The Vietnamese Embassy in Norway has introduced Vietnam’s unique traditional culture during the language and culture festival held in Norwegian cities in May and June, including Oslo capital.

The embassy showcased traditional handicrafts, costumes as well as publications in English introducing the country’s culture, festivals and cuisine and renowned tourist sites.

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