Travel and border information for Norway

Information in Norwegian / English

Visitor's visa

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days.

UK passport holders do not need a visitor's visa.

If you plan to visit more than one Schengen country in the course of one trip, or if you plan several separate trips within a period of two months, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your main destination based on the length of your stay, or the purpose of stay.

If you plan to visit several Schengen countries and the main destination cannot be determined, you must submit your application to the embassy or consulate of the country that is your first point of entry to the Schengen area.

EEA Family Members: If you hold an EU/EEA Residence card according to Article 10 of EU Directive 38/2004, you do not need a visa for visits up to 90 days to Norway, but you must be accompanied by your EU/EEA spouse/partner/parent or travel in order to reunite with your spouse. It is your responsibility to document this at the border control.

If you are travelling alone you will need a visa.

Please note that residence cards issued to family members of UK citizens living in the UK do not exempt their holders from the visa requirement.

Residence permits issued under the EU Settlement Scheme (Settlement and Pre-Settlement) do not exempt their holders from the visa requirement.
