Norway’s official websites abroad

Are you looking for work?

Labour immigrants provide Norwegian society with crucial expertise and help to alleviate Norway’s shortage of labour in a number of sectors.

You can find information on how you can apply for a job in Norway on the website of the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV). There is also a lot of practical information from the public authorities on the website New in Norway.

As a rule, foreign workers are required to have some form of residence permit. Read more about this on our information page on visas and residence permits.

Entering Norway
All foreign nationals travelling to Norway must have a valid travel document, and for the vast majority of people this means a valid passport. Nationals of certain countries must in addition have a valid visa before travelling to Norway. Foreign nationals who are required to have a visa are also obliged to have travel medical insurance. European nationals must bring their national European health insurance card in order to have the costs of any treatment they may need covered while travelling in Europe. It is recommended that all foreign nationals have travel insurance that is valid for the whole trip.
