Hundreds of Ukrainians may be asked to leave Norway. They said that the risk of mobilization is not a reason for obtaining asylum


In Norway, several hundred Ukrainian refugees may be asked to leave the country, among them 370 men of conscription age. She reported this on May 30 NRK.

People who left Ukraine because of the war can get temporary collective protection in Norway for a period of one year, which can be extended.

It is noted that the Norwegian Immigration Directorate (UDI) has begun individual consideration of the applications of Ukrainians who did not live in Ukraine at the time of the start of full-scale Russian aggression and therefore do not meet the requirements for collective protection in Norway.

The country’s authorities have warned that they will process applications individually for people coming from the so-called safe regions (Lviv, Volyn and Zakarpattia regions are considered to be such), as well as for people who did not live in Ukraine at the time of the outbreak of the large-scale war.

Among Ukrainians whose asylum cases are pending, 370 (47%) are men aged 18 to 60.

The Norwegian Ministry of Justice noted that “conscription for military service and service in connection with the war are not conditions that are grounds for granting asylum in Norway.” However, this should be assessed individually in each specific case, the department explained.

According to UDI, since February 2022, more than 77,000 Ukrainians have applied for collective protection in Norway.
