Handing in the documents

You must bring all the documents listed in the checklist with you. You will find a link to the checklist in the email that is sent when you have registered your application in Application Portal. We will contact you if we need more information. Your application will then be sent on to UDI for processing.

You can hand in your documents here: 

VFS Joint Visa Application Centre
3rd Floor, Office No. 333
Morning Star Mall
Bole Medihanialem, Bole
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

All applications have to be registered and paid online on the Application Portal Norway, https://selfservice.udi.no, before meeting at the Visa Application Center. 

VFS will perform the task of accepting applications and supporting documents for visas and residence permits, and perform the biometrics on behalf of the Embassy. VFS will also answer general queries about visas, residence permits and application procedures. More information can be found on their web site: http://www.vfsglobal.com/norway/ethiopia/

The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) will still process the residence permits. VFS will not have any influence whatsoever on the decision or outcome of applications.
