How long does it take to ship my car to Norway?

Shipping your vehicle internationally involves numerous variables, which can influence the overall transit time. However, for a clearer understanding, here’s an estimated timeframe for shipping a car to Norway from major U.S. ports:

1. Los Angeles, CA to Norway:

  • Estimated Transit Time: 14 to 21 days.
  • Factors Influencing Time: The Pacific route is one of the most frequently used routes for shipping, but the significant distance covered is a primary determinant of the time taken. Additionally, the frequency of shipments, weather conditions, and stops en route can impact the duration.

2. Houston, TX to Norway:

  • Estimated Transit Time: 15 to 23 days.
  • Factors Influencing Time: From Houston, vessels may need to navigate the Gulf of Mexico before setting a transatlantic course. The Caribbean and the open Atlantic can sometimes pose weather-related delays.

3. Savannah, GA to Norway:

  • Estimated Transit Time: 10 to 18 days.
  • Factors Influencing Time: Savannah, with its strategic location, can often provide quicker routes to Europe, including Norway. However, the time can vary based on vessel schedules and weather disruptions.

4. New York, NY to Norway:

  • Estimated Transit Time: 8 to 16 days.
  • Factors Influencing Time: Being one of the closest major ports to Europe, New York often boasts quicker transit times to Norway. The North Atlantic route is well-traveled, but can be subject to weather disturbances, especially during winter months.

Note: It’s essential to understand that these are estimated timeframes and can change based on various factors, including specific shipping schedules, seasonal changes, and unforeseen delays. Always consult with the shipping company for the most up-to-date and accurate transit times.

Before you decide on the most suitable port for your needs, we recommend discussing your requirements and preferences with our shipping coordinators. They can provide a more tailored estimate and guide you through the best options available.


Car Shipping to Norway Checklist

In order to export any vehicle from the U.S., we will require the following in order to meet US Custom regulations:

  • Original Title/MSO
  • Completed SLI & POA form
  • Copy of Passport
  • Commercial Invoice / Bill of Sale (official DMV template available on request)

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.
