Norwegian Visas

Europe's most northerly country, Norway is renowned for its unspoilt countryside, majestic mountain scenery and dramatic fjord coastline. Partly due to the country's offshore oil and gas deposits – oil revenue alone is £21bn annually – Norway's citizens enjoy one of the world's highest standards of living. 

Thanks to the Gulf stream, Norway's often mild and humid climate can sometimes be warmer than one might anticipate. Summer temperatures can hit 30 degrees Celsius, whilst the winter freeze can produce readings of minus 20-30 degrees.

Unemployment is low in Norway, and labour demands vary according to the sector. Though knowledge of the Norwegian language is a prerequisite for some jobs, English speakers are accepted in the construction, fishing, farming and hotel trades, and many companies – especially those in the petroleum sector – have adopted English as their corporate language.  

Provided they have a valid passport or ID card, citizens from EEA member states, and likewise their family members, have the right to live in Norway for up to three months. Norway's housing costs have risen in recent times, especially in the larger urban areas, but rural housing costs are usually more reasonable.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
