Immigrant Visas

All visitors to the U.S. Embassy age two and above must wear a mask while on Embassy premises.  Visitors who have traveled internationally within the past ten days or who are under quarantine for any reason may not enter Embassy premises and must reschedule their appointment. 

If you test positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours after your visit to the embassy, please let us know as soon as possible so we may notify other visitors and our staff of possible exposure.

Immigrant visas to the United States are processed for citizens and residents of Norway at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden.

To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. The sponsor begins the process by filing a petition on the foreign citizen’s behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories on to learn about the different types of immigrant visas to the United States, including our Diversity Visa Program.  Then, follow the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process, or on the Diversity Visa Process, on to begin applying for an immigrant visa.

Once USCIS has approved your petition and you have completed pre-processing with the National Visa Center (NVC), or if you have been selected in the Diversity Visa Lottery and completed processing with the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), review the instructions given to you by the NVC or the KCC, along with the information presented on this website, for further guidance and instructions.
