Schengen/Entry Visa

Many foreign citizens need a visa to travel to Norway. The Schengen states have joint guidelines on how to process visa applications. The purpose of the stay in Norway will determine which visa to apply for. We can assist with Schengen (tourist and business) visas to Norway.

Residence/Work Permits for NON-EU Nationals

Immigration forms the foundation of employee mobility and global recruitment. Sending employees to Norway quickly, legally and economically is a challenge to any HR professional. It calls for individual handling in the pre-move stage and knowledge about the immigration formalities and procedures in the welcoming country. We advise, identify and collect supporting documentation, review and track the application with the Immigration authorities. The employee and family are looked after and corporate interests are represented in the best possible way by our experienced team.

Residence permits are required for all non-EU nationals living and working in Norway. The term ‘work permit’ has been replaced by – and is included in – the residence permit. Norway is part of the Schengen state cooperation, but is not a member of the European Union. The Norwegian Immigration Act, Regulations and Policies are complex, and procedures and documentation very strict. Originally verified documents and certificates must be translated to English and authorized.

Local Registration for EU Nationals

EU Nationals have the right to live and work in Norway. It is mandatory to be registered with the Immigration Authorities within 3 months of arrival, obtaining a registration certificate in the process.

Business Visa

Relocation AS offers a smooth and simplified process for your assignees to obtain business visas for specific travel needs, globally, from Norway.

With our extensive knowledge, we can ensure that your application has everything it requires for a successful outcome.

Newborn Registrations

If you are a foreign citizen living in Norway and have given birth here, it is necessary to apply for a residence permit (NON-EU nationals) or to obtain a registration certificate (EU nationals) for your newborn. We can assist with this, as well as, applying for a birth certificate and passport for your newborn.

Public Registration

The immigration authorities require personal appearance upon arrival in Norway. Our team can escort the employees and their families to ensure that all formalities are met. Being able to trust in this additional safety is valued by employees and companies alike. Our team eases an otherwise complicated process.

The doorway to Norwegian society for foreigners is through a Norwegian Personal number which is issued by the local tax office. The personal number is the key to open a bank account, pay taxes and gain access to public health services. The first encounter with Norwegian bureaucracy can be very frustrating and time-consuming.

Once the mandatory registrations are over, you will find Norway is a technologically advanced society. Online banking services are very modern and accessible for foreigners as many banks provide internet banking in English. Our team members can take you through every step and add safety to this process.

Renewal of Residence/Work Permits

Residence permits are issued for a period of 1 to 3 years. Our team can assist with renewals of residence/work permits, ensuring that the process is quick and efficient. The process of renewal should be started at least 3 months before the current permits expire.
