Visa Information

PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for all visa applications is Monday 20 April 2020.

The Visa Invitation Letter request process is now open for Routes Europe 2020. 

Please check with your local embassy or consulate for the rules specific to your country as some delegates may require further documentation to support their visa application. 

If you plan to visit Norway for up to 90 days, you can apply for a visitor's visa. With this visa you can visit all Schengen countries.

Do you need a visa to enter Norway?

Some people do not need a visa to visit Norway because they hold a passport from a country that Norway has a visa exemption agreement with. This also applies if you have a residence permit in an EU/EEA country. You can find the full list here:

For more information on the visa requirements from your country please see the official web page of the immigration authorities:

Visa Invitation Letter

Please complete the electronic request form below in full ensuring accuracy throughout as changes to any application will face delays in processing times. Once we receive your application, the host will prepare your visa invitation letter based on the information that you provide and address it to your visa issuing authority.

Visa Invitation Letter Request Form

Most embassies and consulates accept a scanned copy of the invitation letter and therefore this will be issued as a PDF file via email. If your embassy or consulate does not accept an electronic copy, please select an alternative format in the ‘Format Options’ section of the request form.

Please note – invitation letters will only be issued to individuals already registered to attend the event. Should you have any questions relating to visas or the visa invitation letter procedure please contact us at
