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.
The Embassy in Amman has become the Visa and Immigration Hub for the Middle East and North Africa. This means that we handle visa and residence applications from 11 countries: Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia (only residence cases), Chad, Israel and Palestinian territories.
We also represent these countries: In Jordan: (Denmark, Finland and Iceland), in Lebanon: (Iceland), in Algeria: (Denmark and Iceland).
Applicants shall submit their applications in their country of origin or residence, as before. However, the establishment of the Hub gives the applicants from any of the above-mentioned countries the choice to submit their applications in Amman, or any of the above-mentioned countries. This flexibility only applies to those travelling to Norway, not to the represented countries (Denmark, Finland, and Iceland).
We strongly recommend that applications are submitted, as early as possible, ahead of planned departure date. Applicants applying from Tel Aviv and the Palestinian territories (from the application offices in Gaza and Ramallah) are kindly requested to apply, at least 25 days ahead of the planned departure date.
