  • What documents are needed for a trip to Norway?

    As Norway is part of the Schengen area, there are no border controls for travelers coming from another country in the Schengen area, such as France. However, a valid passport or national identity card is required for entry and stay in the territory.

    The attention of travelers is drawn to the fact that the Norwegian authorities have not recognized the extension of the validity of identity cards whose validity has expired. These are national identity cards (CNI) issued to adults between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2013 and considered by the French authorities to be valid for 5 years after the expiry date indicated on the back, no material modification of the plastic card attesting to this.

    Consequently, in case of exceeding the validity period of the CNI, it is imperative to bring a valid passport to go to Norway.

    Some organizations (banks in particular) require the presentation of a passport to complete certain formalities.

    The Svalbard archipelago does not belong to the Schengen area. To get there, the presentation of a valid national identity card is mandatory. As the presentation of a passport is sometimes required by the border police when departing from certain flights to Svalbard or when arriving on site, it is strongly recommended to bring a valid passport to visit this archipelago.

    This information is communicated subject to modification by the authorities of the visited country. It is not uncommon for border crossing rules to evolve. We therefore strongly advise you to inquire about the formalities at the consulate of your country of origin.
