Do you need a visa to go to Svalbard?

If you're looking to see if you need a visa to go to Svalbard, the details below should help you with your quest.

Foreign Citizens do not need a visa to enter Svalbard as tourists, however you may need a visa for transit through Norway; this is called a Schengen Visa. Countries that have visa exemption agreements with Norway can stay for up to 90 days without one, however, those from countries not on the list will need to apply for one. Please take a look at the list on the following link for more information and check with your relevant Embassy (USA and UK details are below).

Visa exemption agreement information

All travellers must have a passport valid for at least 6 months with two pages free. Whilst we are happy to advise you on your visa requirements, please ensure these are organised well in advance of your travels as they are your responsibility.
