The Norwegian Honorary Consulate in Illinois

The Norwegian Honorary Consulate in Illinois is located in Chicago, Illinois and assists those in the surrounding areas. The Honorary Consulate also collaborates with other Consulates or the Embassy as needed. We help facilitate the development of commercial, economic, cultural, scientific, and educational relations between Norway and the state of Illinois.

The current Honorary Consul is Susan Meyer. There are no general office hours, but the Honorary Consul can be reached by email or telephone and will see people by appointment.


  • Provide consular assistance such as notary services, information, emergency assistance, and voting assistance
  • Provide information about Norway and Norwegian-American relations 
  • Provide information about travel to Norway. During normal times, US citizens do not need a visa to travel in Norway for short-term tourist visits (maximum 90 days). Please note that you must have a passport which is valid for at least three months longer than the date you plan to leave Norway.

Please note: The Honorary Consulate cannot process VISA Applications. Those must be processed via the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration - please see: Paperwork is submitted to VFS Global located in a different office in Chicago. Please see:

We cannot accept passport applications or renewals. Those need to be submitted to the Embassy in Washington, DC, or the Consulates General in New York or San Francisco, CA (the Consulate General Office in Houston closed in the summer of 2023).
