Turkey gives Norwegians 'temporary' permission to enter with national ID cards

Norwegian citizens will be allowed to enter Turkey with just their national identity cards for a “temporary” period, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

The decision has been taken “to enable Norwegian citizens to visit Turkey during the 2022 tourism season,” ministry spokesman Tanju Bilgic said in a statement.

The arrangement has been made “upon the request of the Turkish tourism sector” because “Norwegian citizens are unable to renew their passports due to the ongoing global chip crisis,” the statement said.

“Within the framework of this temporary arrangement, Norwegian citizens will be allowed to travel to Turkey with their biometric ID cards, containing their personal information, for a temporary period of six and a half months,” it added.

The spokesman also clarified that “no agreements were signed” during Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huitfeldt’s visit to Turkey this week.
