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.

Citizens of Nepal must apply for a visitor's visa. Likewise, citizens of Nepal need a residence permit in order to work or take up residence for longer than 90 days.

New Delhi takes over consular cases

From 1 September, visa procedures for Nepalese citizens going to Norway will be undergoing a few changes. Applications for visa and residence permits for Nepalese citizens going to Norway will be shifted from the Danish Embassy in Kathmandu to the Norwegian Embassy in New Delhi. The same applies for Nepalese citizens going to Iceland for up to 90 days (Schengen visa).

Apply in Kathmandu – collect in Kathmandu!

Although the place for case processing moved, the good news is that you do not have to. Applications will still be received and passports returned at the Visa Application Centre in Kathmandu.
