About the Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Norway established its first embassy in Washington, D.C., on October 31, 1905.

NOTE: The Embassy is moving to temporary quarters. We are closing to the public at 1:00 p.m. on Thurs., May 16 and will reopen at our new location (see below) at 9:00 a.m., Tues., May 21.

Strong historical ties link Norway and the United States. Between 1825 and 1940, more than one-third of Norway's population emigrated to America. Allies ever since, the two nations fought together in World War II and were co-founders of both the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Today, the Embassy in Washington is Norway's largest, with a staff of approximately 50, including representatives from a number of Norwegian ministries.
