Will I need an ETIAS or a Schengen Visa?
Norway is regarded as a member of the European Free Trade Association and therefore Schengen. However, it is not part of the EU. This means to enter Norway, you must hold a valid Schengen visa. This also means you must tell the authorities in Norway when and where you are arriving. You will be allowed to stay in the country, and the Schengen zone up to 90 days. Upon the introduction of ETIAS, Norway will adopt the same rules as countries who are members of both the EU and Schengen zone. This will allow travellers a chance to apply using an ETIAS visa and travel freely within the Schengen zone.
Why should I visit Norway
Winter sports, watersports and hiking are great reasons to visit Norway. Norwegians love the outdoors, and it is evident through the range of activities that can be done year round. However, if you are looking for a more relaxed journey abroad, then Norway still has plenty to offer. City breaks to Oslo give visitors plenty to do and see at their own pace. Whilst a trip to the arctic circle will give a chance to stay at the world famous ice hotel and to see the Northern Lights!
