The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is maintaining its global advice against all non-essential travel to all countries. This advice currently applies until 15 January 2021. Exceptions have been made for countries and regions in the Nordic region and in the Schengen area/EEA that meet the criteria for infection levels set by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The infection situation and local restrictions can change very quickly. Anyone considering a trip abroad should think carefully about whether it is necessary to travel. If you are a Norwegian citizen in need of urgent or special assistance, you should contact the nearest embassy or the Foreign Service Response Centre by phone on +47 23 95 00 00 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. We recommend that Norwegian citizens who travel abroad register their trips in the travel information portal, www.reiseregistrering.no, and update the information as necessary (service in Norwegian only).
