Travelling with pets

Norway is one of few European countries where rabies is not found, and every precaution is being taken to maintain this status.

Special provisions govern the importation of animals

Dogs, cats and ferrets from all EU countries must have pet passports, ID marking and valid rabies vaccination. Dogs must also be given approved tapeworm treatment, minimum 24 and maximum 120 hours before arrival.

Small rodents, cage birds and rabbits must have valid import permits issued by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

Please note that some types of dogs are prohibited in Norway.

More information

There may be exemptions to the information above, and additional rules apply for non-EU countries. Make sure that you consult the full instructions available at the Norwegian Food Safety Authority in good time before you travel. You can also contact the Norwegian Embassy or Consulate in your country for advice.
