The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kosovo - Prishtina has now started using the Norwegian Application Portal - an Internet-based visa application procedure. The new application procedure will result in shorter processing time, less queues at the Embassy, as well as making it easier for applicants to re-apply for subsequent visas. Applicants can also check the status of their applications online. Applicants using the Application Portal will be given priority.
Visa applicants who wish to apply for a visa at the Embassy in Prishtina may fill in the application form, pay the application fee and book an appointment on the secure Application Portal before submitting their supporting documents at the Embassy. It will still be possible to hand in paper applications. However, applicants who apply online will be given priority.
All applicants must book an appointment on the Application Portal before coming to the Embassy to hand in their supporting documents.
It is not possible to book an appointment without a visa application.
Cancellation of Application
To cancel an application, you must contact the Visa Section at the Embassy. It is not possible to cancel an application using the Application Portal.
No Internet access?
There is a number of Internet Cafes near the Embassy.
It is also possible for the sponsor in Norway to complete all or part of the online process for the applicant (e.g. log on and pay the application fee).
Sponsors who complete the entire process for the applicant (and the applicant is unable to log on to the Portal him / herself) must send a copy of the completed application form to the applicant, so that he / she is fully aware of the information being submitted.
The application form may be viewed and / or printed out from 'Previous individual applications' on the Portal.
The applicant must also sign the cover letter (which can be printed out after an appointment has been booked or anytime after that from 'Previous individual applications' on the Portal) and submit at the Embassy along with his / her supporting documents.
The application form itself should not be submitted, as this is transferred electronically from the Application Portal to the Embassy.
How to apply - First time users
The first time you use the Application Portal, you must register as a user with a username and a password.
Usernames and passwords should not contain any special characters such as @, %, &, etc.
The password must contain at least 8 characters, at least one number and at least one CAPITAL letter (e.g. Prishtina123).
When you have registered yourself as a user on the Portal, you can fill in the application form (click on 'Apply for a visa'), pay the application fee (with a credit / debit card) and book an appointment at the Embassy.
The application will not be sent to the Embassy before the payment has been successfully processed (usually within few seconds).
If the applicant has not appeared at the Embassy within 14 days after paying the fee online, the money is transferred to the payment provider (DIBS) and later to the Embassy’s ban account and a refund will thus take 2-3 weeks.
How to apply - Existing users (who have previously used the Application Portal)
Applicants who have used the Application Portal before can simply log on, use the last application as a template and only change details such as travel dates, etc., pay the fee and book an appointment to hand in the supporting documents.
Applications can be registered individually or in groups on the Portal. A group may consist of 1 - 15 applicants, however, it is a requirement that all applicants have the same nationality and are travelling on the same dates, with the same itinerary.
Registering many applications as a group saves time, however, only individual applications may be copied for subsequent applications in the future. Families or people who always travel together to Norway may therefore want to register all applications individually.
A number of documents are required in order to process a visa application. Applicants must bring the complete supporting documents on their date of appointment.
Please see the link Visa and other permits for supporting documents.
