    Goo day,
    If I invest in Norway 100 K Euro’s in a company, what happens to that money? Do I get interest on it? Do you just invest to get a 1-year residence, with a chance of a renewal? Will I and my wife be allowed to find work and work?

      Hello there. As a matter of fact, the minimum amount, which is 100 k, allows you to make an investment in Norway. You can either generate new jobs or invest in a company. That’s on you. However, you can get the interest depending on the invested amount. It’s ok to bring your family, but you should be able to support them financially. You can extend the resident permit 3 times, and after 3 years, you will obtain permanent residency. Good luck.

    What would be considered a reasonable amount for living expenses for a husband + wife + 1 year old daughter, for the sake of the required additional amount on the top tf the 100.000 EUR? Furthermore, does being fluent in Norsk facilitate anything in the process?
