The applicant is the person who wishes to visit or live in Norway.
When you turn up to your appointment with the police or embassy/consulate you must hand in this list and copies of the documents on this list. You must also present the original documents.
If any of your documents are in a different language than Norwegian or English, you must also hand in a translation of the documents into Norwegian or English.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you have handed in all documents on the list which are required for your application. If all relevant documents are not handed in, this may lead to you having to wait longer for an answer or your application being rejected.
Please note: Some embassies may request additional documents based on local conditions if you are applying from abroad.
The signature form is the attachment you received via email when you registered your application online. Please print it and bring it with you. If you are handing in your application at a Danish embassy, please bring a filled-out application form instead. (www.udi.no/forms)
This can be a house, apartment, a room in a shared flat or similar. If you are renting, you must hand in a written rental contract which is approved by the house owner, manager or housing co-operative.
It is recomended (but not required) that the apartment number (dwelling number) is stated on the contract. This number consists of an H and four digits, for example H0101. When you are filling in the application form, we will ask you for this number.
If you have previously handed in this documentation to the UDI, you do not have to hand it in again.
