The Directorate of Immigration (UDI) has prepared a form to be filled by the sponsor declaring that the relationship is genuine and has been lasting for more than nine months. This comes in addition to other required documents for visa applicaion. The form can be found at UDI.no. Visa applicants must bring a copy of the signed form when handing the application and supporting documents at the VFS offices. All other requirements for a visa are still in effect. Travellers who are exempted from the visa requirement must bring the form when checking in at the airport.”
