    1. Photocopy of passport
    2. BSN Diploma
    3. TOR
    4. RLE
    5. Recommendation letter from the College of Nursing (I don't know if this doc is still needed --I included it anyway-- as a proof of my BSN degree)

    Hi Richelle, thank you so much again for answering my questions, im sorry for asking you a lot of questions and asking you again this time.

    birth certificate- is this the one on security paper?
    certification of registration as a nurse- is this the diploma released by prc/BON?


    someone told me that these documents are also needed:

    1. certification of completion- is this the same with certification of registration as a nurse, diploma released by prc/Bon or the certification of passing which can be requested at prc

    2. certification of board rating- is this the one mailed by the prc or the one you requested at prc?
    have you also sent these two documents?

    thank you so much for helping me, i hope you can enlighten me. God bless Richelle!
    its alright..
    birth certificate nso
    certificate of registration the one that looks like diploma that we can get at prc
    board rating the one send by prc....

    Hello there. I'm also waiting for the result of my safh application that I sent last Aug. 19.

    You can click on to this site http://www.norway.ph/embassy/visainf...s/specialists/ for the requirements when you apply for a visa or after you get your authorisation or license.

    For those who cannot access the site, here are the supporting docs:

    1. Cover Letter (to be printed from the Application Portal after booking an appointment)

    2. One Passport size picture glued on to the Cover Letter (NB: No staples). The picture must be less than six months old, have a white background and must not be airbrushed or 'Photoshopped'. For more information click here

    3. Valid passport (plus one copy). The passport must be valid for at least two months after the period applied for.

    4. Original proof of qualifications (diploma, certificates of training and PRC ID, if any, plus one copy)
    5. Documentation of professional experience (plus one copy), if applicable

    6. CV

    7. Information about housing (e.g. intention on renting accommodation, rental contract, etc)

    8. Proof of subsistence: Sufficient funds for the intended period of stay in Norway. This must correspond to salary grade 1 in the pay scale for Norwegian state employees. As of 1st May 2011, this corresponds to NOK 107 450 (NOK 17 909 pr month).

    To document the above, please submit bank statements for the last six months. The bank statement must be in the applicant's name. An affidavit showing that the applicant has access to someone else's account is not considered sufficient. Please note that joint accounts and Time Deposit Accounts are not accepted.

    (Third party guarantees (UDI Guarantee Form for Residence) will only be accepted in exceptional cases).

    9. A declaration stating that the applicant understands and is prepared to submit Travel Medical Insurance according to the requirements stated below, if the application is approved.

    If the application is approved (the applicant will be informed of this by the Embassy), the applicant must submit Travel Medical Insurance before the visa can be issued.

    The Travel Medical Insurance must cover expenses incurred at a medical care facility for necessary and acute medical treatment, and for medical repatriation services related to patient transfer. The insurance shall be valid for all the Schengen countries wtih minimum coverage of EUR 30, 000. The insurance shall be valid for the period you are applying for a residence permit. The insurance must be bought from one of the Insurance Companies that are accredited by the Schengen Group in Manila.

    10. Application fee: NOK 1100,- Payable online by VISA or MasterCard on the Application Portal.



    1 NOK (norwegian Kroner) is equivalent to 8 PHP (Philippine Peso). You should have an evidence fund or "show money" of 107 450 NOK or roughly around 860,000 PHP in your bank account for 6 mos. before you apply. However, I just heard from 1 agent that they (the embassy) will accept even if its only for 2 mos. But just to make sure, (and since they are becoming stricter) just follow what is indicated in their website.

    Goodluck to all of us.

    Hello Richelle. I'm not sure abt no. 7. But as what is stated in the given example--- intention on renting accommodation, rental contract, etc -- most probably in Norway. I'll get back to you on this. In no. 8, according to the link I provided, " Applicants with a written offer of employment may also apply for an Entry Visa for Specialists. With this type of application, the processing time is shorter and there is no requirement for subsistence." -- You should provide them with an official (written) contract (offer of employment in your specialist field). So, you must have an offer of employment from a hospital/employer.

    You're welcome. Again, those supporting docs should be photocopied and notarized.
