A visitor’s visa allows you to stay in Norway or other countries in the Schengen area for up to 90 days over a period of 180 days. Citizens of Pakistan and Afghanistan are required to have a visitor’s visa to go to Norway.

The Norwegian Embassy in Abu Dhabi is responsible for processing applications from Pakistan.

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.

In order to apply for a visa from Pakistan you must either be a citizen of Pakistan or Afghanistan,  or legally reside here.

In Pakistan applicants for visas submit their applications at visa application centers run by an external service provider, VFS Global. Please note that it may take up to 15 days to get an appointment to hand in your visa application.

VFS Global will send the visa application by courier mail to the Norwegian Embassy in Abu Dhabi which is responsible for the further processing.
