I am a US citizen living in Norway with a resident permit based on family reunion (my husband is Norwegian). I have been fortunate to have worked in Norway but my contract has finished. The job search in the Oslo area has been very difficult and therefore, I am considering going back to the US and searching for a job there while my husband stays in Norway. Can I be outside of Norway for several months and still maintain my residence permit? What, if any, are the restrictions?

Not criticising. Just wondering how it's possible to not know udi.no have the up to date answers on this

I guess it takes almost 2-3 years to shift from normal status to residence one. Online portals like aarz.pk are the best sources to check for any authentic information.
