If you’re a citizen of an EU/EEA country, there are many ways to work in Norway.
But, if you want to work here, you’ll need the correct visa.
Several different types of visas are available for those wishing to come to Norway for employment purposes; each has its requirements and benefits.
Who can apply for a Norway Work Visa?
Before you apply for your Norway Work Visa, there are some things to consider.
- You must be a country citizen with a visa agreement with Norway.
- You must have a job offer and a valid work permit.
- You must have a valid passport(s).
You need to provide proof that you can support yourself while working in Norway (at least $1,100 per month). If this amount seems high, consider joining one of our partner programs with employers who offer flexible compensation plans or salary supplements. This will help reduce living costs while providing valuable experience working abroad!
What documents do I need to apply for a Norway Work Visa?
You’ll need to submit the following documents to apply for a Norway Work Visa:
- A valid passport that’s at least six months old
- A copy of your CV (curriculum vitae) and degree certificate.
- A copy of your transcripts from all universities where you studied, including proof that you graduated from those institutions
- Letters from employers and educational institutions support your application.
How long is the process?
Getting a Norway work visa usually takes a few months, but it can take up to 3 months if you are applying in Norway.
If you’re applying outside of Norway, the processing time will be between 6 and 9 months.
If you are applying with your employer, they should prepare your documents before submitting them to the embassy or consulate in your home country (the country where they issued their license).
In this case, it will only take about one month for approval from Norwegian authorities.
How long will my Norway Work Visas be valid?
Your Norway Work Visa will be valid for the same period as your employment contract.
If you are working for a company with an employment contract, the company should be able to tell you when it expires.
Is it possible to extend my work visa in Norway?
You can extend your work visas in Norway if you meet the requirements.
You have a good reason to do so.
Your family member is living in Norway and needs help with their job or studies, or they’re married to an EU/EEA national who has been granted permanent residence rights (which means they will also be able to move between EU countries).
Can I bring my family to live with me in Norway while I work?
You can bring your family to live with you in Norway while you work. If they are under 18 years of age, they must be sponsored by the employee who will apply for a work visa.
The family member must have a clean criminal record, a valid passport, and a valid visa (if required).
Is there a quota on the number of visas that are granted?
The Norwegian government sets the quota for Norway work visas.
It’s based on the number of jobs available in Norway and not on how many people want to work there.
The quota has been raised three times since 2013, so it will also be different next year.
For example, in 2018, there were 675 approved applications for permanent residence and work permits, but this number increased to 760 per month from January-June 2019.
To work in Norway, you must have the correct visa, and you can only get this if you qualify.
You can apply for a work visa if you are an EU national or any other nationality with a valid Norway visa.
You must meet all the following requirements:
- You must have an employment contract with your employer and be paid by them. If it’s not part of your job description and salary to work in Norway, then don’t bother!
Your employer must prove they have hired someone from within their workforce (or can hire outside workers). This is called “Selection”. You should also be given proof about what kind of work experience/skillset you have so as not to waste time training someone new – this will help both parties save money on training costs later on down the line when things aren’t going so well!
The Last Word
In conclusion, if you want to come and work in Norway but don’t know how to get a visa, then it’s important to remember that many options are available.
