- Norwegian citizens and holders of Norwegian national ID cards will be permitted to enter Turkey without presenting a passport
The governments of Norway and Turkey approved the use of Norwegian national ID cards for entry into Turkey until the end of 2022. Norwegian citizens and holders of national ID cards will be permitted to enter Turkey without presenting proof of a passport so long as they hold a valid ID card. To qualify, Norwegian travelers will need to travel to Turkey via a direct flight and have a Norwegian ID card valid for a minimum of six months from the date of entry into Turkey.
What are the Changes?
The governments of Turkey and Norway have established a temporary arrangement that will allow Norwegian national ID card holders to enter Turkey without providing passport information. Eligible travelers must return to Norway before December 31, 2022. A passport must be presented if travelers seek to remain in Turkey for a more extended period. This decision was made as a result of passport issuance delays in Norway.
This temporary arrangement will remain in effect until December 31, 2022. Continue to check the government of Turkey’s and the government of Norway’s websites for the latest updates and information.
