The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration says it is important that private buses that arrive in Norway with Ukrainian refugees get in touch when they arrive.

So far, at least 6,000 Ukrainian refugees have come to Norway during the conflict, according to the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration’s (UDI) figures. Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports that 4,300 refugees have been processed through the arrival reception framework, while 1,600 refugees are still waiting.

Part of the waiting time may be due to the fact that it has at times been chaotic at the national arrival reception at Råde because the authorities do not know when private buses with refugees show up.

Important to give notice in advance

“The private buses often arrive unannounced, even at night, so it is difficult to plan for,” section leader for arrival and transit at the UDI, Vivian Gotaas, told NRK.

Therefore, it is important that those who arrive with Ukrainian refugees give notice in advance, Gotaas noted.

She says the work at the reception center has been demanding in recent weeks due to the high numbers of arrivals.
