  • up to 25 cutflowers 

  • up to 3 kilograms flower bulbs and flower knolls 

  • up to 5 potted plants (house plants) from European countries 

  • up to 50 packets of seeds. 

If you are bringing larger amounts, you must have a phytosanitary certificate for the goods. Please note that you need a special permit to bring potatoes to Norway, regardless of the quantity. 

Further information can be obtained from the  Norwegian Food Saftey Authority. 


It is forbidden to bring pesticides to Norway, either as a professional (unless you are approved by the competent authority) or for personal use in your own garden.
