Before you can hand in your passport and other documentation at a VFS application centre or a Norwegian diplomatic or consular mission, you must register your application online and pay the fee. If this is the first time you are registering an application in the portal, you will need to create a user account first.
Once you have completed the application form online and paid the fee, you will receive confirmation by email with a copy of your application summary, a signature letter (cover letter) and payment receipt attached. You need to print the signature letter, sign it, and submit it together with the other required documentation.
Once you have registered, you will receive confirmation by email, with a cover letter attached. The cover letter will confirm that you have filled in the application form and paid the fee. You need to print this letter and submit it together with the other required documentation.
The application fee must be paid by credit card online when you register your application. Information regarding the current fee is available on the UDI website.
Please note that once supporting documents have been submitted and the application has been accepted as admissible by the Embassy, the application fee is non-refundable. This also applies if the application is later withdrawn or rejected.
In Australia, applications are received by the external service provider VFS Global. An additional service fee is payable to VFS Global when you hand in your documents.
