Immigration matters

A visa grants the holder the right to enter Norway/the Schengen area and stay up to 90 days. It is issued in accordance with provided tickets and insurance, and both the amount of days you may stay and the visas validity period are specified on the visa sticker. A visa may be valid for one, two or multiple entries during the validity period. A visa does not allow you to work.
A residence permit grants the holder the right to stay in Norway for longer than 90 days. It will also grant you the right to work or study depending on the type of residence permit you have been granted.


Please note that the Norwegian Embassy in Canberra does not handle immigration matters. For questions and information about entry to or stay in Norway, please contact the Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok on
