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.

Information to applicants in Myanmar: Applications for visitor’s visas and residence permits for Norway are handled by the Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. All applications are to be submitted through VFS Global in Yangon.

(Since January 1st 2021 Germany no longer represents Norway in these matters) 

VFS in Yangon is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – TEMPORARY CHANGES IN VISA PRACTICE

Following the strict entry restrictions into Myanmar due to the corona situation, there are no regular commercial flights to Myanmar now. Because it is so difficult to return, a visitor`s visa to Norway will only be granted in extraordinary cases.

For information on your possibilities for getting a visitor`s visa now, please visit The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) webpage: https://www.udi.no/en/want-to-apply/visit-and-holiday/visitors-visa-to-norway/?c=vnm and https://www.udiregelverk.no/en/documents/udi-guidelines/udi-2012-006/

VIKTIG MELDING – MIDLERTIDIGE ENDRINGER I VISUMPRAKSIS 

Som følge av strenge innreiserestriksjoner i Myanmar grunnet koronasituasjonen, går det ikke ordinære flyvninger til Myanmar nå. Fordi det er så vanskelig å reise tilbake vil det nå kun innvilges besøksvisum i spesielle tilfeller. 

Dersom du ønsker å lese mer om dine muligheter til å få visum nå , vennligst se https://www.udi.no/skal-soke/besok-og-visum/besoksvisum-til-norge/?c=vnm og https://www.udiregelverk.no/rettskilder/udi-retningslinjer/udi-2012-006/
