How to apply for asylum

ATTENTION! You must be in Norway or on the Norwegian border to apply for asylum.

If you are afraid to return to your home country or the country where you lived previously because of violence, persecution, war or you are in danger of suffering serious harm in that country, you can apply for asylum in Norway.

Please note that UNHCR is not responsible for the processing of asylum applications and is not engaged in asylum procedures in Norway.
