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 India, Bhutan and Nepal must apply for a visitor’s visa to Norway and/or Schengen.

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.


Other categories:

  • For Nepal, Norway is handling visa applications on behalf of Iceland. If you are travelling to Iceland, you are to follow the same process as if you were to apply for a visa to Norway. If you are applying for a residence permit to Iceland, please contact the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration, as Norway does not handle residence permits on their behalf.
  • Indian Diplomatic passport holders who are travelling to Norway in an official capacity are exempted from visa.

Please note that the case processing time may take up to 21 working days in the high season. Read our tips for a smooth and fast application process here!
