New measures to ensure continued control of immigration

Press release 30/01/2024

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is continuing with full force. More than half of the Ukrainian refugees who arrive in the Nordic countries seek protection in Norway. Norway will continue to provide support for Ukrainians, but is imposing more restrictions to bring the level of arrivals closer to that of the Nordic countries.

Changes to the regulations for displaced Ukrainians

Press release 07/12/2023

Norwegian municipalities have done an outstanding job of settling and integrating displaced persons from Ukraine. Norway will continue this commitment, and take its share of the responsibility, but the level of arrivals must be sustainable over time. The Government is therefore implementing measures to handle the continuing situation with a high number of Ukrainian arrivals.
