What happens if I stay in Norway after my visa has expired?

It is important that you do not stay in Norway or other Schengen countries for more days than your visa allows.

If you stay too long in the Schengen area:

  • you risk not being granted a visitor visa the next time you apply
  • there is a risk that other members of your family will not be granted a visitor visa when they apply
  • you can be rejected from Norway by the police 
  • You can be expelled from Norway and be subject to a prohibition against entry. A prohibition against entry means that you cannot be granted a visa to the Schengen area for a period of for example two or five years.

Please remember
