Recruiting from outside the EU/EEA

NAV does not actively recruit labour from countries outside the EU/EEA other than for special projects.

Job seekers from countries outside the EU/EEA, who are legally resident in Norway, can visit their local NAV office and be matched to vacant positions registered with NAV and put in touch with relevant potential employers.

This assistance is only provided in connection with procuring potential work and NAV does not as this stage make assessments in relation to the rules for work permits.
