With the transition to the new Norwegian passports, there are also new immigration passports and travel documents for refugees. The travel documents have a new design, in line with the Norwegian passports.

It is not necessary for those who have a valid travel document to apply for a new one. Your current travel document is valid until the expiration date.

Appearance of the new travel documents

The color of travel documents issued after 19 October 2020 has changed.

  • Travel documents for refugees are now blue. In the past, these have been green.
  • Immigration passports are now gray. In the past, these have been blue.

Remember that even if you have a travel document issued before 19 October 2020, this will still be valid until the expiry date stated in the travel document.

Here is an overview of the various travel documents available in Norway.
