Grense Jakobselv (Northern Sami: Vuorjánjohka and Finnish: Vuoremijoki) is a small settlement on the Barents Sea at the mouth of the Jakobselva river, in Finnmark, Norway. It lies 54 km by road east of Kirkenes.

The river forms the border with Russia, and there is a small post of the Sør-Varanger garrison of the Norwegian Army, from where border patrols are made. However there is no public border crossing at this point.

In the village there is a stone chapel built in 1869 called King Oscar II's Chapel. The church was built to reinforce Norway's territorial claim to the area, and was named after Oscar II of Sweden and Norway.

Grense Jakobselv is the point in mainland Norway farthest by road from Norway's capital Oslo: 2,465 km by a route entirely within Norway Google maps: Oslo Central Station - E18 (2 km) - Rv190 (5.5 km) - E6 (121 km) - Rv3 (272 km) - E6 (1501 km) - Rv93 (97 km) - Rv92 (97 km) - E6 (316 km) - E105 (9,5 km) - Rv886 (44 km), but about 510 km shorter by a route through Sweden and Finland
