How to apply for protection in Norway

Ukrainian citizens who apply for protection in Norway receive temporary collective protection for one year. It is important that those who come to Norway, or who are already here, register themselves upon arrival. Registration is at Sør-øst politidistrikt politi.no (police). If you already have registered at the refugee centre in Råde you will not need to register again.


Collective protection means that the UDI should not assess the need for protection individually, but give Ukrainians fleeing the war in Ukraine and their family members protection as a group. This ensures that Ukrainians get the help they need faster. You can read more about this here (download):

The UDI has begun to process applications for collective protection. Unfortunately, the processing time is unknown, however they are focused on sending a quick response to all applicants.

Asylum seekers and refugees in Norway have the right to healthcare for physical ailments and illness, mental issues, addiction problems, and dental care.
