Visitor’s visa and residence permit

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other Schengen countries for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days. A residence permit gives you the opportunity to work in Norway and to stay for more than 90 days.

Nationals of Cyprus do not need a visitor's visa. Likewise, they do not need a residence permit, but must register with the police within three months.

In Cyprus, the German Embassy in Nicosia handles visa applications on behalf of Norway. Please refer to the German Embassy’s website for further information.

Applications for residence permits are handled by the Norwegian embassy in Athens.
