Veøy is a former municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1838 until 1964. It initially consisted of all of the present-day Vestnes Municipality, as well as the southern part of Molde Municipality and the northern part of Rauma Municipality. Vestnes Municipality was only part of Veøy for a few months in 1838 before it was made into a separate municipality. In 1964, the municipality was split between Molde and Rauma municipalities. Veøy Municipality was named after the island of Veøya, where the main church for the municipality ( Old Veøy Church) was located.
