Section 106 a. Risk of absconding

The risk of absconding shall be assessed on an individual basis. To determine whether a risk of absconding exists, an overall assessment must be carried out in which weight may be given to, among other things, whether
  1. a.
    the foreign national has evaded implementation of an administrative decision requiring the foreign national to leave the realm; this includes not complying with a time limit for exit,
  2. b.
    the foreign national has explicitly refused to leave the realm,
  3. c.
    the foreign national has been expelled from the realm,
  4. d.
    the foreign national has been sentenced to a penalty or a special sanction in the realm,
  5. e.
    the foreign national has demonstrated a lack of cooperation in connection with doubt about his or her identity,
  6. f.
    the foreign national is avoiding or complicating preparations for removal,
  7. g.
    the foreign national has given false information to the Norwegian authorities in connection with an application for a permit,
  8. h.
    the foreign national has failed to notify a change of address; see section 19, second paragraph,
  9. i.
    the foreign national is responsible for serious disturbances of the peace at a residential centre for asylum seekers, etc.; see section 95, first and second paragraphs,
  10. j.
    the foreign national has been found to pose a threat to fundamental national interests,
  11. k.
    the foreign national’s application for protection has been refused examined on its merits under section 32, first paragraph, (a) or (d), or fifth paragraph, or
  12. l.
    the foreign national’s application for a residence permit has been rejected as manifestly unfounded; see section 90, sixth paragraph, (b).
In assessing the risk of absconding under the first paragraph, weight may also be given to general experience relating to absconding.
