Norwegian-Armenians are Armenians living in Norway. The number of Armenians is estimated between 1,000 and 2,000 and they come mainly from countries in the Middle East. Recently Norway is seeing some influx from Armenia as well. Most Norwegian Armenians live in the capital Oslo.

Most Armenians belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church under the jurisdiction of the See of Holy Echmiadzin. There is a smaller number belonging to the Armenian Catholic Church.
