Norwegian Customs App for quota calculation and customs clearance
Calculate the duty free quota for alcohol and tobacco and clear through customs the items you are bringing in above the quota.
If you want to bring in alcohol and tobacco products exceeding the duty free quota, you can use this app to calculate the duty you have to pay. Using this app you can clear up to 27 liters of beer or wine, four liters of spirits, 400 cigarettes, 500 grams of tobacco or snuff and 400 cigarette papers and tubes.
When you have completed the customs clearance, a receipt will appear in the app. You may then cross the border through the green channel, and you do not have to present yourself to Customs.
You can choose to complete the customs clearance directly before crossing the border, or clear your goods in advance.
At a customs control, you will be asked to show the receipt you have received. The receipt states what items you have cleared, and the time period in which you can cross the border.
You can choose to have a copy of the receipt sent to a given e-mail address. Note that the e-mail is not valid as receipt at a customs control.
You can choose to clear goods for one more person in addition to yourself. You must cross the border together.
The app includes information on the duty free quota, customs clearance of alcohol and tobacco and regulations concerning travelling to and from Norway.

Accessibility problem in the app
There is a problem in The Norwegian Customs App related to the screen reader VoiceOver for iPhone: In the "Quota calculator" page VoiceOver reads out names of beverages and alcohol percentages (like "Beer over 2.5%"), but does not give any information that this is a button/clickable. It can therefore be challenging to know that it is possible to click on it (that it is not just text) through VoiceOver. This problem can make the app less accessible for persons who operates it via VoiceOver due to a visual impairment, or for other reasons. I hope it will be fixed as soon as possible.
