Entry to Norway

Expulsion and rejection are powers the authorities can use to deny foreigners to enter or stay in Norway. Rejection is a decision to refuse someone to enter Norway at the border or to order them to leave the country.

Most rejection decisions are made by the police, but the Directorate of Immigration can also make such decisions. Rejected persons can enter Norway once the grounds for the rejection no longer apply.

I want to appeal the decision to reject me at the border. What do I do?

Submit an appeal in writing to the police within three weeks of your rejection. The police will reconsider your case and decide whether to overturn the decision or forward the matter to the Directorate of Immigration. The Directorate's decision is final.

All travellers into or out of Norway must be prepared to produce a valid identity document. For Norwegian nationals the only valid identity and travel documents outside the Nordic coutries are passports or national ID cards with the right to travel. The national ID cards are only valid in the EU/EEA countries and Switzerland.

This applies both in airports, ports and at land border crossing points.

The police recommend that you bring your passport or national ID card with the right to travel when travelling in the Nordic countries as well, to ease the border control.
