UPDATE: New developments in the upcoming changes to Norwegian passport applications

Last month I posted about the upcoming changes to Norwegian passport applications in the U.S. Initially December 1st had been set as the date that it would no longer be possible to apply for a new passport through Honorary Consulates, including the one in Minneapolis.

Then, last night, I was informed that the date has changed. At least with regard to the Minneapolis Honorary Consulate. For those in the Midwest, the Honorary Consulate will still accept passport renewal applications until sometime in April 2010. I haven't been given an exact date, but this does buy Norwegian nationals at least another four months to start the process (though I strongly suggest that if
you have a passport that expires in the next couple of years start the process ASAP). Once I have a firm date in April I'll pass it along.

Also, has anyone heard if the other Honorary Consulates have been allowed the same extension? Leave a comment if you know.
