Covid 19 - travel to Norway

The Norwegian Government has implemented extensive restrictions on entry into Norway due to the spread of COVID-19.

 

Restrictions on entry into Norway (COVID-19):

The Norwegian Government has implemented extensive restrictions on entry into Norway due to the spread of COVID-19. As a result, foreigners who do not hold a valid residence permit in Norway will be rejected at the border and refused entry into Norway under provisions of a Norwegian law relating to the control of communicable diseases. For the time being and until further notice, visas for visitors to Norway will not be granted.

The Norwegian Government is planning to allow people resident in the Schengen area/EEA to enter Norway from 15 July, provided that they live in a country or region where the level of infection is acceptable. From the same date, quarantine will no longer be required on entry from these countries and regions.  

 

People with Norwegian passports or residence/work permits who have arrived in Norway from a country not mentioned above must stay in quarantine at home for 10 days after arrival, regardless of whether or not you have symptoms. If you have symptoms, you must be isolated immediately.

 

All EU and European Economic Area (EEA) citizens with close family in Norway (grandparents, parents, children or grandchildren) can visit their family in Norway. If you arrive in Norway from a country not mentioned above, you must stay in home quarantine for 10 days after arrival, regardless of whether or not you have symptoms. If you have symptoms, you must be isolated immediately.
