Can I travel to other countries while living in Norway?

  • After you have been issued your residence card, you can travel into and out of Norway for as long as your residence permit is valid.
  • You must bring your travel document and residence card when you travel. 
  • You can visit other Schengen countries for up to 90 days.
  • You cannot travel to your home country.
  • If you are later going to apply for a permanent residence permit, you can normally not have stayed outside Norway for more than a total of ten months in the past five years.
