VAT and customs for Norway
VAT, custom duties and fees for Norway
You must pay VAT and any other taxes on goods you buy from abroad.
On 1 April 2020, the VOEC scheme (VAT On E-Commerce) took effect for foreign online shops and online marketplaces. As of this date, such businesses will collect Norwegian value-added tax (VAT) when you pay for goods that you have purchased online. Read more here.
In 2020, the NOK 350 limit was removed for all goods. A transitional arrangement has been established which means that goods under NOK 350 are exempt from the declaration obligation during the transitional period. There is still VAT on all goods from the first NOK after 1.4.2020. Read more here.
In practice, this means that the NOK 350 limit remains in effect, and you do not have to pay import duty on such shipments.
If you are going to shop online from abroad for more than NOK 350 you can calculate how much you have to pay in customs duty and fees with the import calculator here.
