    Good day everyone! I am new here and also at the start on the process of applying as a nurse in Norway..though I don't know how to start.I have stumbled upon a site here www.healthjobs.no which offers Norwegian language course without cost until you're hired...the agency will be the one to look for potential employers...can anyone of you share the process of application?Thanks a lot!



    Hi! I also saw the site you're referring to you. I have checked it already and started communicating with them. I'm am now waiting for the invoice of my pre ordered learning materials.They offer online language course. Are you interested with them also?Have you contacted them already?..

    I recently emailed UDI about my visa and I was saddened by the reply.

    Here's their reply:


    We refer to your e-mail dated 13th September 2013.

    Your application is still in process here at the UDI.

    The UDI has recently received a considerable number of applications from skilled workers who wish to study Norwegian, mainly from the Philippines. We have to investigate these cases more closely to ensure that the applications are in accordance with the rules whereby skilled workers can be granted permits for one year to learn Norwegian. This means that people who apply for this type of permit must expect to wait longer than what has previously been the case for this type of application. The oldest cases are currently more than eleven months old.

    Once we have processed the application, we will send the decision to you, via the Norwegian embassy.

    Please note that, it is not necessary for you to contact us again until you hear from the embassy.


    Best regards

    Hi,

    haven't emailed UDI again. I lodged my application at the embassy last April 30, 2013. Back then, processing time was only 4 months. Then it became 6, and then now, 11 months? Is this a joke? They're making us wait for almost 1-year just for the decision for the visa application?

    I feel really bad about this,

    Interesting enough, one of my batchmates was thinking about looking for a job in Norway and like the posting on Aug. 3 here, she also heard that the embassy is not really planning on issuing the visa any longer. My friend thinks it's either due to there's really no demand for PH nurses or that those taking the language courses are not communicating well with the patients or like in CA, there's been a rash of fraudulent documents being submitted.

    At this point, she's no longer planning to look into Norway unless the visa is a for sure thing.

    Yes, I agree, something does not smell right, the delays are getting longer and longer and the reasoning is not very good.

    Yes, I also know that there has already been a similar instance in the past wherein they stopped issuing a particular type of visa, I think it's the SKilled Workers' Visa, and what they did, for those who haven't gotten the decisions for their visa application, they just refunded the visa fee. Bad for those who have already been approved for visa but have not left the country back then, since their visas, too, were no longer accepted, and were just offered a refund instead.

    I'm just so saddened with the turn of events, but there must be a truth to this long processing times because i learned from an agency that some of their applicants who filed/ lodged their application as early as January 2013 have no results yet. I'm just hopeful that our application will not end up like the 'job seekers visa for skilled workers' before that when there was a sudden increase in application and a lot have reportedly abused the scheme they abolished it. I hope the long wait is worth it. The best of luck to all of us.
