Before you apply
You should apply well in advance and at the latest 15 days before you plan to travel. You can submit your application up to three months before your planned departure.
We recommend that you do not buy your ticket until a visa has been granted.
Before you can hand in the required documentation, you must register your application online. When you come to hand in your documentation, you will be asked to provide fingerprints.
You may be asked to provide additional documentation or to come for an interview.
If you plan to visit Norway for less than 90 days, you can apply for a visitor’s visa. With this visa you can visit all Schengen countries. Because of the situation in Iran, it can be difficult for applicants from Iran to get a visa.
In Iran, the processing time for the applications is normally up to 15 days. In some cases, applications are sent to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) and the processing time for these may be up to 30 days. In exceptional cases UDI may take up to 60 days to make a decision.
When citizens of certain countries apply for a Schengen visa, they are subject to prior consultation with other Schengen countries. This may take 8 days, but in most cases it will still be within the normal 15 days of processing time.
Some persons who have a residence permit in an EU/EEA country or a special passport, do not need to apply for a visitor’s visa.
In order to apply for a visa from Iran you must either be a citizen of Iran or legally reside in Iran.
It is the person who wants to come to Norway who has to apply. If you want someone to act on your behalf in connection with your application, you must authorise this person to do so.
If you have any questions about visitor’s visas, you can contact VFS Global’s Visa Application Centre (Helpline: +98 2127674000)
