Why Norway?

For expats who value equality over exceptionalism, Norway is the place to be. Whether taking a scenic train ride of or skiing the Scandinavian Mountains, a national emphasis on conservation ensures natural and city spaces stay pristine for all. Norwegians themselves embrace outside cultures and LGBTQIA folks. This openness also extends to education and healthcare systems, both readily available to all, while widespread English use makes integration easier. Equality comes with a higher cost of living here, particularly in food and housing. Winters are intense affairs with heavy snowfall, especially in the north. Norwegian culture encourages a slower pace of life, so American hustle culture takes a back seat here. If you’re ready to embrace work-life balance among the stunning fjords, consider Norway as your immigration destination.
