Information for Accompanying Family Members (Dependents)
Use UDI’s online application portal to apply.
NB: You should not apply for a visa; American citizens must apply residence via a “family immigration” permit.
A separate form must be completed for each accompanying family member. In the online system select “family immigration” as the reason for your application.
We strongly recommend that the family member(s) submit their applications at the same time that the principal person (student/researcher) submits his/hers. Failure to do so will result in a longer processing time.
Norwegian regulations generally require that both spouses/partners be 24 years of age or older in order to apply for a family reunification permit. However there are exceptions. For more information please see this page on the UDI website.
Please see the information on family immigration requirements for students or for scholars (“researchers with own funds”) on the Ministry of Immigration (UDI) website.
