The global travel advice has been employed as a means of exercising infection control throughout the pandemic, alongside the quarantine requirements and restrictions on entry into Norway.
The health authorities will continue to review the infection situation in the Schengen area/EEA weekly, and the global travel advice will be updated on the basis of their findings. Currently, only Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland, as well as some areas in Finland, are excepted from the travel advice. For an updated overview of the relevant countries and regions that are excepted from the travel advice, see the Institute of Public Health’s map showing the Ministry’s travel information.
The infection situation and local restrictions can both change very quickly. Anyone who is considering travelling abroad should think carefully about whether it is necessary for them to travel, and make sure that they know what the situation is in the country they are planning to visit.
