- Packages can not be over 120 cm long, width over 60 cm and/or height over 60 cm
- Parcels must have outer packaging

Forbidden content and restrictions
The package must not contain weapon, ammunition, live animals, relics, tobacco products, dangerous or valuable content such as gold, silver, precious stones, coins, banknotes or securities. The content must not exceed a value of 100,000.– kroner per parcel.
Some countries have lower maximum dimensions and maximum weight, and the countries might have different regulations concerning what is allowed to ship. For more information about special regulations for each country (in Norwegian only).
All packages sent out of Norway must be customs cleared. The customs authority, both in Norway and in the recipient countries, requires that various customs documentation are attached to your shipment. If information is missing or if the documents are incomplete, the shipment may be delayed. As the sender, you are responsible for adding the correct information about your shipment.
Essentially, all consignments containing more than one regular letter must be processed in customs.
And the Customs Service requires goods to be cleared/declared in the following cases:
- Packages in a value in excess of 5000.– kroner.
- Packages to be returned.
- Packages sent temporarily out of Norway. For example, goods for repair.
Customs clearance is included in the price you pay for sending a parcel abroad.
