Obtain customs clearance and pay the relevant value added tax

You now have to pay the applicable value added tax and any tax on greenhouse gases in the vehicle's air-conditioning system. This is known as 'customs clearance'.


You must normally report to the destination customs office by a certain deadline (normally 1-3 days). Bring the following documents with you:

  • the transit document you received from either the foreign or the Norwegian customs authorities
  • invoice or purchase agreement stating the actual purchase sum, as well as any carriage invoice and documentation of other expenses accrued before the vehicle was brought into Norway (e.g. insurance). If applicable, bring an up-to-date valuation of the vehicle from the country of origin if you have not purchased it recently.
  • the original foreign registration document, any certificate of conformity (COC).

See the overview of customs offices.

During customs clearance, you will be issued with a registration document called Melding til avgiftsberegning og registrering (Declaration for tax calculation and registration - form NA-0221). You will need this docment when going to the Public Roads Administration.
