Pressemelding 02.07.2021: Det globale reiserådet oppheves for EØS/Schengen og enkelte land utenfor EU fra 5. juli

For reisende til Singapore fra Norge

Mandag 5. juli opphevet Utenriksdepartementet reiserådet for land i EØS/Schengen og Storbritannia. Reiserådet ble samtidig opphevet for enkelte land og områder på EUs såkalte tredjelandsliste, herunder Singapore og Taiwan.

Ambassaden gjør oppmerksom på meget strenger innreiseregler (korttidsbesøkende fra Norge har ikke mulighet til å reise til Singapore). Se UDs reiseinformasjon om Singapore og Taiwan/Kina.

Press release 05.07.2021:Global travel advice rescinded for the Schengen area/EEA and certain countries outside the EU from 5 July

For travellers to Singapore from Norway

On 5 July, Norway rescinded its official travel advice for the EEA/Schengen area and the United Kingdom as well as countries on the EU’s third country ‘safe list’, including Singapore and Taiwan.

Please be aware of very strict entry regulations (tourists are still not approved for travel to Singapore). Read here for MFA Norway’s travel information (only in Norwegian) for Singapore and Taiwan/China.

For travellers to Norway from Singapore

On 5 July Norway introduced a new colour code “purple” for safe third countries, including Singapore and Taiwan. Please see Helsenorge.no – International travels for the latest updates regarding entry regulations.

Some of the main regulations (as of 07.07.2021, please be aware that the regulations may change and that the Embassy cannot be held responsible for future changes):

Information about the COVID-19 certificate here.
  3. Vaccinated individuals with only one vaccination shot taken more than three weeks ago, may test themselves out of the travel quarantine 3 days or more after entry, provided that they can document their status in the Norwegian COVID-19 certificate and/or in a verifiable COVID-19 certificate that is connected to the EUDCC gateway [2].
