Moving out of Norway

If you are moving from Norway to another country, you must be aware that different countries have different rules/regulations for import. You must contact the customs authorities in the country you are moving to for information about regulations for the import of your household goods.  

I am transporting my household goods myself 

You must make an inventory list of your household goods. It does not have to be very detailed. Example: 

  • Box 1 – Clothing 

  • Box 2 – Kitchenware 

  • Box 3 – Toys 

  • 1 Sofa 

  • 1 TV 

If the value of your household goods exceeds NOK 5 000, you have to declare the goods for export to the Norwegian customs by making a declaration. You can do this in advance at your local customs office. Bring with you your inventory list and ID. 

If you are going to transport the household goods out of Norway by ferry, you must make a declaration in advance at a local customs office. You must stop and present the declaration to the Norwegian Customs before you board the ferry. 

If you want to transport the household goods out of Norway yourself by road, you may make a declaration at the border customs office during opening hours. You must stop at the border and present the inventory list and personal ID. 

If your declaration was cleared by customs in advance, you have to stop at the border to show this. 

I am using a moving company or another professional carrier 

Usually, these companies know the regulations and the correct procedures, and they may also make the declaration on your behalf. You should check this with the company before the export. 

I am bringing my car when I am moving 

If you are bringing your car, your motorcycle or another vehicle, you can read more about this here. 

I am bringing weapons in my household 

If you are bringing weapons or ammunition, you must get permission for export from the police in advance. Contact your local police for more information.
