About the Embassy in Washington, D.C

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

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.
