    Questions About Norway

    If you as a non-Norwegian have questions about Norway and/or Norwegians you can ask them here. Me or other Norwegians in this Forum will get you the answers.

    Information here:
    http://www.skatteetaten.no/upload/Br..._in_Norway.pdf


    If you are going to stay for more than 3 months you normally need to apply for a workpermit or greencard. In some cases you also need to apply for a visa to travel into Norway.

    What do I need to apply for a visa to Norway?
    A passport that is valid for 90 days beyond the time period which you are requesting a visa for.
    Enough money for your travel to Norway and for your entire stay in Norway.
    Americans dont need to apply for a visa if they are staying less than 90 days inside the Schengen-area


    Where can I apply for a visa to Norway?
    To your nearest Norwegian foreign service mission (see the list below).

    Here is a list of Norwegian Embassies around the world. This is not a complete list, but hopefully a helpful starting point. Contact the Norwegian Embassy in your country for services regarding your move to Norway, getting visas to Norway and other consular services.

    Thank you. I ahve already had the pleasure of traveling to Norway several times, but I didn't know for sure the conditions for a work permit.

    There was a article in Norwegian news recently that told that Norwegian school-books have much more about Sweden than their books about us. The article told that this was some kind of "big brother"-thing, as Sweden always in the past has been much larger and powerful than us.
    Swedes and Norwegians have jokes about each other, but its always friendly and not foul-hearted.
    I think Swedes and Norwegians feel a strong bond since we have been, and still are very close. Some Norwegians do not feel happy about the areas Sweden stole from us, like for example Øst-Trøndelag But generally it dosnt go very deep.
    Alot of Swedes work in Norway since they earn a higher pay here than in their homecountry, and they are more than welcome to come here.
    Some Norwegians travel to Sweden for skiing in the wintertime and all-year-around Norwegians go to Sweden to shop for cheaper food, tobacco and alcohol. Here these trips are called "harrytur".

    While Sweden usually have been neutral in war, Swedish politicians have said they would come to our aid if we are attacked. I think our two peoples are very close both culturally, linquisticly and in other ways

    Which is the best Norwegian dairy you would recommend? What about Norwegian fish? I love Jarlsberg cheese and smoked salmon.

    I believe that is a very broad question. Perhaps you should help Alfadir and be more specific. Are you interested in musical customs, folk dances, cuisine, social or religious cusoms (like weddings, funerals)?
