How long does it take to ship GOODS to Norway?

The duration of shipping vehicles from U.S. ports to Norway can vary based on several factors, including the specific port of departure, the destination port in Norway, the shipping route, weather conditions, and any potential delays during transit or at customs. On average, shipping a vehicle from the United States to Norway can take approximately 2 to 4 weeks.

Here’s a general estimate of transit times from the mentioned U.S. ports to major ports in Norway:

  1. Long Beach, CA, USA to Oslo, Norway: Approximately 3 to 4 weeks.
  2. Houston, TX, USA to Oslo, Norway: Approximately 3 to 5 weeks.
  3. Savannah, GA, USA to Oslo, Norway: Approximately 3 to 4 weeks.
  4. New York, NY, USA to Oslo, Norway: Approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

Please note that these estimates are subject to change due to factors beyond our control, such as weather, port congestion, and customs clearance. It’s recommended to get in touch with your Direct Express Inc Agent for the most accurate and up-to-date information on shipping durations for your specific route and time of shipping.

Additionally, the mentioned time frames are for the transportation part of the journey and don’t account for potential time spent on customs clearance and final delivery to your destination within Norway. Always allow some buffer time to account for any unexpected delays that might arise during the shipping process.


Car Shipping to Norway Checklist

  • Original Title/MSO
  • Completed SLI & POA form

VAT Rates Norway

Prior to importing a vehicle from the US to Norway, verify your vehicle’s specifications and compliance with Norway requirements. Anyone importing a vehicle to Norway from the US needs to pay certain duties.

If you are importing a vehicle to Norway from the USA, your car will be subject to local customs duties levied by the Norwegian government, these include:

  • Registration Tax – Calculated based on your vehicle specifications, this is only paid once.
  • 25% VAT – Based on the customs value, paid when you cross the border.
  • Greenhouse Gas Tax – Calculated according to weight of the greenhouse gases in your vehicle’s air conditioning system.
  • Scrap Deposit Tax – Collected with your Registration Tax.

However, in certain circumstances you might be able to gain exemption from paying customs duties and taxes.

Temporary residents staying for a year or less can import the vehicle tax and duty free. However, the time period begins upon your arrival to Norway, not when your vehicle arrives. If you’re planning on staying more than a year, all required taxes must be paid.

The amount of taxes and import duties payable when importing a car to Norway from the US will vary and depends on the details of your shipment.
