Applying for a Norwegian Passport, National Identity Number or Citizenship


Thales, who produces Norwegian passports and ID cards, have reported material shortage and reduced capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Europe. This affects Norway and other European countries. The Consulate General requests that applicants who already have a valid passport from another country or do not have an urgent need for a Norwegian passport, to wait until the fall of 2022 to renew their Norwegian passport.
