Gather the necessary documentation
When applying for a Norwegian passport, it is your responsibility to provide evidence that you are eligible to be issued a Norwegian passport.
All relevant documentation must be provided in original at the time of appointment. Previously submitted documents will not be considered.
The application form is completed at the time of appointment. In addition, the following documentation must be provided:
Biometric data, including photo
The following biometric data will be captured by the embassy during the appointment:
- For applicants under the age of 10: photo
- For applicants aged 10-12: photo and signature
- For applicants 12 years or older: photo, fingerprints and signature
The embassy will make all endeavours to carry out the required biometric capture during your appointment. However, unforeseen problems may arise either during the appointment or during the subsequent processing. If the embassy is unable to capture the required biometric data, including photo of children, you may have to come back to the embassy for a new appointment. The embassy cannot be held responsible for any inconvenience, financial or otherwise, this may cause.
