Visitor's visa and residence permit
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING APPLYING FOR VISAS.
Please be advised that while the Danish Embassy normally process visas to all the Scandinavian countries, due to the current situation with COVID-19, we have been informed that the agreement with Denmark regarding issuing short-term visas to Scandinavia, has been put on hold for the time being.
This will have no practical implications, as travellers not residing in Norway will not be allowed access to the country at this point in time. Foreigners who do not hold a valid residence permit in Norway will be rejected at the border and refused entry into Norway under provisions of a Norwegian law relating to the control of communicable diseases. For the time being and until further notice, visas for visitors to Norway will not be granted.
