish to help Ukrainians, contact an aid organisation to learn how your effort can be best put to use.
The police receive many questions from people who, for various reasons, want to collect people fleeing Ukraine and help them enter Norway. The police can provide no form of advance clearance, neither verbally nor in writing.
Legal entry to Norway
All foreigners travelling to Norway must enter Norway legally. This also applies to Ukrainians. There are several ways to travel legally into the country. Examples of this could be persons who:
- already have obtained a valid residence permit in Norway, or
- already have a valid visitor's visa to Norway, or
- can travel visa-free to Norway (applies if they have a biometric passport), or
- want to apply for protection (asylum) in Norway
