Visitor's visa

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days.

Citizens of Ethiopia must apply for a visitor's visa.

If you plan to visit more than one Schengen country in the course of one trip, or if you plan several separate trips within a period of two months, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your main destination based on the length of your stay, or the purpose of stay.

If you plan to visit several Schengen countries and the main destination cannot be determined, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your first point of entry to the Schengen area.

The Swedish Embassy in Addis Ababa processes all applications for Schengen visa to Norway.

Please note: As a temporary arrangement, since the representation agreement with Sweden has been suspended, applicants in Ethiopia who wish to apply for a Schengen visa to Norway, may from the 21st September 2020 submit their applications at the VFS Global Visa Application Center in Addis Ababa.

For information on how to apply for a Schengen visa, please visit the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi's website.
