If you are planning to work in Norway, it is crucial to understand the visa application process. The specific requirements may vary depending on your nationality and the nature of your employment. Here is a general outline of the visa process:

·       Work Visa: To obtain a work visa, you will typically need a job offer from a Norwegian employer. The employer must apply on your behalf to the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI). The UDI will review the application and issue a work permit if all requirements are met.

·       Residence Permit: Once you have been granted a work visa, you will also need to apply for a residence permit. This permit allows you to live and work in Norway for an extended period. The application is processed by the UDI.

·       Schengen Visa: If you are a citizen of a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and plan to stay in Norway for less than 90 days, you may need to apply for a Schengen visa. This visa allows you to travel within the Schengen area, which includes Norway.
