Visitor’s visa and residence permit

A visitor's visa allows you to stay in Norway or other Schengen countries for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days. A residence permit gives you the opportunity to work in Norway and to stay for more than 90 days.

The Royal Norwegian Consulate General in New York is responsible for visas and residence permits for North, Central and South America.

Citizens of the United States (holding an american passport) do not need a visitor's visa but if you plan to stay longer than 90 days, you must apply for a residence permit. 

No other mission are not involved in the process and should not be contacted regarding immigration cases. The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Havana is responsible for applicants in the Caribbean. Honorary Consuls are not involved with immigration cases.
