Norway opens eight visa centres throughout China to facilitate application processes

1

Norway opened eight visa centres throughout China with the intent of reducing travel times and facilitating the visa application processes (hegnar.no, 03-Dec-2018).

Chinese travellers previously had to travel to Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou to apply for a visa to Norway. Norwegian residents were also the only Schengen citizens not permitted to travel without a visa to Shanghai and Beijing from Oct-2017.

Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs communications manager Frode Overland Andersen said there are hopes that Norway will “soon be included” in the visa-free transit programme applying to other parts of China.
