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 Embassy in Manila represents four other Schengen countries on visa matters, namely Estonia, Finland, Iceland and Sweden*. If you need a visa for travelling to any of these countries, the application should be submitted to the Norwegian Embassy.
