Visa & permits

Possible requirements pertaining to visas and permits must be checked and followed up upon well in advance of your planned arrival in Norway. These preparations lay the ground for a smooth and efficient relocation experience. If you bring family, each member must be registered individually with the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI), but you can use the same account in the UDI application portal.
