You will be notified when your application has been processed.
You can pick up your passport and decision letter at the VFS Global visa application centre where the application was submitted. Alternatively, you may organise and pay for a courier to collect the passport at the embassy in Canberra. If you opted to provide a self-addressed pre-paid envelope with your application, VFS Global will send the passport to you directly.
If you have been granted a residence permit, a visa sticker will be placed in your passport to allow you to travel to Norway, if required. VFS Global will contact you to let you know when you can collect your passport. With the decision letter, you will receive a cover letter to let you know when you can travel to Norway.
If your application has been rejected, you will receive a written explanation as to why it was rejected. You can appeal the decision.
