    Are you applying for a residence permit to Norway? From 12 May 2019 applications will be sent to Amman.

    New regional hub system for immigration cases:

    As from 12 May 2019, the Norwegian Embassy in Cairo will no longer be responsible for applications for visitor’s visa or residence permit to Norway submitted at the VFS Global application center in Cairo. Instead, VFS will send the applications to the Norwegian Embassy in Amman, Jordan.

    Please note that you will still be able to submit the application and collect your passport and decision documents from the VFS application center located in Cairo even though your application is sent to and processed by another embassy. The application procedures as well as the application fees will remain unchanged.
