Entry rules do not apply to full vaccinations or those who have contracted coronavirus within the past six months.

Every Friday, the government updates the entry map based on an assessment from the National Institute of Public Health. This map is different EU infection map.

See the rules for the different regions below in the case.

It is clear that holiday travel increases the risk of infection upon import. This is why it is as strict as it is in Norway. We’re seeing the delta virus spreading, there’s a lot of contact between people in Europe, and most people are living fairly normal lives now without strict infection control measures,” says Espen Rostrup Nakstad, assistant director of health Espen Rostrup Nakstad, at NRK.

Can we tolerate more infections now that so many people have been vaccinated?

The big question is how many unvaccinated people get infected and what are the consequences. It really remains to be seen in many places. In the UK, around 5,000 people are admitted each week, a sharp increase from just a few weeks ago. Nakstad explains that the number of infections is much lower than it indicates when compared to last year.

Beware of the stops

If you are traveling from a green country, but stopping in a country with stricter quarantine requirements (orange, red, dark red), the entry rules from the country you are stopping in apply when you arrive in Norway.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) still advises against completely nonessential travel to countries outside the European Economic Area/Schengen and the United Kingdom.

People who come from countries with orange and red status at the border should be tested and isolated. Dark red states require quarantine in quarantine hotels.

You do not have to quarantine in a quarantine hotel if you are protected from the Corona virus. That is, he has either been fully vaccinated, or received a single dose of the vaccine, for three to 15 weeks after vaccination, or has contracted the Coronavirus within the past six months, according to Government.

Then the quarantine can be carried out in your home.
