Visa and letter of invitation

It is the delegate’s responsibility to investigate the visa requirements for Norway and to apply for a visa, if necessary. Some people can visit Norway without a visa, but most people from countries outside the EU/EEA must apply for a visitor’s visa. Delegates who require an entry visa must allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Delegates should contact the nearest Norwegian embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications.

If you require a visa, we advise you to obtain and submit an official letter of invitation from the conference organizers to help facilitate the visa process. A letter of invitation does not financially obligate the conference organizers in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the conference are the sole responsibility of the delegate. The letter of invitation does not guarantee an entry visa to Norway.
