I have been granted a visa that is only valid for Norway - what rules are important to remember?
If you have been granted a visitor visa that is only valid for Norway, this will be stated on your visa. This is called a national visitor visa. The reason why you have been granted a national visitor visa is that you have an important reason for visiting Norway, but you do not meet all the requirements for being granted a visa that is valid for the whole Schengen area.
If you have been granted a national visitor visa, you must note the following:
- You must travel directly into and out of Norway. For example, you cannot stop en route in another Schengen country or travel by car through other Schengen countries on your way to Norway.
- You cannot visit other Schengen countries while you are in Norway.
If you leave Norway, you cannot return until you have been granted a new visitor visa.
