General information Coronavirus and travelling to Norway

Norway is open to more travellers from all over the world. It is quite easy to visit us if you have a digital, valid COVID certificate (by EU/UK/Schengen standards). With a valid certificate, you don't have to quarantine, but you will have to take a test on arrival or within 24 hours after arrival. 

All visitors must register online prior to entry.

Norway has lots of space! Spectacular outdoor adventuresski slopes, and plenty of indoor kos await!

It is still quite easy to travel to Norway if you possess a valid, digital COVID certificate approved by the EU (documenting that you are fully vaccinated or have been infected with COVID-19 during the last six months). It's also easy to bring your family. Below, we have listed important information you need to know before you go. 

These COVID-certificates are valid in Norway.

Everyone who has valid visitor’s visa, or who is entitled to visit Norway without a visitor’s visa, or valid residence permit in Norway, can enter Norway. Please note that you still might need to quarantine if you do not possess a digital, valid, COVID certificate approved by EU standards
