    Are you applying for a visa or residence permit to Norway? From 20 June 2019 applications will be sent to Amman.

    New regional hub system for immigration cases:

    As of the 20 June 2019, the Norwegian Representative Office in Al Ram will no longer receive applications for visitor’s visa or residence permit to Norway submitted at the VFS Norway Visa Application Center in Ramallah or Gaza City. Instead, your application will be sent to the Norwegian Embassy in Amman, Jordan.

    What is new?

    Although your application will be sent to another embassy, you will still be able to submit the application and collect your passport and decision documents from the VFS application center located in Ramallah or Gaza City. Whereas the application procedures remain the same, please be informed that a courier fee will be introduced as of 20 June 2019 to cover transportation of your application documents between VFS Ramallah/Gaza City and Amman, Jordan.

    The application fee and service fee will remain unchanged. See our ‘Application fees at a glance’-section for further information.

    Please note that applicants with an East Jerusalem ID will no longer be able to submit their applications to the Norwegian Representative Office in Al Ram after 20 June 2019. Instead, they may choose to go to VFS Global in Tel Aviv.
