Scandinavians are known for traveling. There are not many places you travel to where you do not meet one Scandinavian. Perhaps it is the cold and harsh winters that makes people travel abroad, or simply because of the curiosity of seeing a country that is different. Whatever the reason, the Scandinavians are diligent when it comes to traveling and many have found their way to Southeast Asia.
Vietnam especially is one very popular destination. Traveling here you can find people from all nationalities – German, Swedish, Norwegian, Brazilian, Russian, Portuguese… You name it! The country has experienced a big tourism boom in the past years, and every year people discover more places in the country. If you think you have seen it all… You probably still haven’t.
When it comes to Norwegian citizens, you do not need to apply for a visa if you are only staying for less than 15 days. However, if you intend to stay for more than 15 days up to 90 days, you will need to apply for a visa. There are three options for you, so you can choose the one you prefer and you find is the most convenient option:
Is Vietnam E-visa for Norway citizens eligble?
Yes, citizens of Norway are eligible to apply for an electronic visa or Vietnam e-visa (30 days, single entry)
From 01 Feb 2019, under Decision 17/2019/NĐ-CP of the Government of Vietnam, there are 80 countries (including Norway) which citizens of it are eligible to apply online for Vietnam e-visa (an e-visa is a single entry valid for staying 30 days).
The Vietnam E-visa for Norway citizens is valid for 30 days, single entry, which means that if you intend on staying for longer and wish to have a multiple-entries visa, you have to apply for point 2 (which I will explain now).

Note: if you want to visit Vietnam for multiple times in one month or want to visit Vietnam for more than one month, please choose options below:
- Applying Vietnam Visa On Arrival – Apply online for pre-approval then pick up your visa on arrival at the airport
- Apply for a visa at the Vietnam embassy in Norway
Vietnam Visa on Arrival
This visa will help you get a multi-entry visa, so you can visit other countries and still be able to come back to Vietnam without having to apply for a visa again. However, if you are from Norway and enters Vietnam as a unilateral visa-exempted, the entry date must be at least 30 days from the previous exit as unilateral visa-exempted person. Otherwise you are required to have an appropriate visa in order to enter Vietnam again.
The visa process differs slightly from the e-visa, but it’s not difficult or complicated. With the visa on arrival program you can apply to stay for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and even up to 12 months! What you need to do is applying online (you can do this through our website), wait for the visa approval and once you get it, download it so you can present it to the immigration officers at the airport and pick up your visa. When the staff sees the approval letter, you need to pay the stamp fee, and voilá! You are ready to enter Vietnam and explore!
Applying Vietnam visa on Arrival, you can get your Vietnam visa in Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Alesund, Stavanger, Tromso, Bodo, Kristiansand or any cities in Norway. Let’s apply visa at visaonlinevietnam.com!
Applying for a Vietnam Visa at Vietnam Embassy in Norway
There is also the third option, which means that you can go to the closest Vietnam Embassy in Norway and get your visa stamped. This is the more inconvenient option since you have to go to the Embassy in person, bring all your important documents and then come back to pick it up. If you don’t live close by, it can be both time consuming and costly. However, this is one of the options in order to get a visa. You just have to make sure that your passport has a minimum of 6 months validity and blank pages.
