The import duties levied by customs on household items
You can bring your household belongings into Norway without being charged duty, if you purchased these goods at least one year ago. Customs also requires that you’ve been personally using them during this time. Another prerequisite for duty exemption, is residing in another country for a minimum of the last 12 months (1).
Customs has the right to examine your goods, and if they do so, your items should appear to be used. If customs waives duty on your shipment, be aware that this exemption extends to import taxes as well (2).
The paperwork required by customs for household items
Being granted clearance through customs means submitting the necessary paperwork, including your passport and Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Customs Form RG-124 (or perhaps Form RG-124A) is also required, and it appears that you may be able to fill this out after arrival. A full inventory that lists values for your goods is mandatory as well. Customs will also need to see Form RD 0030E (3).
The import duties levied by customs on your vehicle
Regrettably, only vehicles manufactured over 30 years ago qualify for duty exemption (and a value-added tax of 25% still applies). For all other vehicles, you will pay onerous import duties to bring them into the country. While the rough estimate of the combined duties and taxes is 105% of the vehicle’s value - your exact rate will vary based upon your specific vehicle.
Customs looks at engine size, amount of horsepower, vehicle weight and other factors when determining your duty and tax rate. All taxes and duties must be paid to customs before a shipment with a vehicle is released. If you proceed with importation of your vehicle, then bear in mind that an additional annual road tax must also be paid (4).
The paperwork required by customs for your vehicle
Importing a vehicle into Norway entails having the correct paperwork, such as the vehicle’s title and registration. A purchase receipt, Residence Permit, full inventory and Certificate of Compliance are all required as well. Customs also must be shown your Norwegian ID number, Original Bill of Lading and passport (5). A status report will also be requested, so be prepared to provide this document (6).
As customs procedures and requirements go, Norway’s are on the simple side (when compared to other countries around the world). However, it’s still prudent to contact them before moving, to determine if any further regulations, documentation requirements or fees will apply to your shipments.
Tips to make your international move easier
Start your packing early. About 90 days to the day of moving is the recommended timeframe. This will give you enough time to cater for everything including application for documents such as a passport and a visa.
Sift through your items and arrange your belongings according to size. Also, get rid of those things that you do not need. One great tip for packing is to use larger boxes for lighter items and smaller boxes for heavier goods. This way, no box will be crushed due to being light. While at it, let your whole family participate in this process.
Ensure that you have a valid US passport when moving to Norway. As a US citizen, you are not required to have a visa for the first 90 days. You will however, need to apply for a longer-stay visa if you are planning to stay longer. Make certain that you make such an arrangement through the Embassy of Norway.
Additionally, if you are moving due to work-related purposes, find out if you need a work permit then apply for one before leaving.
Make sure that you have the right information about the location to which you will be moving. You can start by searching the internet. You can also engage with friends and family members who reside there. Such information includes the local languages, rules and regulations, and the business environment.
