Family reunification – registration in UDI

When should you register your family in Norway?

Family registration is necessary for their longer legal stay. The standard rules say that you can stay in Norway for 90 days out of every 180 days. Exceeding this limit requires registration. So in practice, if you work and have already registered your stay in Norway, your family should also do so if they intend to stay here for more than 90 days.

Who can register in Norway?

For EU citizens, this is anyone who has nationality in an EU country. If one of the family members lives in Norway and is registered - the easiest form is registration through family reunification, which is what this service covers. On this basis, you can register:

  • Spouse or registered partner
  • A cohabiting person (usually defined as a person who has lived with a given person for more than 2 years)
  • Fiance/fiancée
  • Children and grandchildren regardless of age
  • Parents and grandparents
  • Other family members who need care

What do we need to perform the service?

We need documentation of the family member depending on their status. We need an ID document for each person and based on the telephone conversation, we will fill in the rest of the data. This will mainly be personal data.

To register, in addition to your ID card, you will need:

  • For the spouse – marriage certificate
  • For a person living together - proof of residence for at least 2 years, e.g. joint tenancy agreement or parents' declarations of shared residence
  • For people expecting a child together – a pregnancy certificate
  • For engaged couples – confirmation of the wedding date within the next 6 months
  • For children and grandchildren - birth certificate (for grandchildren, the birth certificate of the child and his/her grandson/granddaughter)
  • For parents and grandparents - birth certificate (for grandparents, birth certificate of the reference person and the parent on the grandfather's/grandmother's side)
  • For another family member requiring care - a certificate of such need and proof of family relations.

What does the service include?

The service includes:

  • Completing the documentation necessary for family reunification
  • Setting the date of the visit and the place of the visit in order to check the identity and submit documents
  • Instructions on what to bring to the visit and what to do

WARNING: The decision regarding family registration is the responsibility of the office in Norway. The service only covers mediation between you and the office.
