Norway Immigration Services

​• Norway's immigration system provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Norway is a member of the Schengen Area. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.
• Business visitors to Norway typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area limits stays for visitors to 90 days in a 180-day period.
• The main work authorization categories are the Residence and Work Permit for Service Providers, suitable for highly skilled staff on temporary assignment to a Norwegian subsidiary or client, available in two-year increments up to a total stay of six years; and the Residence and Work Permit for Skilled Workers, suitable for highly skilled staff locally hired by a Norwegian company, available in three-year increments with no limit on total stay.
