Leave of absence while you are abroad #
If you will take a leave of absence while you are abroad, you do not automatically have the same rights to a leave of absence as you do while you are in Norway. You must apply to retain these rights.
If you will have a leave of absence you must:
- First, read about membership in the insurance scheme
- Apply for coverage under the National Insurance Scheme
- Apply for coverage to be extended during your leave of absence
Both applications should be sent to NAV internasjonalt (in Norwegian)
Extending or suspending your sabbatical due to leave of absence #
If you will have maternity leave or any other kind of leave during your sabbatical, you can apply to extend your sabbatical.
Your sabbatical should be extended to resume immediately after the original sabbatical was scheduled to end.
If you have to suspend your sabbatical leave because of giving birth or the need for a compassionate or other type of leave, you can apply to take the remainder of your sabbatical at a later time.
