Visa to Norway

Visa and insurance information


Participants who need a visa in order to enter the Schengen area (Schengen short stay visa) are recommended to apply for a visa as early as possible. Participants who travel to Norway via a third country are reminded that they should also check with the authorities of that country whether they might need, additionally, a transit visa. Kindly note that it is your responsibility to apply for and obtain a visa in advance of your journey to Norway.

Information on visa requirements for Norway can be found on the website of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI).   To facilitate the application process, please consult the nearest Norwegian embassy’s website for accurate information about the specific procedures and documents needed in your country. For an overview of Norwegian representations in the world and links to their contact information, please visit this website. Handling time for visa applications, once a complete application dossier has been handed in, is normally 15 working days.
