How To Apply

Step 1 :

Online registration is mandatory for all applications.Please refer to the application portal. Before registration , please make sure you choose the correct category of permit you are applying for. 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.

Application Portal:

Nationals of certain countries need a visa in order to visit Norway for up to 90 days. All foreign nationals who are to stay in Norway for more than 90 days must have a residence permit. Foreign nationals who are to work in Norway will in many cases need to have a residence permit, even for stays of less than 90 days.

Online registration using the Application Portal requires payment of the application fee online using a credit/debit 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 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/debit card with you to ensure that the Application fee may be paid online using the Application Portal.

The relevant requirement for documents can be found under each category on the Embassy’s website

Step 2 :

Applications for Visa and residence permits must as a general rule be submitted by the applicant in person. If you reside in Nigeria but are a citizen of another country, you must have had a work or residence permit in Nigeria for the past six months before you submit the application.

All applications for residence permits will be forwarded by the Embassy in  Accra to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) in Norway for consideration. The applicant has to stay outside the Schengen area until the permit has been granted by UDI.

Step 3 :

Please visit the VFS Application Centre to submit your Schengen visa application. You must bring all the required documents in original.

In addition, you must bring one set of clear photocopies of all your documents, including a copy of your personal bank statement. It is very important that your photocopied set of documents is not stapled, bound, glued or with paper clips, because we will put all your photocopied documents into a scanner.
