Here are a few helpful
tips for your visit to Norway
Passport and Visas
To enter Norway if a citizen of the United Kingdom, the United
States, Canada or
Western Europe you need a valid passport, but no Visa unless you
intend to stay for
longer than 3 months. Your 3-month periods are calculated from
the time you enter
country in Scandinavia. Your passport must remain valid throughout
the 3-month period.
Your nearest Norwegian embassy will positively give you visa information.
Currency and Money
Norway once had the reputation of being the most expensive country
in Europe. Price
differences between Norway and rest of the Europe are now narrowing
It's not that Norway has grown less expensive; the rest of Europe
has caught up with it.
The total cost of visiting Paris, Stockholm or Copenhagen may
easily exceed that in any
part of Norway.
The Norwegian crown (krone) is commonly abbreviated as NOK. One
equal 100 øre. Post Offices and Banks exchange major foreign
currency and travelers
cheques. Major credit cards are gladly accepted in most places
Norwegian, like Danish and Swedish, belongs to the northern group
of German language.
A mixed group of the three nationalities freely converse among
themselves, each speaking his native tongue. Norwegian is not
a language for the shy; many words are
enunciated and spoken with great vigour.
Do try to learn a bit of Norwegian, although pronunciation is
notoriously difficult for the
native English speaker.
Norwegian must now take English in school, and many particulary
if under 50 years of age, can communicate in English, but only
at basic level. Engelish skills fade away as you travel deeper
into the rural areas.
For entry into Norway from infection-free nations, such as Canada
the USA or anywhere
In Western Europe, you need no vaccination nor must you take any
Prescriptions from foreign countries will not be honored; you
should bring plenty of your prescriptions medicines with you.
Medicines should be carried in their original bottles, or
you should carry a doctor’s letter of verification.
