Unemployment benefit is partly a compensation for lost income. In order to qualify for unemployment benefit, your working hours must have been reduced by at least 50 per cent. You must also be an active job seeker and live in Norway.
Citizens from EEA countries who have had a Norwegian employment contract may apply for Norwegian unemployment benefit.
Employment status report
As a job seeker, you must submit an employment status report every 14 days to NAV. The report describes what you have done the past 14 days to find work. The status report can be submitted electronically via Nav.no.
