Sarpborg is a large city and municipality in the middle of Østfold County, Norway is. It is also the center municipality as well as being the fifth largest urban location in Norway, when compared with its neighbor, Fredrikstad.
The import laws and regulations today have become more efficient as Norway and has an increased population of expatriates, both furthering their education as well as working in different cities. Before you import your vehicle, you will need to submit the documents to the Norway Customs Department and to the U.S. Customs to verify all the information you have provided in your request form.
If you plan to move to Sarpborg for a few months or even a few years, you will need to fill out the appropriate forms to register for a residential or work permit. This paperwork in addition to what you already need will complete your request for import from the United States. Norway is part of the European Union so there are emission laws that must be followed before your request can be approved. If your vehicle does not pass the emissions inspection, you will need to have it modified before it can be transported.

Auto Import Laws in Norway.
If you don’t follow the rules and regulations on importing, your delivery will be delayed or rejected. The only limit to these restrictions are if you choose the Roll On/ Roll Off method of shipping or container shipping. You will need to verify that nothing in your contents is illegal. You can put household items inside the container for shipping and choose either a 20 foot or 40-foot container if needed. Once you load the container up, it is then sealed.
Your vehicle will need to pass the emissions test if it had to be modified before it can be boarded in the United States. Once this is done, your vehicle will be shipped. When you work with an experienced auto shipping company such as A1 Auto Transport Service they have the experience that you will learn to depend on with confidence.
Once your vehicle is delivered to the port, there are other procedures that will need to be completed before your vehicle is clear; all duties and taxes must be paid, testing on the modifications and emissions testing is also required. Your vehicle will need to be cleared completely before it can be ready to go on the roads in Trondheim. You will need to register the vehicle and obtain license plates and registration through the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Transportation and Communications.
You will need to contact the Embassy of Norway to learn more about the current laws and regulations requirements for importing vehicles.
