Carnets Are Required For Norway
Norway are EEA members, not in the EU as such. ATA Carnets are needed for temporary export to Norway and remain valid for a year. They can be used for samples, professional equipment, or items to be shown at events and exhibitions.
The video shows the egalatarian nature of modern Norway, in terms of gender and societal status. Treating all those you meet with equal respect is a good approach to doing business and to building relationships.
Transit Use & Territories
An ATA carnet can be used for goods in transit. Where this is to any/all EU countries, they are treated as one destination.
Carnets are not accepted in Norwegian territories, such as Svalbard and Jan Mayen Island. If you are visiting there, our staff will advise on the best customs arrangements.
Internal Support & Use
Within Norway, ATA carnets are well understood. They have been in use since 1964 and are accepted in English, French, German, or any Scandinavian language.
Using a carnet for items sent by post is normally okay. Replacements for lost carnets can be arranged and extension beyond 12 months is equally normal.
Points To Remember
If you need a replacement, or extension, clients can again contact us. For these requirements, or others, the work life balance in Norway often means office hours are best.
On a personal level, worth noting that despite the Schengen Area, Norway have brought back full passport checks at a number of borders.
Beyond local quirks, which exist everywhere, you will find ATA carnet use in Norway a smooth process. Their customs staff are part of a sophisticated market, where trading with the UK is well established and represents an opportunity.
