What do I need to know before moving to Oslo?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Oslo, they said...

"Oslo is the capital of Norway and is known for its stunning natural beauty and vibrant culture. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Oslo is high, so it is important to budget accordingly. It is also important to note that the weather in Oslo can be quite cold and wet, so warm clothing and waterproof gear are essential. Additionally, the language spoken in Oslo is Norwegian, so it is beneficial to learn some basic phrases before moving. Finally, it is important to research the visa requirements for Norway before moving, as different types of visas may be required depending on the length of stay," explained one expat living in Oslo, Norway.

"Make sure you choose a reputable company to move your stuff overseas who know how to handle all of the documents- the customs people here hold shipments for crazy amounts of time. Choose a neighborhood close to public transport. It is pricier but well worth not having to walk 20 minutes very 2 in the winter. Be open minded about flats. I have yet to see a place with more than 1 bath and double vanities don't exist. The fridges are small- overall things are smaller and it's important not to let it bother you," said another expat in Oslo, Norway.
