Information on how to apply for a visa to visit the United States is available on the following website:

The Official Website for Visa Information in Norway


Traveling to the United States

All travelers going to the United States must either have a valid visa, or be eligible to travel to the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Norwegian citizens who are planning to use the VWP must register in ESTA before traveling. Only travelers who meet the requirements of the Visa Waiver Program can use ESTA to travel.

Who needs a visa?

Anyone who is not eligible to enter the United States visa free under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), or is not exempt from the visa requirement, or whose registration has been denied under ESTA, must apply for a visa. This includes travelers who are in transit through the United States to another country. Please note: We recommend that travelers who have been arrested and/or convicted of an offense apply for a visa at the Embassy. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act does not apply for U.S. visa law. 

Please see our "information on how to apply" for a short description of the visa application process

ESTA Changes


    After recent changes to the ESTA-registration, we recommend travelers to check the status of their previously approved registrations. Travelers who have had their ESTA-registrations revoked are advised to apply for a non-immigrant visa and an expedited appointment if they have imminent travel plans to the United States. Please see more information in the following press release on our website.
