Several people received calls from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ telephone number. During the conversation, people were asked to transfer money to the callers to solve problems with residence permits.

“They claimed that there was something wrong with the person’s residence permit and asked them to transfer money to solve the problem,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns.

Everyone who receives such a call should report it to the police, notify the telephone operator, and should not transfer money.

“Norway never asks for money for this type of service. Questions about residence permits must be directed to the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI),” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated.

Efforts are being made to obtain a detailed overview of the scam. The police are working on the case.
