All applicants to Norway should submit their applications in person at the Visa Application Centre. Book an appointment to visit Visa Application Centre (Mandatory): To avoid waiting time due to high volume of applicants applying at the same time, we strongly recommend you book an appointment before visiting the Visa Application Centre. Booking and appointment is FREE OF CHARGE and is subject to availability. To book an appointment, please click here.
Applications for Norway short-stay visa and long-stay are accepted at the Visa Application Centre.
Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on what your type of category of residence permit you are applying for – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a residence and how long it will take to process, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration in Norway.
Applicants who wish to apply for a residence permit are requested to fill in the application form online using the secure Application Portal before submitting their supporting documents at the Norway Visa Application Centre.

Those who register their applications online using the Application Portal prior to showing up at the Norway Visa Application Centre must pay the handling fee online using a credit card (Mastercard or Visa). 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 yet registered their applications online prior to showing up at the Norway Visa Application Centre, may register their applications online at the Application Centre using designated kiosks. Please make sure that you bring a credit card with you to ensure that the handling fee may be paid online using the Application Portal.
Please ensure you read the security regulation notices before you visit the Visa Application Centres / Consulate/ Embassy.
