Living in Norway

Whether you are planning a move to Norway, just arrived, or have lived here for years, we hope you will find something in these pages to help make your life easier and enable you to more fully enjoy the rich and varied experiences of living in Norway and Oslo, specifically.

These pages are intended to serve as a reference. We have tried to include answers to common questions and provide valuable resources. One thing you can count on is change, change, change! Everything from legal regulations, policies and practices, to website and e-mail addresses to phone and fax numbers. While every effort is made to keep these pages up to date, we still recommend that you call or e-mail ahead to ensure the information is still accurate. Let us know if you come across inaccurate information and we will update it immediately.

While living in Oslo can be exciting, intimidating, and even scary, Oslo has much to offer. We hope you will find your own special niche here and come to enjoy the uniqueness of Oslo -- maybe even someday call it "home."
