Before you apply

If you plan to visit Norway for less than 90 days, you can apply for a visitor's visa. With this visa you can visit all Schengen countries. Because of the situation in Iran, it can be difficult for applicants from Iran to get a visa. You can read more about the current visa practice here.

Some persons who have a residence permit in an EU/EEA country or a special passport, do not need to apply for a visitor's visa.

In order to apply for a visa from Iran you must either be a citizen of Iran or Afghanistan, or legally reside in Iran.

It is the person who wants to come to Norway who has to apply. If you want someone to act on your behalf in connection with your application, you must authorise this person to do so. Please visit the UDI website for more information and the relevant form.

If you have any questions about visitor's visas, you can contact VFS Global's Visa Application Centre (Helpline: + 98 218 280 5915)
