I intend to travel to Oslo next month from India to present a paper at an academic conference. The University won't pay me for this. Given that Norway doesn't have a provision for Conference Visa, should I apply for a Business Visa under short-term Visitor's visa? Should I specify the purpose of travel as 'Business' or 'Other', given that I am attending an academic and not a business conference?
