Renewing your passport

How to renew your Norwegian passport at the Embassy.

Applications for renewal of passports are submitted in person at the Embassy.

Call the Embassy to make an appointment; 01 774 211.

The applicant must have a valid ID, and present a valid or expired Norwegian passport and evidence of Norwegian citizenship. Applicants who do not hold such passports are required to produce equally secure identification e.g a Norwegian driver’s license. In the latter case, applicants should also bring their certificate of birth or baptism.

Applicants shall, upon presenting themselves at the Embassy, pay an application fee and thereafter submit their biometric data; one photo, two fingerprints and a signature.

Children under the age of 12, will not need to submit their biometric data, only a photo. Children over 10 years old will submit one photo and a signature.

Information about the applicant will be stored in accordance with the applicable laws, rules and regulations at any given time.

Emergency passports are issued only in exceptional circumstances, and are valid for one travel only. They are chargeable at the same rate as regular passports.

Passports are issued to minors only upon written request from both parents. When submitting the application, the minor needs to be accompanied by at least one of the parents, who must also present valid identification as per the above mentioned guidelines. Parents not appearing at the Embassy will have to present their consent in writing, with a copy of their valid identification attached.

Claims of legal custody need to be supported by documentation.

The processing time for a new passport is 3 weeks. If there also has been an application for a personal ID-number (personnummer), it will require an extra 6- 8 eight weeks for processing and delivery.
