Norwegian Passport Applications

**As of the 1st of June, 2021 Norwegian honorary consulates, including the consulate in Cape Town, are no longer able to accept passport applications for children.** This is due to new passport regulations introduced by the Norwegian Directorate of Police, with stricter requirements for ID control and biometry. As of the 1st of June, all Norwegians, regardless of age, will have to apply for their passports in person at the embassy in Pretoria. ​ To schedule an appointment at the embassy, please send an email with a copy of your current Norwegian passport and your South African entry visa/residence permit to [cons.pretoria@mfa.no](mailto:cons.pretoria@mfa.no).
