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 and Iraq must apply for a visitor’s visa.

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

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.

INFORMATION 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.

Travel restrictions, testing and quarantine due to the Corona virus

Your visa does not exempt you from travel restrictions and other measures in place within the EU/EEA/Schengen area in response to the Corona virus. You must familiarize yourself with the rules that apply for your destination before entering the Schengen area.

Important information about the new sponsorship form  

A new sponsorship form was issued on Tuesday, 1 February 2022. It replaces UDI's guarantee form for visitors. There are several changes in the new sponsorship form.  

Previously, the sponsor's person had to present a passport and documentation of income/funds to the police. The guarantee also had to be stamped by the police. With this new sponsorship form, the sponsor's person does not need to go to the police.  

During the corona situation, the sponsor's person would also have to present a residence certificate from the National Population Register. A residence certificate is no longer necessary with this new sponsorship form.  

The person who will sponsor your stay will only need to fill out the sponsorship form. If your sponsor already has filled out the visit guarantee form, you can still use that form until 1 August 2022. Until then, the embassy, ​​the consulate, UDI, and the border police will approve the old guarantee form. After 1 August 2022, we will only accept the new sponsorship form.
