As it can be read recently in the news, iranian students and workers in Norway are having issues with their visas due to a new agreement of the government in order to protect policies of spying and spreading information about weapons. Iranians affected by this have started a group called SEDAI: https://www.facebook.com/SEDAI.Event?fref=ts. They plan to sue the government since the reason for rejection are not specific enough, so they are trying to build themselves up as an association to be able to open a bank account and take the case to the court.
DION and SiN (The Association of Doctoral Organizations in Norway) have issued a statement to show our support for the Iranian PhD candidates at NTNU who have got their visa applications rejected.
