Nationals of certain countries need a visa in order to visit Norway for up to 90 days. All foreign nationals who are to stay in Norway for more than 90 days must have a residence permit. Foreign nationals who are to work in Norway will in many cases need to have a residence permit, even for stays of less than 90 days.

It is also possible for the sponsor in Norway to complete all, or part of the online process for the applicant (e.g. log on and pay the application fee). Applicants, who have not registered their applications online prior to showing up at the Norway Visa Application Center, may register their applications online at the Application Center using designated kiosks. The relevant requirement for documents can be found under each category on the Embassy’s website
