When dialing within Norway, drop the 011-47 designators. For example: 011-47-5195-0527 from the US becomes 5195-0527 within Norway.
Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (719) 567-1110. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
Official/No-Fee Passports are required for all active duty members and their families. This is imperative as they will need one to obtain a Norwegian bank account. It is advisable to arrive with a tourist passport since Official/No-Fee passports are not allowed for leisure travel.
Active Duty Members and their dependents do not need a VISA to enter Norway.
In order for pets to come into Norway with little or no quarantine, a certain procedure must be followed. Details on this procedure can be obtained from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority website or a local military veterinarian. It is advised to check the website on a regular basis as the procedure sometimes changes.
Members are responsible for their pet's travel. TMO will make reservations for pets on commercial flights; however, they cannot guarantee that the pets will fly. Only the airlines can make that determination (based on space-availability and weather). All expenses incurred are the responsibility of the member and members are advised to confirm expenses for pets travel once reservations are made. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact TMO Passenger Travel at your current location or DSN 314-224-0574.
