I intend to move to Iceland for my graduate studies. Iceland, however does not issue work permits with student visas (student residence permits). My university site says that a part time work permit has to be obtained through the prospective employer.
The official website of Immigration in Iceland says that you need to apply beforehand and that it is not possible to apply once you come into the country without leaving and reapplying. Can someone clarify the correct way to obtain a work permit with my student residence permit in Iceland?
This is important to me as I intend to finance myself through my studies by working part time.
