Information about travel and coronavirus

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against non-essential travel to all countries. For now, this advice will remain in effect until 14 April.

The Foreign Ministry urges all Norwegian citizens who are travelling abroad to consider returning home as soon as possible, in a safe and calm manner, in consultation with their travel agency or airline.

The reason is the increasing spread of coronavirus internationally and the unpredictable and difficult situation faced by many travellers. 

The health authorities introduced new measures to combat coronavirus infections on 12 March. Norway’s Director General of Health advised against all leisure travel, both domestic and international. All travellers coming to Norway from any country other than Finland or Sweden are to undergo quarantine for 14 days, regardless of whether they have symptoms. This order has retroactive effect dating from 27 February.
