Schengen Visa

Norway is part of the Schengen area which includes the following countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. A visitor's visa for one of the Schengen countries will be valid for travelling to all the other Schengen countries during the period for which the visa is valid. Over a period of six months, you are not permitted to spend more than three months in the Schengen area.

You may apply for a Schengen visa at the Norwegian Embassy if Norway is your main destination within the Schengen area. If you do not have a main destination, you must apply for a visa at the foreign mission of the Schengen country where the initial entry is to take place. The processing time of visa depends on each individual case, but normally you will receive an answer within 2 weeks. The Embassy urges applicants to apply well in advance of planned travel dates.

A visitor's visa is valid for a maximum of three months. The current visa fee is EUR. 60 (approximately IDR. 830.000). In order to be able to process the application, the Embassy will need the following documents:

* A passport or travel document valid for at least three months beyond the date of return from Norway
* A duly filled and signed application form
* Two photocopies of the personal data page of the passport, as well as all previous stamps and visas existing in the passport. Accompanying children over 18 years of age must submit their own applications The Embassy will accept passports and travel documents including more than one person. However, each person travelling over the age of 18 years has to present his/her own travel documents.
* Proof of funds (bank book, other savings, investments etc.) in cases where expenses for the visit are going to be covered by the applicant himself.
* Invitation from the host, explaining the purpose of the visit. When travelling to Norway, and expenses for the visit are to be covered by the host, a "Guarantee form for visits" has to be filled in by the host and certified by the local police authorities in Norway.
* Two passport photographs (background must be white), size 4x6 mm.
* When a visa is granted, the applicant must present a return ticket and travel insurance covering medical expenditures (miniumum coverage of USD 42.500,-) before the visa will be issued.
