Norway is one of three Scandinavian countries located in Northern Europe, with borders to Sweden, Finland and Russia on the east side, and an extensive coastline facing the North Atlantic Ocean on the west side. The country boasts a population of just over 5.2 million.
The major cities in Norway are located along its extensive coastline. Oslo, the country’s capital, is also the largest city, boasting around 620,000 inhabitants. Other major cities are Bergen and Stavanger. The climate can be extremely varied depending on the location and, of course, the season. The northern regions of Norway experience long, dark winters, as well as midnight sun during the summer months. On the west, the climate is mild.
Norway has been repeatedly ranked as one of the best countries to live in, largely based on average levels of education and income, combined with life expectancy, human rights, cultural freedom and the fact that it has one of the lowest crime rates across the world.

Norway is becoming an increasingly more popular choice for international students from all across the globe, and it’s easy to see why.

Please note that import allowances, security and customs processes differ all around the world; we recommend that you do your own personal research into what may be prohibited in your destination country before booking your shipment to Norway.
What type of packaging can be used?
When sending your belongings to Norway with My Baggage, we recommend using either suitcases or strong cardboard boxes to package your items so as they are suitable for transit.
We advise against using fragile or expensive suitcases, as packaging is not covered under our compensation cover. With regards to boxes, it’s always best to invest in a new, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box as they are most durable and suitable for transit.

Other Ways Of Shipping To Norway
There are various options for shipping to Norway, and it is important to make yourself aware of all of the various methods available, as some may be better suited to your personal circumstances than others. Here are just a few alternative options:
International Removals To Norway
Relocating to Norway on a permanent basis? If so, you might consider transporting all of your worldly belongings with a reputable international removals company. Traditional international removals are ideal if you need to send a number of large items that may be otherwise difficult to transport, such as furniture, i.e. sofas, or perhaps even your car.
The cost and timescale of your removals can vary greatly depending entirely on the scale of your move. Many traditional international removals companies will offer convenient door to door collection and delivery services – though it is always worth noting that some may require you to arrange transportation of your belongings to and from ports yourself.
Send A Parcel To Norway
Not only does My Baggage ship personal effects to Norway, but we can send parcels and gifts, too. Why not send a thoughtful care-package to your loved one living overseas?
Norwegian Customs Information
When shipping goods to Norway, you are legally required to complete and send a customs declaration with your shipment. Whether you’re sending personal effects in a suitcase or a gift to a loved one; if your shipment does not have customs documents attached, it will not make it past your local country border, and you may have to pay return charges to get it back. My Baggage will automatically provide you with the appropriate customs documents for you to complete, print, sign and attach to your shipment when you book with us.
Generally, My Baggage shipments clear customs in a timely manner, free from duties and taxes, as most countries offer a generous duty-free allowance for personal effects. However, as customs processes and allowance are different around the world, and because My Baggage has no control over any customs authority; we do advise doing your own personal research into Norwegian customs regulations and quarantine before booking your shipment to Norway. Please make yourself aware of potential customs duties in Norway and be sure to follow any and all advice provided by customs directly.
Norwegian customs in particular typically view personal effects as used items that have been in the sender’s possession for 6 months or more. It is important to be aware that if your shipment is checked by Norwegian customs and is found to contain brand new or commercial items, your shipment may be assessed for customs duties and taxes.
When completing your customs documents, it is important to do so properly and clearly. In order to demonstrate that your shipment consists of personal effects, you will be required to accurately describe each item included in the package. For example, you would declare: “4 x t-shirts, 2 x pairs of jeans, 3 x dresses” etc, as opposed to “10 x clothing”.
