If you are exporting goods to Norway, note changes in the customs rules!

The Norwegian Customs Agency is in process of ending the exemption from the customs rule, making direct deliveries without customs completed impossible. Also, the rule exempting declaration of goods going to bonded warehouses will come to an end.

The Norwegian Customs Agency has proposed postponing the end date to the autumn of 2023, but this will apply from 1.1.23. There will be a period of transition, and final date for when this period is over has not yet been set.

For you as a customer, these are the changes;

From 1st of January 2023 it is important that

  • addresses match on the invoice and booking

  • the number of parcels matches the invoice and booking

  • stated weight is the same on both invoice and booking - this is very important!

In addition, we must receive the invoice as a PDF with the booking. A fee may be charged when we don't receive the documents we need for customs clearance.

We may risk goods being stopped at the border if correct information and documents are not in place.
