    Tourist - carseat

    If you are a tourist in the USA(from norway) is it allowed to take norwegian carseat for use in the usa? Just on a holiday.
    Norway and USA does not have the same approval for seats. I've heard that this is totally OK for tourist, to use a seat thats dont have the US approval.

    Hi there. Godt nytt Śr!

    It'd be fine for you to use your Norwegian seat in the US. Whether it uses ISOFIX or the seatbelt you'll be able to install it here. It's not technically legal, but no one will bother you about it in the least.

    Especially if it's TUV approved, you can bring it on the aircraft and help keep your child safe there, as well as not lose it between Norway and the US.
