The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Norway

Are you an expat working and living in Norway? Or are you preparing to move soon to Oslo, Tromsø or any other of the Norwegian international hotspots?

Expat life in Norway has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like the "Stor-Oslo-regionen" to the south, learning how Norwegian people celebrate Grunnlovsdagen, up to tasting Norway’s favorite dishes such as lutefisk.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Norway. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Sweden to living in Mexico.

Working and living in Norway – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Norway requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Norwegian expat life. Living abroad in Norway raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Norway?ʺ, ʺWhat does "Janteloven" mean?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Oslo should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Norwegian municipality in Bergen?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Norway is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Norway aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Norway. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from sports and leisure, to local infrastructure or health-care, up to travel & accommodation. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺCan anybody help me find an English-speaking counselling service in Stavanger?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Norway, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from living in Brazil to living in New Zealand.
