 Skilled jobseekers - repealed!

The rule on skilled jobseekers was repealed on 15 January 2013, and you can no longer get a residence permit as a skilled jobseeker. This also applies if you submitted your application before 15 January 2013.

If you are not subject to a visa requirement and have qualifications as a skilled worker, you can stay in Norway without a residence permit for six months to seek employment as a skilled worker.

Nationals of a European country do not need a visa to go to Norway or anywhere else in the European Union states.  However, Filipinos need visas to go to Norway.  Therefore, those who intend to look for jobs in Norway thru the Skilled Jobseekers visa must be eligible for other permits.
