Changes in Nordic region and Europe this week
Based on the weekly assessment of the transmission situation for coronavirus, the Government has decided that Iceland, Lithuania, Västerbotten region in Sweden and the regions of Central Finland (Keski-Suomi) and Päijänne-Tavastia (Päijät Häme) in Finland will change from yellow to red in the infection map for Europe. As a result, the travel advice will change. All travellers from these countries and regions who come to Norway from Saturday 26 September at 00.00 a.m. must go into 10 days of quarantine.
The categorisation of countries and regions as yellow will continue until further notice.
Norway is marked as grey because it is not subject to the assessments for international travel.
The changes will come into effect from Saturday 26 September at 00.00 a.m.
