The result of your application

You will be notified when your application has been processed.

If you have been granted a visa, a visa sticker will be placed in your passport to allow you to travel to Norway. VFS Global will contact you to let you know when you can collect your passport. 

If your application has been rejected, you will receive a written explanation as to why it was rejected. You can appeal the decision. See information below.

You can pick up your passport at the VFS Global visa application centre where the application was submitted. If you opted to provide a self-addressed pre-paid envelope with your application, VFS Global will send the passport to you directly.

Please check the following information on the visa sticker:
- That name and surname is correctly spelled 
- The visa's period of validity
- Permitted number of entries
- Permitted duration of stay
- Passport number

If there is an error on the visa sticker, please contact the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok

If an application was rejected by the Directorate of Immigration (UDI), the appeal must be sent to the UDI by uploading the documents on their website.
