Simplified customs declaration of alcohol and tobacco

As a traveller to Norway you may, in addition to the duty free quota, declare up to 27 litres of beer or wine, four litres of spirits, 400 cigarettes and 500 grams of tobacco, chewing tobacco or snuff for personal use.

Note: An update of this article is pending. Please note that some terms and/or references may differ from the Movement of Goods Act and the Customs Duty Act that enters into force from the 1st of January 2023.

If you are bringing more alcohol or tobacco than the quota, you must declare using the Norwegian Customs app. Alternatively you must pass through the red channel to declare.
