You will be notified by email or SMS when your application has been processed.

Depending on the agreement you made with VFS Global when you submitted the application, the result can be picked up at the Visa Application Centre or can be delivered by courier service.

 If you have been granted a residence permit, a sticker will be placed in your passport to allow you to travel to Norway. The embassy/consulate will contact you to let you know when you can collect your passport.

If you are a foreign national exempted from the visa requirements, the embassy will 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.
