Welcome to the website of Norway Visa Application center in Abidjan. VFS has been appointed as an outsourced partner by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to facilitate the visa applications for any person who require a visa to enter Norway and who are resident in Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

  • Dear Visa applicants,

    We are happy to inform you that from 10th July 2020 the visa section and visa application Centre VFS Global will gradually open their doors to receive certain categories of the visa applications.

    The opening days are currently Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8h00 to 13h00.

    Please find below the categories which can be submitted to our visa application Centre VFS Global:

    Long term visa D: following categories will be accepted:

    • Resident Permit or long stay

    Short term Schengen visa type C: following categories will be accepted:

    • Spouse/cohabitant
    • Parent/step-parent
    • Children under 21 who will visit their parents or step-parents in Norway
    • Girlfriend/boyfriend IF they have been a couple for at least 9 months

    The change is based on Annex II of the council decision, naming travelers with essential functions or needs. This means that the change in legislation will apply to all travelers in the categories above, regardless of which country they reside in

  • Restrictions on entry into Norway

    The Norwegian Government has implemented extensive restrictions on entry into Norway due to the spread of COVID-19. As a result, foreigners who do not hold a valid residence permit in Norway will be rejected at the border and refused entry into Norway. For the time being, visas for visitors to Norway will not be granted.

    For more information on the entry restrictions to Norway, please visit:

    Temporary closure of VFS’ Visa Application Centers for Norway

    Due to the extensive restrictions on entry into Norway, it will no longer be possible to submit applications for Schengen visas to Norway at any of VFS’ visa application centers. The application centers will still be open for submissions of applications for residence permits to Norway.

    For any enquiries, please contact VFS Call center: +225 20004873
