Currently Kindle Unlimited is not available in Norway however there are few ways you can still use the service. Here’s how to get around to the block and enjoy Kindle books in Norway.
What is Kindle Unlimited?
Kindle Unlimited is a service that allows you to read as much as you want, choosing from over 1 million titles and thousands of audiobooks.
Amazon Kindle in Norway/Norge
Many Norwegians pickup Kindle readers while traveling in UK or the USA. They are sometimes surprised to get home only to find out it’s not very well supported in Norway. If you purchased the Kindle in the UK you likely assume you would buy Kindle books from the Amazon UK store. However, it’s better and easier to purchase books from the main Amazon.com website. You’ll also get a better selection of books to download to your Kindle.

Making Payments without a US Address or Credit Card
To avoid having your account flagged it’s recommended to use American addresses and credit cards. If you don’t have either you can use a fake address or use a friends address in the USA. Since with Kindle no physical items are actually shipped the address is not important. It just needs to be a valid US address.
For payment without a credit card you can use Amazon gift cards. These can be purchased at many retailers or online with a service like Bitrefill.
When purchasing your Kindle Unlimited subscription select the annual option ($120) to have access all year and avoid monthly renewal payments.
Once set up you can now access and download all the books offered through Kindle Unlimited. Use your VPN to order your books via Amazon.com and once your Kindle syncs they’ll be available to read.
