Visitor’s visa and residence permit

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other Schengen countries for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days. A residence permit gives you the opportunity to work in Norway and to stay for more than 90 days.

Information to applicants residing in Israel: Applications for visitor’s visa and residence permit for Norway are handled by the Norwegian Embassy in Amman. All applications are to be submitted through VFS Global in Tel Aviv.

Due to technical issues, the processing time for visa and residence applications to Norway or countries we represent (Denmark, Finland, and Iceland) is prolonged. Our technical staff are working on it and we will update the public through our website. The technical challenge we are facing is connected to the process following the establishment of the Visa and Immigration Hub in Amman.

Therefore, we strongly recommend that applications are submitted, as early as possible, ahead of planned departure date. Applicants applying from Tel Aviv are kindly requested to apply, at least 25 days ahead of the planned departure date.


We apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
