Longing for a Norwegian summer? Here are some tips for our visa applicants!

The Norwegian summer is soon here, and so is the tourist season. As we are in the middle of the high season for visa applications, here are some steps to make the case process time smoother and faster for you!

1. Apply well in advance! A good advice is to apply up to 3 months prior to your planned departure. The application process may take up to 21 working days in the high season.

2. Travelling as a group? If you are two or more persons travelling together, you can register your applications as a group application in the Application Portal Norway. That will save both you, VFS and the decision maker time! Read more about group applications here.

3. Choose the correct amount of entries to the Schengen countries: Usually, a single entry to the Schengen area is sufficient and the correct choice when travelling to Norway or/and other Schengen countries. Read more on who is entitled for a multiple visa here.

4. Please submit all the required documents and answer all questions! All relevant information about documents and required information can be found on our webpage.

All queries regarding your visa application should be addressed to VFS. If required, VFS will forward the queries to the Embassy.

The Embassy wishes you a pleasant travel to Norway!
