  1. Hello Karen,
    Good day to you!
    I have my job offer in Hudiksvall. Don’t have visa yet just an offer. Aside from working visa you’ve mention the OEC. Can you please tell me more about the OEC and how to get it? 4 months? Omg!
    Hope you could help me.

  5. Hi! Did you have your employment contract authenticated in Philippine embassy? My employer mentioned na required daw po yun. Paano po nangyari sa side nyo?

    1. Hi, Jeca! My employment contract was authenticated in the Philippine Embassy in Norway. They sent the original contract with signatures and then my employer sent it back to me.

  7. Wow! Ang hirap mag work na ibang lahi ang mga kasama mo. Pero, nag hahanap rin ako ng work abroad. Nakakalungkot lang na wala ako mahanap. 🙁

  9. Hello Karen,

    I have a question regarding the employment contract authentication. Does the employer need to be present in Philippine Embassy in Norway to have the contract authenticated? It seems to much hassle for the employer.

    1. Hi! Your employer does not need to be present at the Philippine Embassy in Norway. They can just send the documents by post. But, as far as I know, you do not need to authenticate your contract (red ribbon) for documents issued in Norway, Iceland, and Sweden. You can have it apostillized instead. You can refer to this info from the Philippine Embassy in Norway: https://www.philembassy.no/consular-services/authentication-notarials-and-legalization

      I hope this helps! 🙂

    2. Hi Mark,
      Were you able to have your contract authenticated? I have the same concern.

      Hi Karen,
      I think the link is only for documents other than employment contracts.

      1. Hi!
        If the document is issued in Norway, Iceland, and Sweden, then the apostille should be accepted. Since “Beginning 15 June 2019, we will no longer physically affix red satin ribbons to documents brought to the Embassy for consularization, or more commonly known as “red ribbon”. ”

        But it maybe still depends on which country… also if POLO is available, it may be a different process as well.

  11. Such good insight! It is a bit of a bucket list item for me to live in London for a year or two….I have always wondered what it would be like to move around the world for work!

    1. It would be nice to try to live abroad and experience different culture too. I am very much surprised with the work environment here in Sweden. I hope you could live in London soon. 🙂

  13. This is really interesting and I’m truly happy for you – and I guess for anyone who goes after his/her dreams. I also "had" plans of working or moving abroad, but life took a detour and it blessed me with a family of my own. I still consider the possibility, but with a young kid in tow, it’d be hard to leave. 😀

    1. Thank you so much, Rea! All the hard work and disappointments from last year have paid off. I’m glad that you are blessed with a family of your own. That’s probably the best blessing a person can have <3
