Changes in travel advice for some Nordic regions

Published

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is advising against non-essential travel to the Swedish regions Blekinge and Södermanland, as well as the Finnish region Nyland (Uusimaa).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is advising against non-essential travel to the Swedish regions Blekinge and Södermanland, as well as the Finnish region Nyland (Uusimaa).


Based on the weekly assessment of the transmission situation for coronavirus, the Government has decided that these regions will change from yellow to red in the infection map for Europe. As a result, the travel advice will change. All travellers from these regions who come to Norway from Saturday 3 October at 00.00 a.m. must go into 10 days of quarantine. 

Press release from the Government (in Norwegian). 

Meanwhile, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health recommends removing quarantine upon arrival from the Finnish regiona Päijänne-Tavastland (Päijät Häme). The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has therefore issued an exemption from the travel advice for this region, which will change from red to yellow on the infection map for Europe.

The map shows the areas affected by quarantine upon arrival in Norway from the 3th October 2020. The Government's advice is to avoid all non-essential travel abroad. Red colour = high transmission and quarantine is required upon arrival in Norway. Yellow = increased risk but quarantine not required upon arrival in Norway. Striped areas = not evaluated or insufficient data about transmission, quarantine is required. Norway is marked as grey because it is not subject to the assessments for international travel.
