Welcome to the website of Norway Visa Application Centre in Uganda. VFS Global has been appointed as an outsourced partner by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to facilitate the submission of visa applications in Uganda for any person who require a visa or residence permit to enter Norway.

  • 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 Centre 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 Centres. The Application Centres will still be open for submission of applications for Residence Permits to Norway. For any enquiries, please write to us on or call us on 0205000617.
