Information in other languages

Report to the police

Refugees from Ukraine who are brought to Norway or who come here on their own initiative must mainly register at the national arrival center in Råde in Østfold.

Those who have already come here to the district can register at Jæren police station in Bryne from and including Thursday 17 March at 08.00.

Those who are to be registered will be called in. Those who have not already reported to the police for registration must send an email to sou.sorvest@politen.no and they will be summoned for registration

Collective protection for Ukrainians in Norway

Ukrainian citizens who apply for protection in Norway will receive temporary collective protection for one year. Your protection permit may be extended.

Collective protection means that UDI does not assess the need for protection individually but gives Ukrainians fleeing the war in Ukraine and their family members collective protection. This ensures that Ukrainians fleeing the war will get the help they need faster.

Refugees in Stavanger

The municipality is watching the situation closely and is preparing for a request from the Norwegian authorities for possible settlement of Ukrainian refugees. The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) is responsible for receiving refugees who come to Norway. 

IMDi is asking the municipalities to settle refugees. Stavanger has reported to IMDi that the municipality has the capacity to settle up to 260 refugees in 2022. IMDi will return with a request to Stavanger municipality to receive refugees. 

The UDI reports that Ukrainians who have a place to live, with friends, family or other network, can stay there until further notice. You do not have to go to the National Arrival Center to register. From Thursday 17 March, registration can take place at the local police district. In the South-West police district, you can register at Jæren police station in Bryne. 

Ukrainians who do not have a place to live must contact the police, who will arrange transportation to the National Arrival Center, where you can register and get accommodation.
