Brexit / Key Terms / What is a Norway deal? A guide to what kind of deal Norway have with the EU, and whether the UK wants a similar deal. Norway is a member of the EEA (European Economic Area), but not the EU. It gains full access to the single market, but is obliged to follow the majority of the EU's laws besides those applicable to agriculture, fishing and home affairs. Norway also pays into the EU budget and is duty-bound to accept freedom of movement.
