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 Ministry of Foreign Affairs is extending its global advice against non-essential travel to all countries with the exception of the EU/EEA countries, Switzerland and the UK. In addition, the advice against non-essential travel no longer applies to certain countries and regions on the EU’s list of epidemiologically safe third countries, i.e. non-EU/EEA countries. The global travel advice will apply until 1 October 2021.
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.
