The government is introducing mandatory testing at the border for persons who have been to an area that necessitates quarantine upon arrival in Norway.
This will apply from Monday 18 January at 17:00 Oslo-time. This means that persons will no longer be permitted to pass testing centers at airports, ports or land border crossings on roads. They will also not be permitted to take a test in their home municipality. Effective from Monday, testing must take place at the point when they cross the border. Tests are free to take.
