Return decision

A return decision entails that you are obligated to leave Norway and/or the EU / Schengen area by a specified date (deadline for departure)

A return decision will be imposed on you if you are located in Norway or the EU / Schengen area and:

  • your application for a residence permit is rejected,
  • you receive a decision letter with a refusal of entry or stay (bortvisning) or 
  • you receive a decision letter with an expulsion order (utvisning)

The decision letter you have received from UDI states whether you must leave Norway or the entire EU / Schengen area.

Which decision have you received?

  • I must leave the entire EU / Schengen area
