Importing clothes and textiles to Norway for private use

Clothes and textiles including shipping costs with a value of 849,27 Norwegian kroner (NOK) bought for 100,00 American dollar (USD) plus Skrill’s currency exchange premium of 64,88 NOK adds up to a total purchase sum of 914,15 NOK. This last sum is what you pay to the online store at the time of purchase.

You can save 50,02 NOK in exchange premiums by paying with Visa/MasterCard instead of Skrill.


The purchase price is above the 350 NOK 350 NOK value added tax and customs exemption limit. You must pay 25,00 % of the purchase price in value added taxes which equals equals 235,51 NOK. Clothes and textiles have a 10,70 % customs tariff resulting in a 91,06 Norwegian kroner fee. Clothes and textiles properly declared and labeled as “Produced in the EU” may be exempt from the customs tariff but few stores properly declare items and you shouldn’t assume you’ll get exempted.

Posten charges a 153,00 NOK customs clearance fee for processing government fees on your behalf.

You’ll owe 479,57 NOK in government and other fees to be paid to Posten on arrival. The currency exchange rate used to calculate government fees are based on next week’s exchange rates as provided by Norwegian Customs (Tollvesenet).
