Priority will be given to Norwegian travelers needing assistance and to urgent inquiries. Norwegian citizens are asked to please contact the Embassy by e-mail ([email protected]), alternatively by phone +63 (0) 2 5317 2700. In Singapore, the e-mail is [email protected]

For safety and health protocols, we kindly ask that visitors follow these guidelines:
