Visitor's visa

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days.

Citizens of Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Chad, and the Palestinian territories must apply for a visitor’s visa. Under point 2 below, "Gather the necessary documentation", you will find the relevant check-list based on your citizenship.

If you plan to visit more than one Schengen country in the course of one trip, or if you plan several separate trips within a period of two months, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your main destination based on the length of your stay, or the purpose of stay.

If you plan to visit several Schengen countries and the main destination cannot be determined, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your first point of entry to the Schengen area.

Important notice for groups

Please do not register your visa applications as a "group". There are technical issues in handling group applications - please register your application individually.

Represented countries in Jordan

Norway is handling visa applications on behalf of Denmark (including Greenland and the Faroe Islands), Finland and Iceland in Jordan. If you are applying for a visa to travel to one of these countries, you are to follow the same process as if you were to apply for a visa to Norway.

Inforamtion to visa holders

If you have been issued a visa for the territories of the Schengen States or an entry visa to Norway, Denmark, Iceland or Finland, please make sure that all the information it contains is correct. Please also observe the following:

  1. A Schengen visa does not automatically entitle you to cross the Schengen external border. The final control of the entry conditions is done when you cross the Schengen border
  2. An entry visa entitles you to enter Norway, Denmark or Iceland (please check country code in your visa), and is valid for transit in other Schengen states.

How to submit an appeal

You may either send your appeal to the Norwegian Embassy in Amman by post or courier to the following address:

Royal Norwegian Embassy, Damascus street 25. Abdoun 11183 – Amman, Jordan

Or upload the appeal via the online Application Portal. If you choose to upload your appeal letter; please log into your Application Portal account with the same username and password as when you filed your application. You will find the correct link and more information:

Remember to enter the Application Portal reference number of your case. You will find the Application Portal reference number in the cover letter you receive when submitting your application in the Application Portal.

The Embassy will review your appeal – it will either overturn its decision or forward the appeal to the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) for consideration. If your appeal is sent to UDI, they will review your appeal again and either reject your appeal or overturn the Embassy’s decision. If the UDI also rejects your appeal, there are no further possibilities of appeal.
