Most consumer products can be imported into Norway without any requirement for import licence or permits. However, for many products and product types, registration and approval are mandatory, or specific requirements will apply to the products.


Most goods and services can be exported from Norway without any need to apply for permission. Exports to countries outside the EU must generally be notified in advance to Norwegian Customs. However, you should note that special rules and restrictions apply to some goods. In other cases, there may be restrictions on exporting to specific countries or the recipient countries may impose restrictions on imports.
