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.

Norway handles visa applications on behalf of Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Lithuania. If you are applying for a visa to travel to one of these countries, you are to follow the same process as if you are applying for a visa to Norway.
