The requirement to present a negative SARS-CoV-2 test prior to arrival when travelling to Norway has been amended to require a test taken 24 hours prior to departure instead of 72 hours.
Furthermore, all persons who have been to the UK, South Africa, Ireland, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal and Brazil, must undergo a PCR test at the Norwegian border. Additionally, persons who have been in these countries between 15–25 January must take a PCR test as soon as possible. Any positive result from a rapid Covid test taken at the border must be followed by a PCR test in the case of all travellers.
The quarantine rules are being tightened and will now apply to arrivals from all countries, with fewer exemptions in place and increased requirements in terms of testing.
