Processing Time

Normal case processing times

Most people will receive an answer within two weeks of submitting their application to a Foreign Service mission.

Which cases take longer to process?

Most cases are processed by the foreign service mission, but if the embassy is in doubt about whether you can be granted a visa, they will forward your case to the UDI.

In such cases, most applicants will receive an answer within four weeks of submitting their application to the foreign service mission.

In a few, very special cases, however, the case will not be processed until up to eight weeks of the application being submitted to the foreign service mission.

What can you do to contribute to your case being processed as quickly as possible?

Make sure that your application is completed correctly and in full.

Make sure that you enclose all the necessary documents, please see our checklist.

Make sure that your, and your sponsor’s, contact information is up-to-date.

It is also a good idea to make sure that the person who has invited you to Norway has power of attorney from you, so that we can give important information to him or her.
