Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg will pay an official visit to Vietnam from April 16-18, announced the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on April 12.

The visit will be made at an invitation of Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung.

Vietnam and Norway established diplomatic ties on November 25, 1971. In late 2014, Vietnam offered visa exemption to Norwegian visitors so that they are allowed to enter and stay in Vietnam for up to 15 days without visas regardless of passport types and purpose of visit.-VNA
