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 Norwegian Government has implemented extensive restrictions on entry into Norway due to the spread of COVID-19. As a result, foreigners who do not hold a valid residence permit in Norway will be rejected at the border and refused entry into Norway under provisions of a Norwegian law relating to the control of communicable diseases. For the time being and until further notice, visas for visitors to Norway will not be granted. For more information, please see this page.

In Myanmar, the German Embassy in Yangon handles visa applications on behalf of Norway. Please refer to the German Embassy’s website for further information.

To apply for a residence permit (study, work and family reunification) to Norway, applicants from Myanmar are required to submit their application at the Embassy of Norway in Bangkok. Please refer to their website for further information.
