Immigration to Norway is strictly regulated.

If you wish to work or study in Norway, you must apply for the relevant permit(s) before you travel to Norway.

Persons who do not qualify for asylum or other permits in Norway, and whose applications are denied, must return to their country of origin or country of habitual residence. If you do not leave voluntarily, you will be returned by force.
