Regulations for meat, milk, cheese and other foods

The quota of a total of 10 kilograms of meat, meat products, cheese and animal feed products apply when travelling to Norway from the EEA area.  

This 10-kilogram limit does not apply to dog and cat food, only other animal feed. Beyond this quota, it is the value limit that determines how much food you may bring without paying Norwegian taxes. 

Meat and dairy products from countries outside the EEA area 

You cannot bring meat and dairy products in your personal luggage or in postal items from countries outside the EEA without a special permit from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. 

You do not need a permit to bring meat, meat products or milk, cheese and other dairy products from Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Andorra or San Marino. 


It is not permitted to import potatoes to Norway without special permission. 

Age limits for children 

Children may only bring soft drinks, chocolate and sugar products duty free. If they are bringing other products, they must be 12 years of age.
