COVID-19: Extraordinary entry rules to Norway have been lifted, but new entry measures apply when travelling
The entry restrictions introduced due to the corona situation have been lifted. All foreigners who have the right to entry according to the rules of the Immigration Act can travel to Norway now. You can travel to Norway if you:
- have a valid residence permit, or you have a right of residence in Norway
- have a valid visitor´s visa or entry visa to Norway
- have the right to visit Norway without a visa
This means that there are no entry restrictions to Norway due to the corona situation now, but there are requirements for registration and testing when you travel into Norway. You must familiarize yourself with these measures before entering the Schengen area. If you do not comply with all entry measures in force, you will be refused entry to Norway.
