What happens if I cannot hand in my application due to a closed Embassy/ Application Centre or a suspended representation agreement?

It may still be challenging in some countries to receive applications for a residence permit or visitor's visa and issuing visas, due to closed or reduced opening hours in some foreign service missions and application centres. Unfortunately, the UDI cannot assist persons who are unable to submit their applications due to closed foreign service missions or application centres.

In countries where other Schengen countries' embassies normally accept visitor's visa applications on behalf of Norway, it will be challenging to submit visa applications now, due to a temporarily suspended representation agreement. We advise you to contact the nearest Norwegian embassy (external website) that can issue visas to inquire if you can submit an application to them. Unfortunately, the UDI cannot assist you in submitting applications in countries with suspended agreements.
