Sylvi Listhaug of the Progress Party (FRP) also wants to make it more difficult for children of ISIS members to obtain Norwegian citizenship. Listhaug is the head of FRP’s immigrant committee.

The immigration committee will present its work on Sunday, the day after the FRP’s national meeting. 

According to newspaper VG, up to ten years of residence and very strict language requirements are among the committee’s proposals.

“It is not a requirement that one must adapt to Norwegian society to become a Norwegian citizen (today). That must be tightened sharply,” Listhaug said.

C1 level Norwegian, eight years of temporary residence, value test…

Among the proposals, there is also a request that children born abroad by a Norwegian mother or father must have a permanent connection and contact with the biological parent who holds Norwegian citizenship.

Other requirements include eight years of temporary residence before you can get permanent residence, requirements for impeccable conduct, language proficiency at a minimum C1 level, passing a test of Norwegian and basic universal values, an oath of allegiance, and demands for self-sufficiency in the last five years (and not having received social assistance).

  1. Vi trenger innvandrere for å få dette landet til å gå rundt, for vi er for lite folk i dette landet.
    Og vi kan ikke sette Høyere krav til Innvandrere enn vi setter til Etnisk Norske. Dette er bare tull, men hvorfor ikke ta inn flere fra Asia som virkelig vil jobbe og bidra til alles beste, Og ikke ta inn kun folk med krigs traumer som ender opp på uføretrygd, uten å outta 1 øre inn til den kassa som vil brødfø deg resten av livet, så skal dem som var med å bygde landet gå på minste pensjon… Det er ikke rettferdig, og hvor mye korrupsjon er det på Stortinget??? Jeg vil si veldig mye
