- A spouse or a partner who is a Norwegian citizen who they they have had a “permanent and established cohabitation relationship” with for at least two years, or if they are expecting a child with them, or someone to whom they are engaged to be married, so long as you are getting married once you arrive in Norway.
- Parents, grandparents, children of any age, grandchildren/great-grandchildren of any age, full siblings, if you are under 18 years old. ¨
They cannot visit a Norwegian boyfriend/girlfriend.
The directorate says that “the relationship between you and your family member must be documented”.
That might mean marriage certificates, birth certificates, a lease contract to document cohabitation, or a pregnancy certificate with both parents' names.
Those planning to marry can present documents showing the planned time for marriage, a certificate of no impediment, or receipts from the booking of premises for a wedding party.
The Q&A section for citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA says that they can visit family from June 15th if they have a residence permit for family immigration with a Norwegian citizen or foreign citizen residing in Norway.
Foreigners living in Norway complained that it was unclear whether EU/EEA citizens currently outside Norway could visit family in Norway who were also citizens of the EU/EEA, or whether the relaxation only applied to those visiting Norwegian citizens.
Others complained that the requirement that spouses of Norwegian citizens who live outside the EU/EEA need to obtain a residence permit meant they were in practice still barred from entry as visa application centres were closed in their country.
