Tourism or visit Norway for other reasons

Requirements for a visa

  • You must normally have booked accommodation for the whole time period of your stay in the Schengen area.

How your application is considered

  • When we process your application, we consider how probable it is that you will return to your home country or the country you live in when the visit is over. We consider the situation in your country and your own situation.
  • We will focus on whether you have anything that ties you to your home country, for example work, property, a spouse or family members who you are supporting.
  • If we believe that it is unlikely that you will return, your application will normally be rejected. 

Your possibility of getting a visa

  • If you plan to visit Norway as a tourist, you can be granted a visa if you have strong ties to your home country.
  • If you plan to take a trip organised by a tour operator, you have a better chance of being granted a visa.
