Residence permit

A residence permit gives you the opportunity to work in Norway and to stay for more than 90 days. Important message to all visa applicants: Norway has implemented entry restrictions to Norway due to the spread of COVID-19. Foreign nationals without a valid residence permit in Norway will be rejected at the border and no visas for visitors to Norway are currently being granted by Norwegian missions abroad. Due to the Covid-19 situation, it is currently not possible to book appointments to submit applications at the Norwegian Embassy in Copenhagen. We cannot predict when it will be possible to book or submit any applications again but are looking into a solution. More information at
