Visa applicants who wish to apply for a Schengen visa requested to fill in the application form online using the secure Application Portal before submitting their supporting documents at the Norwegian Visa Application Centre. For more information on how to register your application online, please click here . Please note that applications for residence and work permits may not be registered on the Application Portal.
Those who register their applications online using the Application Portal prior to showing up at the Norwegian Visa Application Centre may pay the handling fee of 60 Euros online using a credit/debit card (Mastercard or Visa), and then book an appointment for when they would like to show up at the Norwegian Application Centre to submit their passport and supporting documents. Applicants with a prior appointment will be given priority and may go straight to an available counter without having to wait in line. We highly recommend that all applications for Schengen visas and 7-day entry visas are registered online prior to showing up at the Application Centre as this contributes to a more efficient and smooth process, and less waiting time for the applicant.
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 Norwegian Visa Application Centre, may register their applications online at the Visa Application Centre using designated kiosks. Please make sure that you bring a credit/debit card with you to ensure that the visa handling fee of 60 Euros may be paid online using the Application Portal.
