A large number of Ukrainians are currently living in Norway because of the war in their homeland.

Payment for Ukrainians going home: details
The website of the Norwegian Directorate for Foreigners (UDI) informs that the Norwegian government is allocating an additional cash payment of EUR 1,500 for Ukrainians who are going to return home.
This assistance is designed to enable Ukrainians who have previously received collective protection in Norway to return to their homeland and settle there.
"In order for the Norwegian Directorate for Foreigners to pay financial support for returning home, you need to send documents proving that you have filed a notice of moving home (leaving Norway). You do not need to do this at the same time as applying for financial support for return, but before you leave," the UDI website says.
You must choose one of the following types of documents:
● A copy of the notice of departure from Norway with a confirmation or stamp from the National Population Register (Folkeregisteret) or the tax office;
● сonfirmation from NAV, a municipality or a government agency that the notice to leave Norway has been submitted;
● a digital receipt from the Norwegian Tax Administration (Skatteetaten) stating that a notice to leave Norway has been submitted.
It is also noted that all documents must be marked with their own DUF number.
The application and the selected type of document should be sent to the following address: Utlendingsdirektoratet, Postboks 2098 Vika, 0125 Oslo.
Please note! In order to receive the payment, all documents must be submitted 16 weeks before you leave for your home country.
How do I get the money?
To receive the payment, you must:
● Fill out an application in English in pdf format for financial assistance for voluntary return to Ukraine;
● аttach the following data: a description of how the person will get home (transport, route and destination) on a separate sheet; copies of tickets to the final destination; or a self-declaration form if the person will be travelling home in their own car.
We remind you! Refugees continue to arrive in Norway in large numbers. Find out where the Norwegian authorities are planning to accommodate Ukrainians here.
