Visa Processing

Dear all Visa applicants,

The Norwegian Visa Hub in Abu Dhabi has registered all cases and we are currently making decision in cases submitted in June/July in Iran, Pakistan and United Arb Emirates. As for Saudi Arabia, we are processing cases submitted mid-July.

It is important that travelers apply for Schengen visa to Norway at least 30 days before your planned travel date.

We give priority according to travel dates and our target is to provide an answer prior to departure dates. In this regard, we stress that you should not buy your tickets and pay hotel bookings before you know that a visa has been granted.

Kindly note that you need to have a prebooked appointment with VFS in order to submit your visa or residence permit applications. Information on how to book appointments can be found at the homepage of VFS Global.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and we will regularly update the situation on the Embassy’s homepage. We also refer to information on the webpages of VFS Global and VFS Helpline.

Wishing you a very good trip to @visitnorway, with kindest regards,

Royal Norwegian Embassy - Abu Dhabi
