According to Phillippine authorities Norway has declared itself open to Filipino professionals from the fields of engineering and information technology seeking to land a job there, Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) Secretary Marianito Roque said.
For the Norway jobs, Roque said Filipinos can apply for a job seekers’ visa, go to Norway, and directly apply there.
”They allow people to go there as job seekers,” Roque told reporters, stressing that this was a good set-up because it would allow those looking for employment to choose the best workplace when they are actually in Norway. Roque said he recently came to know of the policy from the Norwegian embassy. He added that Norway did not give the number of Filipino workers in needed for IT professionals and engineers.
