Visa restriction

From 21 March 2020, the validity of single or multiple-entry visa issued prior to 20 March 2020 by the Embassy of Japan in Norway has been suspended. In addition, visa exemption measures for Norway have been suspended for the time being.

As Norway is specified as target area for denial of landing permission from 27 March 2020, the Embassy of Japan in Norway in principal will not accept new visa application unless there are exceptional circumstances.

As of 1 October 2020, the Embassy of Japan can accept visa application from those who fall under certain cases.
