Apply to stay longer in Norway

Your visa can only be extended in very special cases, for example if you have become seriously ill or if there has been a natural disaster.


  • You must pay an application fee.
  • You must still meet the same requirments as when you applied for the visa.
  • You cannot have stayed in Norway or the Schengen area for more than 90 days.
  • You must have a special and unforeseen reason for applying. Such reasons could be, for example, that you have been in an accident, that a member of your immediate family has fallen ill or that the business meeting you are attending has been postponed. This must have happened after you arrived in Norway.
