Travel and border information for Norway

Information in Norwegian / English

General travel advice & restrictions from and to Luxembourg remain in force

Norwegian authorities continue to advise against non-essential travel to all countries (except specified countries in Europe, see the map below). Luxembourg is currently not on the list of exempted countries, and therefore non-essential travel to and from Luxembourg is still advised against. Anyone arriving in Norway from Luxembourg shall be in home quarantine for 10 days. The list will be updated at least every fourteen days.

The rules for entry to Norway for esential travels and other rules regarding immigration can be found on the website of the The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration. You can find answers to frequently asked questions regarding entry to Norway, your application for residence, visa, family immigration and work.

From 15th June 2020, exemptions from quarantine duty were introduced for travel in the Nordic countries, and from 15th July, there will be exemption from areas in EU/EEA/Schengen with arrival in Norway from countries with sufficiently low transmission. These areas are marked in green in the map below and will be updated every 14 days.

Please note that per 10 July, Luxembourg is not exempted from these restrictions


Criteria for evaluating which areas have sufficiently low incidence in EU/EEA/Schengen area

The requirements for entry quarantine do not apply for travellers who are resident in countries in the EU/EEA/Schengen area with fewer than 20 confirmed cases per 100 000 inhabitants during the last two weeks (evaluated on a national level), and fewer than 5 per cent positive tests on average per week over the last two weeks. 

In addition there is a comprehensive assessment of the countries, based on trends in infection rate ands other relevant information. 

Assessments are made on a regional level when it is possible for health authorities to make assessments based on evaluations on the infection burden in each region. Currently, this only applies for the Nordic countries.

These criteria are set by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
