Travelling with medicines

When travelling to Norway, you may bring medicines for personal use. There are limits to the amounts you can bring with you.

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.

It is the Norwegian Medicines Agency that is responsible for regulations concerning medicines. The rules vary depending on whether you are travelling to or from Norway, and they depend on the type of medicine. There are also different rules for what you may bring on holiday and what you may receive as a shipment.

Norwegian Customs may ask you to document that you are in compliance with regulations. You may be asked to present a prescription or medical certificate.
