According to a study held by International Peace Research Institute (PRIO), Filipinos in Norway are third among about 13 immigrant/foreign groups in Norway with the most number of ways to transfer money to their home countries. There are 29 available remittance services, in 13 methods, all legal, available to Filipinos.
