Most dogs and cats can be freely brought to Sweden from Norway

Dogs and cats can be freely brought to Sweden from Norway. You need no passport, no treatment and no permit to bring dogs, cats or ferrets from Norway to Sweden, unregarded for what purpose they are brought.

If you intend to travel with a dog between the Norwegian mainland and the Svalbard Islands, you need permission from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Cats and ferrets must not be brought to the Svalbard Islands.

If you travel through Sweden to Norway and back, you must however bring the pet passport along with the animal.
