Storskogporteføljen – behandling av asylsøknader fremsatt i 2015 fra personer med visum til Russland som var gyldig for én innreise (engangsvisum)

Latest changes
  • New: GI-07/2016 Storskogporteføljen – behandling av asylsøknader fremsatt i 2015 fra personer med visum til Russland som var gyldig for én innreise (engangsvisum) (4/29/2016)

    New instructions from the Ministry of Justice and Public Security. The instructions say that foreign nationals who sought protection (asylum) in Norway in 2015 after traveling into the country by Storskog border post, who have visas to Russia which was valid for one entry, but that expired in time, and who is at a known address in Norway now will be given the opportunity to have their asylum applications decided on its merits here. This means that the UDI will consider all applications mentioned above that have not yet been processed, or where the appeal is still at the UDI. For complaints forwarded to the Immigration Appeals Board (UNE), UNE returns the case to the UDI for admissibility. For issues that are finally determined, either by the UDI (if it is not appealed) or UNE, the foreign national must ask for reversal for having the case decided on its merits. The above does not apply if the foreign national has been granted protection in another country. The instructions come into force immediately.
