Specific rules apply if you intend to use the Carnet for horses. A Carnet is issued only if you intend to use the horse in competitions.
Private individuals or firms with a low credit rating must provide a guarantee corresponding to 30 per cent of the total value of the goods listed. The amount will cover any VAT that the Oslo Chamber of Commerce must pay to foreign customs authorities if the horse is not taken out of the country before the Carnet expires (one year).
If you are a member of the Norwegian Equestrian Federation or Øvrevoll Veddeløpsbane AS, you must contact them when you want to order a Carnet.
Filling out the goods list
Each horse’s name, ID number, colour, date of birth, gender and market value must be entered in the goods list.
If a Carnet is ordered through the Norwegian Equestrian Federation or Øvrevoll Veddeløpsbane AS, the rider (or their representative) must pay the invoice before the Carnet is collected.
The Norwegian Equestrian Federation or Øvrevoll Veddeløpsbane AS will then be recorded as the Carnet’s holder, while the invoice is sent directly to the rider (or their representative).
