The Norwegian Embassy in Lusaka was closed 1st of July 2016. The Norwegian Embassy in Lilongwe has taken over the responsibilities to look after Norwegian interests in Zambia.

In 2015, The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that it will close down five of its embassies during 2016, and that the embassy in Lusaka was one of the embassies affected. The other three are in Zimbabwe (Harare), Kazakhstan (Astana) and Bulgaria (Sofia).

Norway has been present in Zambia since 1971, and established an embassy in 1995. Even without an Embassy, ties between Norway and Zambia will continue. Norway remains a contributor to projects in governance, agriculture and natural resources management. There is also an ongoing interest from Norwegian businesses to invest in Zambia.
