Hello rajksantosh.

These articles on Accommodation in Norway may help. :)

Thank you,

first and foremost, you need your norwegian ID- which you can achieve in atleast 10 days after u enter norway and you register yourself with the tax administration.

next is to get a bank account. ( u cannot have anything without the nor id. )

then search for a place to stay, and most of the time they would need deposit money of 3 months.

You need to open a deposit account with the landlord( this account cannont be accessed at any point by anyone without each others consent)

and then you can move in.

So prepare to have enuf money. Oslo s expensive.

Hello Nancy_sharma,

Welcome to expat-blog :)

I suggest you take a look to our housing section: housing in Oslo.

If you have any other questions you are welcome to start a new thread on forum Oslo.


   My application for a job seekers visa in Norway is on going, There is one requirement that I need to submit and that is a tenancy agreement. How will I go about that? So once I enter into an agreement like let say a six month stay, do I need to pay the rental in full amount at once? Please advise.
Thank you
