Norway Eases Path to Permanent Residence: Financial Support Requirement Lifted

Norway has implemented new measures to simplify the process for foreigners to obtain permanent residence, reducing the requirement period to just three years.

Effective as of April 18, the country has removed the prerequisite of financial support previously necessary to secure a permanent residence permit.

Under previous regulations, individuals aged 18 to 67 had to demonstrate a stable income and refrain from receiving government financial aid to qualify for permanent residency. However, recent amendments have lifted the ban on receiving financial assistance while still requiring a stable income as a condition.

A permanent residence permit allows individuals to live and work in Norway indefinitely. To be eligible, applicants must hold a valid residence permit in Norway for at least three years and meet additional criteria.

Upon approval, recipients will receive a resident card as proof of their permanent resident status, replacing the previous practice of placing stickers in passports.

Approved sources of income to meet financial requirements include employment, business earnings, pension payments, loans, education grants, and introductory benefits. Furthermore, financial aid is available for individuals facing financial hardship during their stay in Norway.

This initiative aims to streamline the immigration process and create a more welcoming environment for foreign nationals looking to establish Norway as their permanent home.
