Moving to Norway

When you move to Norway you will naturally want to take your belongings with you. Despite the fact that Norway is not part of the European Union, transport by road is no problem at all. Prior to the move, some documents are required to be given to the driver so that he can clear the goods at the border.

The costs of moving to Norway

Because the country is not part of the European Union and most cities are far apart, the costs are relatively high compared to other removals to Scandinavia. Based on the volume of your move and whether you want direct or combined transport, Transpack can send you a quote.

Do I need a visa for Norway?

To emigrate to Norway you need a valid passport and in some cases a visa. For living and/or working in Norway, we recommend that you contact the consulate or embassy of your home country. Eurohome‘s relocation specialists can also help you arrange a visa for your move to Norway.

What should you take with you when you emigrate to Norway?

To help you prepare for your trip, we have put together some tips for you. Make sure that documents, keys, medicines, jewellery and other important items are not included in your shipment. You should always take these items with you personally.


ClothingClothing is expensive in Norway. That is why many Norwegians buy clothes in bulk in London. Therefore, take a lot of your own clothes with you when you move to Norway. However, the rainwear from Norway is of very good quality.
Travel plug
The electricity voltage in Norway is about 230 Volts and the frequency is 50 Hertz. You will need a (world) adapter if you are bringing electrical appliances with you.
MedicinesCheck whether your medication is available in Norway and what the maximum permitted quantity is that you can take with you. Also check if you need a medical certificate for taking medication on a trip.
DocumentsCarry important documents such as passport, visa documents etc. in your hand luggage – make copies too.
Personal items
Think of your favourite toiletries, things that remind you of home and other things you can’t afford to be without.
Tip: pack a spare set of clothes in your hand luggage in case your checked luggage is delayed or lost.
