Citizens of the Russian Federation will need to apply for a visa for travelling to Norway. Extensive information is provided on the website of Norway’s embassy in Russia. Please follow the link on their website to the “Application Portal”.

In order to apply for a visa, you’ll need an invitation letter from the University of Tromsø. Please send an email to providing the following information:

• Name
• Date of birth
• Passport number

We will then send you an invitation letter (PDF attachment to an email). Please attach this invitation letter to your application, and submit it to the appropriate Norwegian diplomatic station (either the embassy in Moscow, the general consulate in St. Petersburg, the general consulate in Murmansk, or the consulate in Arkhangelsk – depending on where you live. See the embassy website for information.)
