Smoking in Norway

Enforcement of smoking bans is strong in Norway

Smoking in Norway is banned, inside, in public buildings and other places open to the public, including aboard aircraft or other means of public transport.[1]

The legal age to buy tobacco is 18 years in Norway, but 10%-12% of 15-year olds smoke daily or weekly, and 31% of adults smoke daily or occasionally. The overall proportion of smokers is decreasing.[2]


Approximately 17% of adult men and 4% of adult women use snus daily or occasionally

In Norway in 2008, approximately 17% of adult men used snus daily or occasionally, while 4% of adult women used snus daily or occasionally.[2] In secondary schools in 2000-2004, 21% of boys and 4% of girls used snus daily or occasionally.[2] Many people both smoke and use snus.[2]

The proportion of smokers is higher among immigrants to Norway than among ethnic Norwegians.[2] The highest proportion of smokers can be found among immigrants from Turkey, Iran, Vietnam and Pakistan.[2]
