    I have from previous POC from 24/01/2003 – 24/01/2010 and POC number 578586-613636-1 and want to know if I can renew my old POC. I have a Norwegian passport.

    If possible renewal, how much will it cost and how long will it take in mail delivery to Norway?

    My family is 5 people (2 adults and 3 children) but I will renew as I do

    My 3 children and my wife have Norwegian passports and what kind of overseas POC should they have and how much does it cost?

    Do you have family registration in a similar order of POC?

    I and my family are going to travel next month from 14-7-2017 and wish to receive feedback as soon as possible.

    Should I apply this online and from which webpage?
    Can you also send their email address?
