Easier to get work for EEA citizens in Norway

Citizens from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) from Oct. 1 no longer need a residence permit to take a job in Norway, writes Norway Post on its website.

All they need to do is to register with the police.

The new regulations apply to citizens from all EEA nations, except Romania and Bulgaria.

The new regulations are part of a new directive which will secure citizens from EU and EEA nations the right of free movement within the region.

EEA, that entered into force in 1994, unites the 27 EU Member States and the three EEA EFTA States (Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway) into an Internal Market governed by the same basic rules. These rules aim to enable goods, services, capital, and persons to move freely about the EEA in an open and competitive environment, a concept referred to as the four freedoms.
