Norwegian tourist website Scheels is no longer accepting online applications for its Scheels Visa.
The website was suspended Monday after a security breach.
The Scheels website says it is not accepting applications from the US and has been offline since Feb. 22.
Scheels said the breach affected about 300,000 users and could affect some of its other websites.
The site was taken down for several hours, but did not reveal the cause of the breach.
Schevels is an agency of Norway’s tourism ministry.
Norwegian officials say they are aware of the security breach and are investigating.
Scheelss said the website was offline from 2:00 a.m. until 2:20 a. m.
Monday, with no impact to online reservations.
A spokesperson for the company said the information was “incorrectly entered.”
The spokesperson said it was possible the information came from an account that is not part of the Scheels system.
It was not immediately clear if the information had been verified.
Norway is one of several countries that allow citizens of several other countries to visit the country on a visa.
It also has visa-free travel for the U.S. It has also been an area of friction between the two countries since President Donald Trump took office.
The U.K. and France, the two other nations that have similar Scheels rules, have said they will take similar steps to prevent Americans from visiting Norway.
