Entry visa for applying for or waiting for a decision on family immigration (D-visa).
Persons who require a visa to visit Norway can in some cases be issued an entry visa, so that they can travel to Norway before they apply or while they are waiting for an answer.
More information about how to apply can be found on the website of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI)
Please note that all the requirements in the UDI circular 2013-001 must be met. The Embassy cannot grant a D-visa if there is any doubt that your family immigration application will be granted.
The case processing time in D-visa cases is currently around 4 months.
