Spørmål og svar
UNE has not suspended the duty to return to Russia. This means that if you have had your application for a residence permit rejected and do not have a case pending in UDI or UNE, you are obliged to return to Russia.
If you are in Norway and do not have a case pending in UDI or UNE, you can request that UNE reconsiders your case (request for reversal). If you request such a reversal, and are granted a deferred implementation, you are allowed to stay in Norway until your case has been reassessed.
- Here you will find information on how to submit a request for reversal
- On UDI's website you will find answers to frequently asked questions about residence permits, visitor visas and protection in Norway for Russian citizens (external link)
UNE is closely monitoring the situation in Russia, and makes concrete, individual assessments of the question of return in each case.
As long as you live in Norway, you are obliged to notify the police of the address at which you live. If we do not know where you are, your application can be rejected without the case being considered.
