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.

Applications for visitor’s visas and residence permits from the Philippines are handled by the Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. 

The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Bangkok also represents Iceland in visa matters. If you are applying for a visa to travel to Iceland, you are to follow the same process as if you were applying for a visa to Norway.

All applications must be submitted through VFS Global in Cebu or Manila. It is mandatory to book an appointment.
