As a foreigner living in Stavanger, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Stavanger if they have access to public healthcare in Stavanger. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"As a foreigner living in Stavanger, you will have access to public healthcare, provided you are a legal resident and have registered with the National Registry. The Norwegian healthcare system is known for its high-quality services and well-trained medical professionals. Public healthcare in Norway is funded through taxes, and residents have access to a wide range of services, including general practitioners, specialists, hospitals, and emergency care. However, you may experience longer waiting times for non-urgent treatments and appointments. It is essential to obtain a general practitioner (fastlege) who will be your primary point of contact for healthcare services and referrals to specialists. Overall, the public healthcare system in Stavanger is reliable and efficient, ensuring that you receive the necessary care and treatment during your stay in Norway," explained one expat living in Stavanger, Norway.
