Visa Information

The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Juba does not handle Schengen visa applications or Residence Permit applications. Applications must be handed in at VFS in Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Kampala or Addis Ababa. The Hub at the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi will then handle your application.

Please note:

Please note that the opening hours will be from 8 am to 1 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please also note that they will only accept applications and resubmissions for residence permits.

Due to COVID-19 and restrictions on who can enter into Norway, no Schengen visas are being processed unless there is an extraordinary case. You can read more about it here

The Norwegian Embassy in Juba does not issue Schengen visas to applicants in South Sudan. However, other Norwegian embassies in the neighbouring countries are currently handling Schengen visa applications for the Norwegian Embassy in Juba. 

All visa applicants applying to a Norwegian Embassy must apply for their visas online. This can be done through the Application Portal. 

Please be aware that not all Embassies can issue Schengen visas to nationals of other countries than the one in which the Embassy is located. A Schengen visa is required if you intend to travel to other countries in the Schengen area.

If you require a Schengen visa, please verify that the Embassy you have chosen can process your application before you apply.
