    So you also have the information about housing already? I could show you my study plan. Just add me on facebook, KhenThoi.


    I guess we're on the same boat. I was also a recent passer of the board exams last July. I also don't have any hospital experience yet. I guess it wouldn't matter since we still have to study their language first. What visa are you trying to apply for? Jobseeker or Student Visa?

    GOOD thing I was able to browse website regarding jobs in norway. My friend told me that norway needs a volume of nurses. problem is i am clueless of the process as in I will start from scratch. Hope you can guide me and by the way my question is what are the requirements and is there a need of an agency??? how about the language I read that you must learn there language first. also how much money will I spend? thanks much!

    hi spicyallen!

    You don't need the help of an agency. In fact, the embassy does not encourage that. As for the requirements, check this website Norway - the official site in the Philippines. Hope that helps.

    I inquired in this office who gives assistance and you have to apply for there visa which allow you to stay there for one year and look for a job and learn there language.I was told to prepare PRC card,PRc certificate,birth certificate,school credentials like diploma,RLE,OTR,all authenticated and a bank cert of have to pass these documents to there embassy and get interviewed and pass the interview.You have to pay the visa fee of 19k online thru credit card and if you recieve the invoice you pay again thru net the SAFP or PRC Norway for 10k.I was asked to pay 60k for the assistance fee from assisting you with fixing all your documents,mock interview,some materials for learning the norwegian language,passing job applications in norway,assistance in looking for accomodations,airline etc.The fare,pocketmoney and rents will be shouldered by you..So maybe you will spending more than 200k just to get there.I talked to a guy who recieved all the documents he needed to go to Norway and he said he got all his documents in less that 6 months.
