The relocation arrangements

After being offered a job at a hospital and during the language course, our team makes sure everything is arranged for your arrival in Scandinavia.

We help you with all the certificates and authorizations and provide information concerning social security, tax certificates, ID cards, insurances, etc. Our staff makes sure all the paperwork and arrangements are ready before you set foot on the Scandinavian ground. Meanwhile, you and your family should focus on learning the language.


Doctors and nurses from all over Europe relocated to Scandinavia and were happy to share their experiences with us: “After I was offered a job at the hospital in Aalborg, MediCarrera started the relocation process. The first thing was to apply for licenses and other required paperwork. While they were getting everything sorted, I was invited for a second visit, arranged by the hospital in Aalborg. After that, it was time to move to Denmark. The relocation process was easy for me because MediCarrera organized everything.” Mirko, a Neurologist from Croatia working in Denmark “MediCarrera did a very good job helping us with everything surrounding the move, especially with finding a place to live. For example, we didn’t know about the queue system that exists in Sweden for getting an apartment, so without their help, it would have been very hard for us.” Agnes, a GP from Hungary working in Sweden “The cooperation with MediCarrera was very good. They helped us from the very start to the end.” Aloys, a Neurologist from Belgium working in Norway “It is very important that you are positive and motivated. The whole process is lengthy: Visits to Denmark, the intensive language course and then the move. Keep in mind that it also takes time to settle in a new country.” Gustav, a Psychiatrist from Slovakia working in Denmark If you’re a doctor or a nurse interested in career opportunities in Scandinavia register here.
