Permanent residency and citizenship packages

Our online Norwegian courses will help you on the path to permanent residence or citizenship.

Are you a skilled worker/an expat in Norway?

Are you currently working in Norway and want to apply for permanent residence or citizenship? With our Permanent residency packages you will get the training you need to meet the requirements of the UDI. For many, permanent residence or citizenship will provide greater security and stability, as you no longer need to apply for the temporary residence permit.

Our Norwegian online courses are flexible, and you can study when it suits you.

We will also give you important personal tutoring throughout the course. All our teachers are highly trained, with many years of experience. They are all very dedicated and take the time to follow up with each student and give significant feedback which will help you achieve your goals.

What’s included

We have two different course packages for permanent residency and citizenship. If you are a skilled worker from outside Schengen and Europe you are required to complete 250 hours of training. Workers who are from Schengen and Europe need to complete 300 hours.

Permanent Residency Package

6 months
  • 250 hours Norwegian
  • 50 hours social studies
  • Personal tutoring from a teacher

Permanent Residency Package

7 months
  • 300 hours Norwegian
  • 50 hours social studies
  • Personal tutoring from a teacher

During the course period of 6 or 7 months, you can study as much as you want. UDI approves maximum 48 hours per month for online courses in Norwegian, but you are of course free to study more than 48 hours although these hours will not be counted on the course certificate you get when the course is completed. If you haven’t reached the 250 hours within this 6 months course (or 300 in 7 months), you can simple extend the course period by buying the number of months you need to complete the required hours.

Approved by Kompetanse Norge and UDI

Our courses in the Permanent residency packages prepare you for the Norwegian test and the citizenship test. NoTe online school is approved by the UDI and Kompetanse Norge, which means that you can use the completed courses as documentation when you apply for permanent residence or citizenship in Norway via the UDI and the police.
