If you’re thinking of migrating to Norway and you’re not sure how to go about it, then you’ve come to the right post.
Norway is a country where people from different backgrounds coexist in harmony. The standard of living is considerably high and the government is concerned about the welfare of its people.
Migrating to Norway requires that you have a Visa. However, it’s important to know that there are different types of visa you can apply for when going about that. In this post, we’re taking a look at three Visa types:
- Student Visa
- Investor Visa
- Tourist Visa
Let’s dig a little deeper into these three.
You can migrate to Norway as a student. This is the easiest route actually but you’ll first need to have been granted admission into a Norwegian University or Higher Institute of Learning. Once you have a letter of admission, you can tender it to the Norwegian Immigration and Foreign Affairs Commission. As a bona fide student of a Norwegian University, you will be qualified to apply for a work permit that will allow you to make extra income by working for up to twenty hours a week.
One other way of effecting your migration to Norway is by applying as an investor. Every government in the world is open and accommodating to anyone who is willing to contribute to the development of its economy. This way, you’ll need to apply for an Investor Visa. For you to qualify for one, you’ll need to present a holistic investment plan with details of funding.
Now while this method may seem queer, it has been proven to work and is also not against the law. This method is split into two steps; first you apply to migrate to Norway as a tourist and thereafter apply for asylum. For this, you’ll need a tourist visa and upon getting to Norway, you can approach the security agency where every document you need to prepare an asylum file will be made available to you.
For this method, there’s preference for applicants from countries experiencing conflicts like Syria and Iraq.
