    So you are thinking of moving to Scandinavia?

    Have you ever wondered why we often find ourselves daydreaming about the beautiful fjords, warm and cozy evenings by the fire, or just lying under the midnight sun when we think of Scandinavia?

    Renowned for their high living standards, social coherence, and generous Nordic welfare provisions, the Scandinavian nations of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland offer plenty to be envious of. Scandinavia is an excellent place for families due to its beautiful scenery, friendly residents, great healthcare and education systems, and thriving economies. Additionally, the food is delicious, making it an ideal destination for anyone.

    Making big life-changing decisions like moving overseas with a family requires a lot of thought and planning, especially when you have little children. It’s important to conduct thorough research to ensure you make the right choice. You’ll need to consider various factors such as where your kids will attend school, whether your family’s quality of life will improve in Scandinavia compared to the UK, and the quality of healthcare available in the region.

    Scandinavia is a subregion in northern Europe comprising several countries, and you might be wondering which one would be the best fit for your young family if you’re considering relocating there.

    Which countries are in Scandinavia?

    There has been much debate over the years about which countries should be considered as part of Scandinavia. However, the generally accepted definition includes Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, with both Sweden and Norway being located on the Scandinavian Peninsula.

    While culturally, people also consider Finland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands as part of Scandinavia, there is an ongoing discussion regarding which countries should be included under this term. For our research, we will focus specifically on Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland.

    It is important to ensure that all of your and your family’s immigration documents are in order before moving to Scandinavia, especially after Brexit, as there is more paperwork involved.

    If you are planning to work in Scandinavia, your new employer will need to complete the necessary paperwork with immigration authorities to obtain a work visa for you, unless you or your partner already hold a passport or residence permit for the country in question.
