Norwegian National Insurance Scheme

When you come to Norway to work you will usually become member of the mandatory Norwegian National Insurance Scheme from your first day of work. EEA citizens are obliged to pay National Insurance contributions when working on board Norwegian vessels. However, exceptions may apply due to bilateral agreements between Norway and other countries. You can be exempted if you work on board a foreign-flagged vessel.

If you work onshore for a foreign employer, you may be allowed to maintain membership of the National Insurance Scheme in your home country. If so, you may be exempted in Norway.
