The visa section of the Embassy is now accepting new applications for residence permits and visas. VFS will start accepting applications from Monday July 12th, but applicants can book appointments now. Students accepted at Norwegian universities can also book appointments, and they will be issued visas when their permits are granted and they are allowed to travel to Norway.
The entry restrictions to Norway are still in place. In addition, there are strict entry restrictions into India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, there are no commercial flights and it is difficult to return. Because of this, visitor’s visas to Norway will only be granted in extraordinary cases.
