SOME TIPS FOR MOVING TO NORWAY | NORWAY GUIDE

A useful guide for expats and newcomers to help with your move to Norway:

NORWAY MOVING GUIDE | MOVING TO NORWAY FROM THE UK | REMOVALS TO NORWAY

In 2017 Norway was named the happiest place on earth by the World Happiness Report 2017. It regularly comes top in the Human Development Index and the Legatum Prosperity Index  places it at No.1 in its rankings. Factor in the glorious landscape, workplace gender equality, and second-to-none childcare and education rankings, and it’s small wonder that more and more Brits are considering working and living in Norway.

If you’re thinking of moving to Norway to start a new life with your family, or if you’re relocating there for work, the logistics are complex. Schepens has been moving families to Scandanavia for over 100 years now, so here’s our step-by-step guide for successful planning when making the move from the UK to Norway.


1. Entry Requirements and Visa

So long as you have a British passport that describes you as a British Citizen, you can stay in Norway for up to 3 months without a visa. Thereafter you will need to appy for a Residence Permit. The application process is facilitated via the UDI application portal which give full details of all the documentation you’ll need for this process.

2. Opening a Bank Account in Norway

One of the first things you’ll need to do is open a bank account with one of Norway’s major banks such as Norges bank, Nordea or DNB ASA. If you’re planning to stay in Norway longer than 6 months you’ll need a Norwegian National Insurance number (ID number). These are  issued by your local tax assessment office.

3. Finding a Job in Norway

You’ll need to have a job in order to be granted residency. The jobs market is highly competitive and expats recommend that job-seekers learn Norwegian as employers prefer hiring people who know the language. Most jobs in Norway are advertised online, and the NAV job database is the most comprehensive listing.

4. Somewhere to Live

Expats recommend renting for your first year in Norway, so that you can take your time deciding where you want to put down roots. Cities offer the most choice, but tend to be more expensive. Rental deposits tend to be steep; three months rent is the normal deposit. It’s also worth checking what’s covered in rental as you’ll normally need to factor in utilities on top of what you pay.

5. Healthcare in Norway

Healthcare is high quality and affordable in Norway. It’s free for young people under the age of 16. In all other cases medical, dental and optician treatments incurs a reasonable fee for all treatment, until a financial threshold is reached, at which point treatment costs are covered by public insurance. Being registered with a GP is the gateway to all healthcare services, so finding one needs to be a priority when you arrive.

6. Education in Norway

Norway’s education system is highly regarded and young people are required to attend between the ages 6-16. Public education is free and all the classes are delivered in Norwegian. There are also a number of international schools operating in Norway. They’re expensive but they offer a UK curriculum and classes are taught in English.

7. The Cost of Living

Norway tops the charts when it comes to the cost of living. In 2018 it is one of the most expensive place in the world to live. The high prices are offset by salaries but it’s worth researching the cost of staples, utilities, and commodities before you arrive, in order to be able to make informed decisions about the amount you need to earn earn in order to live comfortably.

Working With an Experienced Removals Partner

Many of our clients are managing their first European removal, and the sheer logistical complexity can feel overwhelming. That’s why we appoint a dedicated Move Co-ordinator to all our movers. This is someone with detailed knowledge of their destination and extensive experience of European removals.

MOVING TO NORWAY AFTER BREXIT | NORWAY REMOVALS FROM UK

Moving to Norway after brexit

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union will have a huge impact on its citizens. One of the biggest changes is how easily people can move from the UK to other countries. That’s because many European countries have tighter restrictions on migrants coming from non-EU countries.

People moving to Norway after brexit may find that the requirements for entry or residency are more stringent. The precise details of how migration to Norway will change after Brexit are still being negotiated. However, there may be additional restrictions on how long you can stay in Norway and the things you can do while living in Norway, like working, studying, and visiting public hospitals.

This guide will discuss the current process of moving to Norway and how it may change after Brexit.

PLEASE CALL 01794 323558 FOR YOUR FREE NO OBLIGATION QUOTE ON REMOVALS TO NORWAY!

ENTRY AND RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR NORWAY

Currently, British citizens and British subjects do not require a visa to enter Norway. You will only need a valid British passport when entering or exiting the country. However, it is important to check that your passport is valid for the length of time that you will be staying in Norway.

Although you don’t need a visa to enter the country, you must register yourself on arrival if you plan to reside in Norway. This can be done at one of the service centres in Oslo, Stavanger and Kirkenes. You can read more about the entry requirements at the Norwegian Department of Immigration website.

Anyone from a county that is in the European Economic Area (EEA) can work, study, or start a business in Norway for up to 6 months without a residency permit. However, as the UK will be leaving the EEA as a part of Brexit, this situation is likely to change. Negotiations are still ongoing, but this 6 month period will probably be removed or dramatically shortened.

If you are going to stay in Norway for longer than 6 months, you will require a residency permit. This allows you to obtain a Norwegian personal number, which is used for everything from renting a home to obtaining social services. Norway has both temporary and permanent residency permits. You can only apply for permanent residency after living in the country for at least 3 years (5 years for some countries).

When obtaining your permit, you will need to supply the authorities with some proof of identity, which may include:

  • Your passport or national ID card showing your citizenship and validity.
  • Copy of marriage certificate or equivalent if you are married
  • Proof of residence, rent or purchase certificate for housing
  • Copy of birth certificate or birth certificate where the parents name appears for accompanying children

Obtaining permanent residency in Norway can be a time consuming process, so it is worth applying as early as possible.


FINDING A JOB

Any EU or EEA citizens have the right to work or look for work in Norway for 6 months, after which time you will require a residency permit. After Brexit, this is expected to change and permits may be required to enter the country to begin working. These details are still being negotiated and may change in the future. If you have received permission to work in Norway, the best places to look for work include:

HEALTHCARE

Currently, UK nationals can receive health care during temporary visits to Norway if they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). If you are living and working in Norway for a longer period, you will have to join the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme (NIS). This will allow you to gain access to the low cost healthcare via Norway’s public healthcare system.
