The U.S. CDC vaccine card is not accepted as proof of vaccination upon entry to Norway. If you wish to be counted as a vaccinated person upon entry, your vaccine must be registered in one of the following registries: the Norwegian, Swedish or Danish registries which has a certificate with a QR code that can be verified by the Norwegian authorities, or a COVID-19 certificate following the EU rules for digital corona certificates. The Norwegian government can only advise on how to register the vaccine in the Norwegian system.
