Changes in travel advice for Estonia and some Nordic regions

Published

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is advising against non-essential travel to Estonia, the region of Södra Savolax (Etelä-Savo) in Finland, as well as the regions of Zealand and North Jutland in Denmark. This means that all of Denmark becomes red.

Based on the weekly assessment of the transmission situation for coronavirus, the Government has decided that these countries and 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 countries and regions who come to Norway from Saturday 19 September at 00.00 a.m. must go into 10 days of quarantine. 

Meanwhile, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health recommends removing quarantine upon arrival from Iceland and Liechtenstein. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has therefore issued an exemption from the travel advice for these countries, which will change from red to yellow on the infection map for Europe.

The same applies to the regions of Kalmar and Blekinge in Sweden, as well as the Kajanaland (Kainuu) region in Finland, which also change from red to yellow on the map.

Today, the NIPH has recommended a continued ten day quaranteen for travellers from Poland to Norway. This is due to a rise in transmission of the corona virus the past days, frequent travelling to Norway from Poland and several cases of import transmission lately.

Norway is marked as grey because it is not subject to the assessments for international travel.

The map shows the areas affected by quarantine upon arrival in Norway from the 19th 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..
