Processing time

All regular passports are produced in Norway.

The processing time for a Norwegian passport is generally up to 4 weeks. This includes processing time at the embassy, production time in Norway and shipment of passport from Norway to the embassy.

However, please be advised that the Embassy has been notified by police authorities in Norway that there is currently a shortage of raw materials for producing passport in Europe, which unfortunately has resulted in long delays in producing new Norwegian passports. The Embassy can thus unfortunately give no indication of current production time for passports. For more information, please see the Government’s press release: Hasteinnkaller produsenten av norske pass -

Please note that if the application was lodged together with an application for personal number, the processing time for passport will come in addition to the processing time for applications for personal number.
