Relocation Information

Norway puts a g great emphasis on the health of imported pets. They also make sure that there is no illegal trade, e.g. endangered species. Norwegian legislation regarding imports of stray dogs (non pedigree dogs, dogs from shelters and/ or with an unknown background) changed in 2018 and thus it is no longer possible to import a stray dog that hasn’t been in your custody for less than 6 months prior to moving into the country.
