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.
Citizens of Djibouti must apply for a visitor's visa if they wish to visit Norway for 90 days or less. Likewise, citizens of Djibouti need a residence permit in order to work or to take up residence for longer than 90 days.
Applications for Schengen visas and residence permits are handled by the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi. Kindly note that the Norwegian Honorary Consulate in Djibouti does not receive applications for visas or residence permits.
All applications must be submitted at one of the VFS Global application centres in either, Nairobi, Addis Ababa, Kampala or Dar es Salaam, which works in partnership with the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi.
For information on how to apply for a Schengen visa or residence permit, please visit the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi's website.
