UNE prepares your case
When we receive your case, we send a confirmation to you or your lawyer to let you know that your case has been received by the Immigration Appeals Board (UNE).
You must comply with any instructions given in the decision from the Directorate of Immigration (UDI)
If you were given a deadline for leaving Norway in the decision from the UDI, you must leave the country even if your case has been forwarded to UNE. You must apply for deferred implementation of the decision if you wish to stay in Norway while your appeal is being processed. Special rules apply if you have applied for renewal of your residence permit or if your residence permit has been revoked. You are then entitled to stay in Norway while your appeal is being processed. If you applied for renewal of your residence permit, this right only applies if you applied at least one month before your last permit expired.
You must send us any new information that may be important to your case
If you have new information about your case, you must send it to us. Here, you can find information about how to send us additional information. This checklist shows what it is important to do when your case is being considered by UNE.
We will contact you if we need more information
UNE considers each case individually. This means that we look at your case specifically and consider it in relation to the regulations. We review all the documents and see whether we have all the information we need to make a decision in the case. If we need more information, UNE has a duty to obtain this information. This may, for example, be information about:
- your identity
- the country you come from
- your health
- your children’s situation
- other personal matters
You will be given an opportunity to comment on new information
If new information is obtained that may be important to your case, you will be given an opportunity to comment on the information before the case is decided. In such case, we will send the new information to you or your lawyer, so that you can send comments back.
Most UNE cases are decided without us talking to the people concerned.
