You probably have a lot of questions and we are here to help. This guide will give you the basics of moving to Norway from the U.S.

What Taxes and Duties Will I Need to Pay for my Stuff?

Taxes and Duties Rates To Move Norway

As it pertains to duty and taxes, Norway is pretty much aligned with most other countries. Your household goods are eligible to be imported into Norway tax and duty free as long as you:

  • Lived in your country of origin for at least the past year
  • Owned and used your belongings for at least a year, and plan to continue using them in Norway
  • Import your personal belongings to Norway within a reasonable time after your change of residence

You will need to provide documentation for your move, and this paperwork will be required at customs. One of the most important documents you will provide will be your inventory. In order to pass through customs, you will need to provide a detailed, comprehensive inventory of the goods you are importing.

While packing, take the extra time to itemize every item in every box with detailed descriptions. Number your boxes so that you can quickly identify their contents. When your items arrive in Norway, they will be inspected and checked against your list. Discrepancies can mean delays or penalties, so check it twice.

If the value of your personal items does not exceed 6,000 NOK or $655 US, you do not need to declare them. Even if you do have to declare your belongings, no big deal. You don’t have to be physically present for customs processing as long as you have arranged for an agent or shipping company to handle the process.

There are some items that you are not permitted to bring to Norway. For instance, you are strictly forbidden from being potatoes into the country. To avoid this and other such disappointments, be sure to check with your local embassy for the most current guidance.

What About my Pets?

You can bring your pets with you to Norway as long as you are able to meet vaccination and health requirements. You must ensure that your pet:

  • Has a current vaccination against rabies
  • Arrives in Norway within five days of you
  • Is evaluated by a veterinarian and given EU and International health certificates
  • Is examined a final time within 24 hours of departure from the country of origin

Can I Bring my Vehicle to Norway?

Before you import your vehicle to Norway, you will need to make sure that it is both insured and registered in compliance with the Automobile Liability Act.

Once you arrive at the border, local authorities will walk you through the process of importing your car. First you will be issued a transit document number and will have to fill out the required paperwork.  

After you get your transit document number at the border, you will need to move on to the Customs and Excise office. Presenting your transit document and vehicle information, you will obtain a temporary Norwegian registration plate for your vehicle. They will require the following paperwork:

  • Transit document (This is the one you received at the border upon arrival.)
  • Proof of vehicle ownership (To include invoices, bills of sale, and certainly, a title with no liens or disputed ownership)
  • Proof of insurance and registration in the country of origin

The final step in the process is to pay all applicable taxes and duties, including taxes for Perfluorocarbons, Hydrofluorocarbons, and VAT (Value-Added Tax). Calculate what it will cost to import a car to Norway.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
