Importing Personal Effects to Norway

Norway is not a member of the EU, so goods will be subject to Norwegian Customs Regulations. You can import your used household effects duty free, provided that you have owned them for at least a year prior to arrival. When importing your personal effects to Norway, you will need a copy of your passport, a detailed inventory in English and Norwegian, and a completed Norwegian customs declaration form. Astro Movers will advise you of the specific requirements prior to your move.

Tips about Moving to and Living in Norway

A residence or work permit is not required for EU/EEA nationals staying in Norway up to three months. After this, you will need some permits to stay permanently and work in Norway.

While it might first seem hard to find employment in Norway, once you find a job, you will be able to enjoy high salaries and many benefits, such as long holidays, and time off for moving or getting married.

Norway is an egalitarian country – Everybody has the right to free medical care, and free education, and public transportation is excellent.

Living costs in Norway might seem prohibitively expensive at first: housing costs, cars or even regular shopping will probably be more expensive than what you are used to. Salaries, however, are also higher, which will offset the high cost of living.

Prohibitions and Restrictions

In general it is in your interest not to import the following items:

-Firearms & ammunition
-Inflammable goods & substances
-Plants & plant material
-Foodstuffs, perishables or otherwise
-Narcotics and dangerous goods
-Offensive materials
-Alcohol & Tobacco

Transit Times

Transit times can vary subject to the method of transport chosen, size of your consignment and the final destination. Astro Movers will advise you once this information is established.
