List of state visits made by King Harald V of Norway

Below is a complete list of state visits made by His Majesty King Harald V of Norway. Four state visits are usually made each year: two visits by King Harald and Queen Sonja to a foreign head of state and two visits by another head of state to Norway. The amount of state visits have increased greatly during the 1900s. King Haakon VII ruled for 52 years from 1905 and made a total of 13 state visits to foreign countries. King Harald V has ruled for 16 years and has already conducted 35 state visits. Today a state visit is accompanied by large trade delegations and is seen as an important venue to promote trade and other business relations as well as cultural and political ties between the two countries.
