How to conference call Norway

Norway is the fourth largest country in Europe and although not a part of the European Union (EU), it  is a member of the European Economic Area (EEA) and does adhere to the same trading code practice as the EU.

Although Norway has a population of just 5 million, it is one of the world’s wealthiest nations, per captia, and its economy has remained stable throughout the economic crisis.

Offshore oil and gas is responsible for about 25% of value creation in Norway, with crude oil, natural gas and electricity account for about 65% of all exports.

As far as exports to Norway go, it is the UK’s 24th largest market – the market worth £3.5billion last year – and most common exports include: chemicals, machinery, medicines, petroleum products, as well as animal and vegetable bi-products.

Whatever your business though, if you export to Norway, or have any business interests out there, a conference call offers an easy and cost effective way to keep in touch, needing nothing more than a landline or mobile phone.

What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Norway?

If you’re travelling to Norway, check the latest travel advice where Covid-19 restrictions are concerned and be prepared for plans to change at the last minute.

There are no inherent risks involved in travelling to Norway, with no reports of terrorism (although this can never be completely ruled out) and crime against tourists is also very rare, and at a much lower level than other European countries.

If you’re driving in Norway, there’s no need for an International Driving Permit (IDP) and can drive using a valid UK or other EU/EEA driving licence. If you’re taking your own car, you’ll need to display a GB sticker.

Bear in mind that Norway is huge country with narrow roads (that are sometimes impassible in winter) and slower speed limits, so journeys might take longer than you expect. Speeding fines are high.

Always drive with your lights on and, when driving in winter, you must fit all wheels with winter tyres that have a minimum tread depth of 3mm.

Feel free to travel to Norway and do business as you would any other country.
