Importing scarves, ties, and gloves to Norway for private use

Scarves, ties, and gloves including shipping costs with a value of 849,27 Norwegian kroner (NOK) bought for 100,00 American dollar (USD) plus PayPal’s currency exchange premium of 33,97 NOK adds up to a total purchase sum of 883,24 NOK. This last sum is what you pay to the online store at the time of purchase.

You can save 19,11 NOK in exchange premiums by paying with Visa/MasterCard instead of PayPal.


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 224,66 NOK. Scarves, ties, and gloves have a 5,60 % customs tariff resulting in a 47,66 Norwegian kroner fee. Scarves, ties, and gloves 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.
