First of all thank you everyone here in this very helpful forum you guys have assisted me lot . and here Yesterday I have applied for a family immigration/resident permit in Norway while I was on tourist/visit visa, they asked me if I have higher education (which I have qualification as a skilled worker with 6 years+ experience as an IT Specialist). They accepted my application and I was given a DUF number with 12 digits. When I asked the officer who was handling our case if I can remain in Norway while waiting for the application process her answer was "I don't know, but I think you can stay".
So Anyone here if been through such, and have an experience, this would be so much of a help. My visa won't expire before 2019 as I have a 4 years tourist visa. But im worried about the 90 days in each 180 days rule, as I been coming to Norway so much, that I have only 8 days left in my 90 days rule, and im unsure if I can remain here now that I applied from Norway and have received the DUF number.
Again thank you all for your help always, your experience is very much appreciated. And sorry if this been asked before.
