Before you apply
- You should apply well in advance and as a rule no later than 15 days before you plan to travel. Due to the courier sending of documents in some countries, we recommend that you apply at least 4 weeks prior to your planned departure.
- You may submit your application up to six months before your planned departure, or up to nine months for seafarers.
- We recommend that you do not buy your ticket until a visa has been granted.
- You must register your application online before you can hand in the required documentation.
- When you hand in your application, you will be asked to provide fingerprints, unless your fingerprints have been collected within the last 59 months.
In order to apply for a visa from Palestine, you must either be a stateless Palestinian or legally reside in the Palestinian Territories.
In Palestine applicants for visas submit their applications at the visa application centre run by an external service provider, VFS Global. VFS Global will forward the visa application to the Norwegian Embassy in Amman for consideration.
NB! The Norwegian Representative Office recommends Gaza citizens to apply for a visa 6-8 weeks before the planned departure, because they need several additional permits to be allowed to travel. See "Information to Gaza Citizens" for details.
