Norway is open to more travellers

Everyone who has a valid residence permit in Norway or a valid visitor’s visa, or who is entitled to visit Norway without a visitor’s visa, can enter Norway.
Please note that due to the appearance of the Omnicron virus, the entry rules might change on short notice and that travellers from some affected countries might face stricter entry-, testing-, and quarantine rules.

COVID certificates in use in some parts of Norway
Some parts of Norway have seen an increase in infection this autumn. Both locals and travellers may therefore need to present valid COVID certificates at restaurants, events, museums and other public places and gatherings in some cities, regions, or municipalities. Face masks may also be mandatory in crowded places. The use of certificates varies from place to place, depending on the local situation at any time. Please keep yourself updated and respect local regulations. 

Registration of arrival to Norway

All travellers (including those who possess a valid COVID certificate) entering Norway must complete an entry registration form. Children under 16 are exempt. You will need to be able to present proof of entry registration for inspection on arrival.

I have a valid COVID certificate:

  • All travellers from European and other approved (purple-rated) countries who are fully vaccinated or who have documentation that confirms they have been infected with COVID-19 during the last six months, and who have valid, digital documentation (approved by Norwegian authorities) of this, do not need to quarantine or undergo testing.

If you don't have a valid certificate, the rules below apply:

Entry quarantine is required for the following travellers:

  • Travellers from red, dark red, purple and grey-rated countries (other third-party countries), remain subject to a duty to quarantine

You can quarantine for the mandatory period at a suitable location or at a quarantine hotel, if you so wish. You must also be able to provide confirmation of a suitable place to stay during the mandatory quarantine period, if this applies to you. During your quarantine, you should avoid close contact with others, except for the people with whom you are travelling. The cost of staying at a quarantine hotel is NOK 500 per night for both private individuals (adults) and employees.
