Published

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is extending the general travel advice from 1 October 2020 to 15 January 2021, and is still advising against non-essential travel for countries in the EEA/Schengen area where exemptions are not made.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is extending the general travel advice from 1 October 2020 to 15 January 2021, and is still advising against non-essential travel for countries in the EEA/Schengen area where exemptions are not made.


Until further notice, travel to Norway by people from third countries (i.e. countries outside the EEA / Schengen area) not covered by exemptions is not permitted.

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.

For an overview of the current status for countries in EEA /Schengen area and regions in the Nordic countries:

The map shows the areas affected by quarantine upon arrival in Norway from the 26th September 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.
