After Submission

FOR VISITOR’S VISA

You will be notified by email as soon as your visa application is processed.

The passport may be collected at the place where the request was made, or it may be forwarded by COURIER

If the visa is approved, a sticker will be placed on your passport. Please check the visa period. The period will indicate how many days you can stay in the Schengen area. How to read the visa sticker:  https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/visa-policy/read_visa_sticker_en

When crossing the border into the Schengen area, you will need to submit the following:

  • Your passport with the visa sticker
  • Documentation proving means of subsistence during your stay, such as: cash value or credit card. If you have a guarantee form signed by the person who invites you in Schengen, you should bring it with you.
  • Relevant documentation that justifies the reason for the trip, for example: invitation letters, hotel reservations, etc.

The passport control officer at the port of entry can also request your fingerprints to check if they match those that were made in the visa application. As long as your visa is valid, you can travel freely through the countries of the Schengen area or through the countries where the visa is valid. If you leave the Schengen area and travel, for example, to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Turkey or Russia, you must have a visa that gives authorization for multiple entries.

If the visa is denied, you will receive a letter with information of the reasons.

You can appeal the decision within 3 weeks after receiving the letter.

FOR RESIDENCE PERMITS FOR NORWAY:

Applications for residence permits are processed by the UDI. You can find information about the processing time of the process on the UDI website. You will be notified by email once your residence permit  application is processed.

If the residence permit is approved you will receive a UDI document that you must print and take on the trip to Norway. If you are a citizen who requires a visitor’s visa for the Schengen area (eg. Bolivia, Ecuador, China, Russia, etc.), you will also receive a visa in your passport – this is called a “D visa” (unlike the visitor’s visa, which is called a “C visa.”)When you cross the border into the Schengen area, you should submit:

  • Your passport
  • Copy of residence permit

If you are from a country which needs a visitor’s visa to enter Schengen (eg. Bolivia, Ecuador, China, Russia, etc.) you will also have to have a D visa affixed to your passport.

You should arrange an interview with the police within 7 (seven) days of your arrival in Norway.The police will take your biometrics (a picture of you and your fingerprints) and proceed to issue a residence card. The residence card is an identity card with your photo and confirms that you have a residence permit in Norway. With this residence card, you can also visit other Schengen countries. More information on the regulations on this subject is available on the UDI website.

If the visa is denied, you will receive a letter with information of the reasons.

You can appeal the decision within 3 weeks after receiving the letter.
