Renew your grant of asylum (protection)
Phone the police for an appointment to renew your asylum status. To keep all your rights, you should book an appointment at least two months before your residence permit expires. You can apply for renewal if you have already been given a residence permit because you need protection.
For skilled workers or EU/EEA citizens
Are you a skilled worker or an EU/EEA citizen? In Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger, you must go in person to the local Service Centre for Foreign Workers (SUA). This office will handle your application for residence.
If you wish to apply for residence and are not a skilled worker or EU/EEA citizen, you must submit your application in person at a police station.
Always book an appointment before you submit your application
To register as an EU/EEA citizen or apply for a residence permit, book an appointment through the applications portal on the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) website.
The portal will tell you where you can submit your application to the police.
