Processing times

Case processing times and case handling.

The processing time for a visa application depends on the nationality of the applicant and the supporting documents submitted. Applicants should always apply several weeks before their intended journey. Applications for Schengen visas can be submitted at the earliest 90 days before the planned travel date, and at the latest 15 days before the planned departure date.
If the case is considered uncomplicated, it will be processed within 15 working days (counting from the day the Embassy receives all the requested documents). If the case is considered complicated, it will be handled by the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) in Norway, and it may take more than 15 days to process.
