Does Amazon Kindle and Kindle Unlimited Work in Norway/Norge?

Kindle Unlimited is a subscription-based service provided by Amazon that allows users unlimited access to a vast selection of e-books, audiobooks, and magazines. The service works on any device with the Kindle app, meaning you can use it on smartphones, tablets, and computers in addition to Kindle e-readers. Kindle Unlimited is particularly useful for avid readers who read multiple books a month, as it can provide considerable savings compared to purchasing each book individually. Note that while the service includes many titles, not all books available on Amazon are included in the Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Currently Kindle Unlimited is not available in Norway however there are a few ways you can still use the service. Here’s how to get around to the block and enjoy Kindle books in Norway.

Amazon Kindle in Norway/Norge

Many Norwegians pick up 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 website. You’ll also get a better selection of books to download to your Kindle.

Creating an account to use Kindle in Norway

Before starting to signup and use US-based services like Amazon and Netflix it’s recommended to get a VPN. This allows you to access these services and hide your location. You’ll want to use a VPN in Norway when signing up for Amazon and making purchases. It works with all devices including mobile phones and iPad.

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 friend’s address in the USA. Since with Kindle, no physical items are actually shipped the address is not essential. It just needs to be a valid US address.

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 and once your Kindle syncs they’ll be available to read.
