Strong historical ties link Norway and the United States. Between 1825 and 1940, more than one-third of Norway's population emigrated to America. Allies ever since, the two nations fought together in World War II and were co-founders of both the United Nations and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Today, the Embassy in Washington is Norway's largest, with a staff of around 50, including representatives from a number of Norwegian ministries.

The Administrative and Consular Section deals with all matters related to passports, visa and judicial affairs and also all administrative matters concerning the Embassy.

  • Visas
  • Passports
  • Residence and Work permits
  • Driving License
  • Family and legal matters
  • Elections
  • Legalisation
  • Legislation, etc.

In an emergency outside of office hours, all calls will be redirected to the emergency call center of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Oslo, Norway. Residents of Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin may contact the Embassy directly regarding passports, visas and consular matters. Residents of other states should contact the Consulate General closest: Houston, New York or San Francisco. The Honorary Consul General in Minneapolis covers Minnesota.

The Consular Section in the Embassy works closely with the three Norwegian Consulates General in the United States. These Consulates General, each headed by a Consul General, supervise Honorary Consuls around the country. The section also has administrative responsibilities pertaining to Embassy personnel and buildings.

Citizens of the United States traveling to Norway must have a valid passport (that does not expire before the end of their visit), but do not require a visa for stays of less than 90 days within a six-month period. Other travelers may apply for a Schengen visa, which allows them to enter Belgium or another Schengen country and then to travel freely throughout the Schengen zone for a period not to exceed 90 days.

For issuance or renewal of a Norwegian passport the applicant may submit an application in person at the Norwegian Embassy in Washington or the Consulate General in New York, San Francisco or Houston. Due to the implementation of biometric passports, the Honorary Consulates, including the Honorary Consulate General in Minneapolis, are no longer able to accept passport applications for persons over 12 years of age.

All Norwegian citizens must have a registered personal number in the National Registry before a passport application may be submitted at the Foreign Service Mission. Application for a national personal number may be placed with all Foreign Service Missions.

The applicants may choose which Embassy or Consulate General they wish to file the passport application with. They may also apply for passport at any police station or passport office while visiting Norway. Delivery/distribution of the passport will take place as it does today, at the designated Embassy or Consulate. In some countries, the applicant may also receive the passport through registered mail to the local post office.

Processing time is 3-4 weeks, but may be up to 6 weeks if you need to apply for a Norwegian personal number or have changed your name. In case of an emergency, a temporary emergency passport may be issued by the foreign mission. An emergency passport needs to be surrendered at the end of the trip. The fee is the same as for a regular passport.

NOTE: Fees are payable by money order or certified check only.
