Plan your trip: Coronavirus and travelling to Norway

Capture 2

Anyone arriving in Norway from abroad shall be in quarantine for 10 days, with the exception of specified countries in Europe with sufficiently low transmission.

If you want to travel to Norway, note that you may have to stay in quarantine for 10 days after arrival. Exemptions are given upon arrival in Norway from areas in the Nordic countries and other EU/EEA/Schengen countries with sufficiently low transmission. Norway is not yet open for travellers from countries outside of the EU/EEA/Schengen area.

On the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH)’s official website, you’ll find a map and list of which countries and regionsthat are exempt from quarantine. It also includes information for workers from Sweden and other countries in the EU/EEA/Schengen area that arrive in Norway. The page will be updated at least every second week.

If you are travelling to Norway, you may also get the opportunity to get tested for the coronavirus (for free) upon arrival, as test centres will be established at several airports, border crossings, and ports.

When travelling in Norway, you are encouraged to pay with card instead of cash to help reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. If you have a contactless-enabled card, this is the best thing to use as it allows you to complete a purchase without touching the payment terminal at all. Note that some shops, restaurants and tour operators do not accept cash payments at the moment.

Please notice that both national and local rules and regulations related to the coronavirus and travelling in Norway change frequently and on short notice. All travellers, both international and domestic, are therefore encouraged to seek out the most updated information by visiting the relevant websites. You should also follow precautionary guidelines, such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, and respect regulations in place.
