Norway has announced that it will allow more family members of Norwegian residents and citizens to enter the country from abroad. These family members could be third-world citizens banned by the EU currently.
Family members including grandparents of Norwegian citizens and residents will be exempted from the entry ban. Erna Solberg, the Norwegian Prime Minister, and Monica Maeland, the Minister of Justice and Public Security, have dedicated this is Norway’s early Christmas present for grandparents abroad. They are eagerly awaited in the country.
The new rule will be implemented from October 21, 2020. From then the following people will be able to enter on a Norway visit visa:
- Children and stepchildren to a resident in Norway, aged above 21 years
- EEA citizens and their family members residing in third countries
- Children of established boyfriend/girlfriend (a relationship existing for at least 9 months, and both persons involved have met physically)
- Parents and stepparents of children living in Norway and aged above 21
- Grandparents and grandparents of a Norwegian resident
- Grandchildren and great-grandchildren of a Norwegian resident
- Spouse, cohabitant, registered partner, and children of Norwegian citizens living abroad and traveling to Norway together with the Norwegian citizen
In spite of the exemption, the general rules in the Immigration Act governing the rules of entry such as travel documents will be applicable to them.
