Hi Quynh,

No, Yet I did not get any job at Norway. Till I am in Bangladesh & doing job here. I am looking some  one to help me like a friend to find a job in Norway & arrange a VISA for me.


Sincerely yours


Friends cannot arrange visas for you. Only employers can do that. Unless you have qualifications that are needed for visas then you will not have any luck getting into Norway.

Hi! I'm Francis, currently residing in Nigeria. Hoping to move soon, God willing to Norway, Stavanger to be precise for studies. Anyone in the house who could give me an insight on what to expect and other experiences? Thanks!

I don't regard myself as an expat since I have lived in norway since I was a child.  I just signed up because I like reading stories and meeting people from my country of origin.  I am still a student, born Zambia but namibian by blood.

Hey MK!

I've been hitting those walls all month. I'm in the same situation as you, dating a Norwegian but don't want to HAVE to get married to stay here. I did meet a gal from New York last week who got an Aupair visa, so that's an option. Anyone with any additional tips, lemme know!

Hey, I'm Franco-Kenyan, currently living in France (Montpellier) and moving to Norway in August, When you move to Oslo it would be great to meet with fellow foreigners in Norway !

Hello.. im jennifer. I am a nurse by profession but I am practicing as a teacher.
I am a registered nurse and a licensed teacher. I am currently a public secondary school teacher.
I am actually contemplating of moving to norway particularly in Oslo.
I am a little bit reluctant though because I do not have any friends or relatives in Norway but I am willing to take the risks.
I plan on visiting Norway while looking for a probability of finding a job as a teacher particularly as a special education teacher as I have a master's degree in special education.
Hoping that anyone out there can shed a light as to whether I will be doing the right thing of moving my career to a higher level.

Hello my name is Kamal,
I am planning to move to norway to live with my wife there. She is a native Norwegian citizen. She cant invite me to Norway as she dont have the income criteria specified by UDI. I have been to norway once couple of years ago for 3 months and since then I have been doing jobs as a Snr. PHP Web Developer in my homeland. I have been looking for a job in my related field in websites but it seems like its hard to get a job not knowing norwegian language. I was thinking of applying for job seekers visa to get there and in some threads of this blog I found its rather disappointing. I dont have a clue what to do. I would be very glad if anyone can show me the way.



I am actually a Norwegian, recently returned after some years abroad. Settling in and looking for new friends
