Online registration and payment
Before you can hand in your passport and other documentation at a VFS application centre or a Norwegian diplomatic or consular mission, you must register your application online and pay the fee. If this is the first time you are registering an application in the portal, you will need to create a user account first.
Once you have completed the application form online and paid the fee, you will receive confirmation by email with a copy of your application summary, a signature letter (cover letter) and payment receipt attached. You need to print the signature letter, sign it, and submit it together with the other required documentation.
Once you have registered, you will receive confirmation by email, with a cover letter attached. The cover letter will confirm that you have filled in the application form and paid the fee. You need to print this letter and submit it together with the other required documentation.
Please visit the UDI website for more information about the fees.
In Uganda, applications are received by an external service provider, VFS Global, which charges a service fee. The service fee is EUR 30 payable in Ugandan Shillings at VFS Global. The service fee is levied per application over and above the application fee. The fee mentioned is per applicant. There is no exemption from the VFS Global service fee.
Please note that an additional courier fee will also be added as VFS Global will send the application by courier mail to the Norwegian Embassy in Nairobi for further examination.
Please note that all fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
VFS also offers some additional services against a fee. Please note that these services are optional
