Want to renew Au pair

It is important that you apply for renewal in good time before your residence permit expires if you want to retain all your rights. You must also apply for renewal if you wish to change host family.

What you need to do

  1. Three months before your residence permit expires you should register your application on the Application Portal and book an appointment with the police. There may be several weeks waiting time.
  2. No later than one month before your residence permit expires you must go to the police at the time you have booked and hand in your documents. The application will not be submitted until you have done this. 

You will then have the same rights as before relating to work, studies etc. while you are waiting for us to decide your application. You will retain these rights until you have received an answer to your application, even if your residence permit expires in the meantime. 

Even if you have applied in time, you may have trouble travelling in and out of Norway while waiting for your new permit. This is because you don’t have a valid residence card. Without the residence card, you can be stopped in the border control in other countries. You may also have trouble getting into Norway again when you return.
