Hi, My name is Caitlin, I'm 22, and I just moved to Inder√ły from California in March. It's been a bit more difficult to make friends here than I anticipated. If there's anyone on here that's around my area and would like to get coffee or a drink hit me up! I would love to meet some new people! A bit about me - I studied art/photography and worked as a concert photographer back in LA for people like Pink, Butch Walker, Lit, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. I also love writing, music, drawing, running, and baseball.

Hello .... trying to find out if my boyfriend and I got married,would I be able to work in the EU? How long would it take to receive the papers to work? Would I have to be in Norway to get them or could they be processed if, for example, we got marrid in Italy? Websites or any info on this topic much appreciated.

Hi Ruby, I am an American married to a Norwegian myself, so I can try to help you through the process. Firstly we were married in the US ourselves, he came home to Norway and sent for me to come the following year (I did come for 3 months late the same year for the holiday as well), as I had to sell my home and make preparations. I could have easily come back with him had I not needed to take care of other things first. Now here is how we did it best....I came on a tourist visa on a oneway ticket, then we waited until 2 weeks before my visa was up to file all the needed papers for me to stay permanently...(please make sure all your paperwork is complete and all originals and copies neeeded are included so there are no delays), check the UDI site for all needed papers. So I came end of July and we filed mid October and I was able to stay during the process being we were already married. Now i am not sure about a marriage taken place anywhere other than your homeland or here in Norway, exactly how this process would be effected, this you would have to look into in depth. All of our paperwork was fully filled out and all documents included which were needed, so we had no hiccups in the process. I received my papers just after Christmas and had to make an appointment at customs in the politi to have my passport updated and have everything finalized. I then had to file again each year for the following 3 years (4 times total) before receiving my permanent residence status and it wasn't cheap. Last one cost even more than the others as well. I know that the laws have now changed and it's every two years now that you file and costs even more. You will be eligible for norskkurs (Norwegian language school) up to 3,000 hours over a 5 year period. It will bemandatory for you to do no less than 600 hours (550 regular and 50 hours samfunnsfag) to be eligible for permanent residency. Finding work will also be contingent upon your norsk abilities depending on where in Norway and what line of work. So don't be surprised if it takes a year or more before you are able to find work. I wish you both luck on your new life journey.

MrBlackie posted Aalesund? on the Norway forum:
Hi there, I'm potentially moving to Aalesund as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 small kids) to work. I'm looking at being a sole breadwinner initially, as a teacher. I'm not sure what a teacher earns in Norway, but I do know its expensive. My wife will hopefully find work (she is an accountant, but will do whatever she needs to do to bring home some of the bacon.) Is it possible to get by on the money I'm likely to earn? Also, is it possible to buy a home there? The idea being that we can save on rental, and earn some capital gain on the home. Hopefully, eventually putting down roots and staying. I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts. Regards
