General information Coronavirus and travelling to Norway
Travellers from the EU and some other countries outside the EU who possess a valid Covid certificate are allowed to enter Norway without having to quarantine, provide negative test results, or register their entry. Travellers from green European areas/countries are also allowed to enter Norway, but need to comply with certain requirements. See important details below.

Entry from Europe and nearby countries
Entry from green areas in Europe
If you reside in a green area or a country in most of Europe, you can also enter Norway without having to quarantine or take a test before arrival (although you will need to take a mandatory test at the border). For this to apply, you need to have stayed in a green area for the last 10 days prior to entering Norway.
Important information about travellers coming from green areas and how they can travel to Norway.
See which areas are green, orange, red, dark red and purple, and read more about entry, quarantine, duty to register on arrival, and testing rules on The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH)’s official website. Changes to colour ratings are usually announced on Fridays and new regulations take effect at midnight on the following Monday.
Please note that colour ratings can change at short notice if there is an outbreak or if the virus situation changes.
Travellers may experience longer waiting times than normal on arrival at airports and border controls in Norway, due to the need for testing and increased checks. Remember to arrive at the airport in good time before your departure. More information about flying to and from Norway is available at Avinor's website.
Registration duty on arrival to Norway
To help with coronavirus tracking and tracing, most travellers who do not possess a valid COVID certificate will be required to register their entry to Norway on the Norwegian government’s website before arrival. If you do not wish to register online, you can submit a form to the police at the border.
Entry from non-green areas and countries outside Europe
If you live in an area that is not rated green, or arrive from most other countries outside the EU/EEA, you are currently not permitted to enter Norway unless you possess a valid EU COVID certificate or an other type of approved certificate, or if one of the exemptions on this page applies to you.
From September 12, close family members and those in an established relationship, who arrive from a "purple" country (EU's selected third countries) outside EU/EEA may be permitted to enter Norway in certain circumstances.
Travellers who are permitted to enter Norway from areas that are exempt or who travel via non-green areas (including transit or by public transportation), and who don't possess a valid EU COVID certificate or other approved certificate, must quarantine at a quarantine hotel or at an approved location.
If you are arriving from or have visited an area requiring quarantine during the last 10 days, please see more detailed information about the rules for quarantine and testing upon arrival.
The cost of staying at a quarantine hotel is NOK 500 per night for both private individuals (adults) and employees.
If you are not required to stay at a quarantine hotel, it is important to remember that you are still required to complete your quarantine at a suitable location. During your quarantine, you should avoid close contact with others sharing the space, such as family members.
Please be aware that both national and local rules and regulations related to coronavirus and travelling in Norway may change frequently and at short notice. All travellers, both international and domestic, are therefore encouraged to seek out the most up-to-date information by visiting these relevant websites. It is recommended that you continue to follow precautionary guidelines, such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, and abide by valid local regulations.
