Information about travel restrictions to Norway

As of 25 September 2021 there will be a gradual lift of restrictions on entry to Norway. There are no longer any travel restrictions for people travelling to Norway from EU/EEA countries. 

Fully vaccinated people with a valid Covid certificate and those who have had COVID-19 in the last six months can travel to Norway and will not have to follow any additional measures. See definition of fully vaccinated here

If you are not vaccinated and have a valid Covid certificate or have had Covid-19 the last 6 months, you will have to follow the following measures when travelling to Norway:  

Travel registration 

You have a duty to register  yourself  when you travel into Norway. Everyone who crosses the border into Norway from areas with a quarantine duty ("red countries / areas"), including Norwegian citizens, must complete a travel registration form before arrival. 

You can do this digitally here or in paper form here. You cannot register your journey digitally any earlier than 72 hours prior to the time of arrival. If you have questions or require assistance in connection with the registration, please call +47 33 41 28 70. This service is operated by the Government. 

Mandatory testing at the Norwegian borders

Anyone who has stayed in an area with a quarantine duty during the last 10 days before arrival has a duty to be tested at the border crossing point upon arrival in Norway. There are some exemptions from the requirement, including for fully vaccinated people and those who have had COVID-19 in the last 6 months.

People who have been tested with a rapid antigen test must wait at the test station until the test result is available. Tests are free of charge. 

Travel quarantine

If you travel from a "red" country, you will have to enter travel quarantine in your own home or another suitable place of residence. You can take a PCR test after 3 days and exit the home quarantine when a negative result is confirmed. See more information about travel quarantine here

Children under 18 years are excempt from travel quarantine. 

More about exceptions to the rule can be found here.
