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.

Nationals from the Seychelles do not need a visa to visit Norway and may stay in the country for a period of up to 90 days. Still, there are additional rules you must follow, see UDI webpage. Other nationals with a valid residence permit in the Seychelles who need a visa to visit Norway, must apply at VFS Global.

For information on how to apply for a Schengen visa or residence permit, please visit the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi's website.
