Travel advice for arrivals to Norway

The Norwegian Government enacted a variety of new measures to prevent transmission of the coronavirus on March 12th 2020. These measures affect all people travelling to Norway.


Travel advice can be read in full on

The new advice includes the following:

  • Anyone who has been outside the Nordic countries are to stay in their homes for 14 days after arriving home to Norway, regardless of whether they have symptoms.
  • Travellers from countries outside the Nordic region who are not residents of Norway will be asked to return. The alternative for these travellers is quarantine. Travellers with symptoms will be isolated.
  • This means that everyone presently staying in Norway and who has been in a country outside the Nordic region in the past 14 days is to be quarantined.
  • This policy has retroactive effect and applies to all arrivals since Thursday 27 February.
  • The policy is in place until Thursday March 26th, but may be extended.


As the situation develops, policies and advice that also affect travellers to Norway may change rapidly. Stay updated on the latest developments and see the full extent of the measures on the NIPH website (Norwegian Institute for Public Health).
