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.

Sudanese citizens must apply for a visitor's visa. Likewise, citizens of Sudan need a residence permit in order to work or to take up residence for longer than 90 days.

Schengen visas
Schengen visa applications in Sudan are handled by the Embassy of Sweden, who are responsible for issuing Schengen visas to Norway. Please visit their website for more information on how to apply for a Schengen visa.
