Visas for Norway Cup players – the Immigration Act section 10

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has agreed that the players of the teams are exempt from having to pay a visa fee, cf. Regulation (EC) No 810/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 July 2009 establishing a Community Code on Visas (Visa Code) Article 16(5) (c). Team leaders and other adult participants must pay a fee in the normal manner.

Sweden or Denmark shall process visa applications in cases where the teams will also participate in Gothia Cup in Sweden and/or Dana Cup in Denmark and these events take place before Norway Cup. See the Visa Code Article 5(1) (c). If the teams are only to participate in Norway Cup, they must submit their applications to a Norwegian foreign service mission for processing, cf. the Immigration Regulations section 3-16.

The issuing authority must consider the conditions for being granted a visa, including the return condition, in the normal manner.
