Last updated: 19.04.2012 // Labour migration is an integral part of the development of Norwegian society. The Norwegian authorities are seeking to make it easier for qualified foreign workers to get a job in Norway.

Most foreign workers need a permit to work in Norway. Information on the rules and guidelines that apply to nationals from various countries as well as for the different types of work permits is found on the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration’s (UDI) website. The website also offers information on how to apply for permission to work and live in Norway.

Please note that special rules apply to EU/EEA/EFTA citizens.

More information on finding a job in Norway may be found on the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration’s (NAV) website.
