For those of you who have not visited Norway: the price of alcohol and tobacco products in Norway is amongst the highest in the world, particularly at hotels. Therefore, you might consider bringing whatever you think that you will use with you. You can purchase alcohol and tobacco products tax free at the duty free shops when you enter Norway - they are BEFORE the baggage claim area. The tax free allowance is as follows:
- One litre of an alcoholic beverage containing more than 22% and up to 60% alcohol by volume and one and a half litres containing more than 2.5% up to 22% alcohol by volume, or three litres of beverages containing more than 2.5% and up to 22% alcohol by volume
- Two litres of beer containing more than 2.5% alcohol by volume, or other beverage containing more than 2.5% and up to 4.7% alcohol by volume. This means, for example, that you can import five litres of beer if you do not have other alcoholic beverages with you
- 200 cigarettes or 250 grams of other tobacco products, and
- 200 sheets of cigarette papers
