Travel to the EU

Useful information on travelling from Norway to the EU, such as visas, travel restrictions and consulates, and for studying there.

The Schengen Area, consisting of 26 countries including Norway and Iceland, is an area without internal borders where citizens, many non-EU nationals, business people and tourists can freely circulate without being subjected to border checks and passport controls. The right to free travel applies to everyone with legal residence in a Schengen country, both citizens and third-country nationals who have entered legally into a Schengen country.

As Norway is part of the Schengen cooperation, Norwegian citizens — and citizens from third countries who have been granted legal residence in Norway — have the right to travel freely for up to 90 days within the Schengen Area. In other words: they do not need visas for travel to the EU/Schengen Area.

As an EU/EEA citizen with a valid identity card or passport, you can stay in Norway for up to 3 months (90 days). If your family members are EEA citizens as well, this also applies to them. Family members who are non-EEA citizens must have a valid passport and be able to prove that they are part of your household or that they are in your keep.

For more information on visits and holidays in Norway, please visit the website of the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) and/or the Norwegian police.

Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s (EU) programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020, and is the world's largest educational programme with a budget of €14.7 billion. Norway participates as a programme country in the Erasmus+ programme on an equal footing with EU countries.

Erasmus+ provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience and volunteer abroad. The programme includes pupils, students, recent graduates and employees at education and training institutions. The EU's goal is to double the number of persons who receive support every year through the programme by 2020.  

Erasmus+ builds on the priorities of the EU's 10-year strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, Europe 2020 Strategy. In line with these, some of the key focus areas of Erasmus+ are quality in teaching and training, innovation and the connection between education and the working community.

Who can participate?

Students can receive support for undertaking a semester or traineeship abroad as long as it is an integral part of their education. Erasmus+ funding is available to students at Bachelor and Master levels, as well as for Doctoral candidates.

Employees at higher education institutions or companies can receive support for teaching or training.

Who can apply?

Norwegian higher education institutions can apply for support for their students or employees through Erasmus+.

All higher education institutions have to enter into an inter-institutional agreement with a partner institution before student and employee mobility can begin.

There is one agreement text that applies to all agreements with institutions in programme countries, and one that applies to agreements with institutions in partner countries (countries outside the EU / EEA). Agreement templates are available on the pages of the European Commission.

Students or employees cannot apply themselves, but have to contact the international coordinator at their university or college.

Programme country and programme partner

Programme countries in Erasmus+ include the 28 EU countries, the three EEA countries, as well as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey. Partner countries include Switzerland, Russia and neighbouring countries in the Eastern and Western Balkans and Southern Mediterranean. Other countries have the opportunity to participate under certain conditions. See the Erasmus+ programme guide for 2016 for more information.

Norwegian participation

The Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) is the national agency for education and sports, while the youth section of the new programme (Youth in Action) is administered by The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs.
