Visit the United States


Due to high demand, the U.S. Embassy in Norway has limited visa appointment availability. We are offering as many visa appointments as resources allow. Please continue to check our appointment calendar and monitor our website for updates.

What is a Visa?

A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States generally must first obtain a U.S. visa, which is placed in the traveler’s passport, a travel document issued by the traveler’s country of citizenship or nationality.

Certain international travelers may be eligible to travel to the United States without a visa if they meet the requirements for visa-free travel under the Visa Waiver Program.  The Visa section of this website is all about U.S. visas for foreign citizens to travel to the United States.  If you cannot find what you are looking for here, please visit Travel.State.gov for additional information.

Note: U.S. citizens do not need a U.S. visa for travel to the United States, but when planning travel abroad a U.S. citizen may need a visa issued by the embassy or consulate of the country they wish to visit.

Applying for a Visa in Norway

Visa applications and appointments in Norway are handled by a third-party company, U.S. Travel Docs. Please visit their website for information on determining which visa type is best for you and how to apply.

U.S. Travel Docs is our official visa service provider and the only private company that the U.S. embassy and consulates in Norway authorize to provide visa information and visa application services.

Do You Already Know What Type of Visa You Need?

For nonimmigrant visas, you can go directly to the online application for the DS-160; or for immigrant visas, directly to the USCIS site for the relevant forms.  If you are unsure, please use the Visa Wizard below to help you determine your visa type.
