Movement restrictions

National movement restrictions: Free

Restrictive measures mandatory between 05 November 2020 to TBD

UPDATE 5 November 2020: recommendation that everyone in the coming weeks as much as possible must stay at home and limit social contact with other people. In private homes, gardens or cottages, one should not have more than 5 guests in addition to household members. If all the guests are from the same household, there can be several. Two families can meet even if they have many children.
The restriction that you should not have more than 5 guests does not apply to kindergarten or primary school cohorts.
Young people and adults who have been with friends and in other situations where there has not been a distance of one meter, should keep a distance of two meters to people in the risk group. Recommendations to avoid unnecessary domestic travel. Business trips that are considered necessary and trips to leisure properties that can be carried out without contact with others are excluded.
ONLY FOR OSLO, AS OF 10 NOV 2020:
– All social gatherings outside private homes are prohibited. Exceptions are funerals and burials.
– All leisure activities for adults are closed.
– All businesses where cultural and leisure activities take place are closed, with the exception of the library.
– Facemasks are required in taxis in the same way as in the rest of public transport. The following measures on facemasks continue:
mandatory for facemasks indoors in public places where it is not possible to maintain at least 1 meter distance; mandatory for facemasks indoors at restaurants for employees and guests in all situations where you do not sit at a table.
– Stores, shopping centers and the like must ensure that customers can be two meters away, and provide the necessary security.
– The number of contacts during a week should not exceed 10 people in social contexts. The exceptions are those in the same household, kindergarten and primary school cohorts and colleagues.

UPDATE 27 October 2020: in private homes, one should not have more than five guests who are not from the same household. You may have a visit from another family that is more than five. Children who go to primary school or kindergarten should be able to have a birthday or Halloween party with friends with whom they already spend a lot of time with. Everyone should be with fewer people in one week. At private events, the limit on the number of participants goes from 20 to 50.
SPECIFICALLY FOR OSLO:
– Mandatory with a face mask in public places where it is not possible to keep a distance of one meter.
– Mandatory to wear a face mask in restaurants when not sitting at a table.
– Ban on more than 20 people at indoor events without fixed seats.
– Avoid contact with more than 10 people a week.
– Home office is the main rule.

UPDATE October: in cities, some movement restrictions apply. For example, in Oslo they have mandatory use of facemasks on public transport when 1 metre distance can’t be upheld, closed alcohol-serving after a certain hour, more restrictive rules on events/gatherings than national guidelines. Facemask use is mandatory in Oslo on public transport and when 1 metre can’t be upheld. Children under 12 don’t have to and children under 2 should not wear it at all. Nationally it is only recommended on public transport, especially in the region surrounding Oslo.

UPDATE August:
On 7 August 2020 the government announced a tightening of the containment measures against Covid19 spread. Due to the recently observed increase in infection in society, the following is recommended:
– PUBLIC TRANSPORT: the number of passengers in public transport during rush hour must be reduced in relation to the normal situation in order for it to be safe for those who have to use public transport at that time. The government encourages everyone who has the opportunity to walk or cycle to work and school. Employers must facilitate that half as many use public transport, and state and municipal employers should lead by example.
– HOME OFFICE: it is recommended that employers facilitate the use of a home office 2-3 days per week for everyone who has the opportunity to do so. Shifted working hours are recommended for all employees who do not have to be at work during normal hours, and who do not have children of compulsory school age or kindergarten. Meetings can be held electronically. Home office days should be spread evenly over the different days of the week.
– USE OF FACE MASK: the government stated that face masks do not protect as well against the spread of infection as at least one meter social distancing. But in some situations it is difficult to comply with this rule; then a face mask can be a supplement. On behalf of the government, FHI is currently considering whether it may be relevant to use face masks in certain, specific situations. The government is waiting for a good and professional assessment before moving on to the question of using a face mask in different situations. The Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health will create campaigns on the correct use. More detailed advice will come on 14 August. The government already warned that people must be prepared for the fact that there may be recommendations on the use of bandages during rush hour on public transport. A recommendation for the use of a face mask in some situations in Norway will not be able to replace the general requirements of keeping at least one meter distance, washing your hands often and being at home if you are ill.

International movement restrictions: Partially banned

Restrictive measures mandatory between 09 November 2020 to TBD

UPDATE 5 November 2020 on quarantine and traveling:
– Business travellers who in the last 10 days before coming to Norway have stayed in areas with a particularly high level of infection, can no longer use the scheme with testing every three days, cf. the covid-19 regulations § 6 c. The main rule on entry quarantines will therefore basically apply to workers from these areas.
– For employees who can make use of the exception in § 6 c, changes have been made to the provision: employees who have the quarantine of leisure shall be tested every three days and be accommodated in private rooms for the first ten days in the country. The employer must facilitate distance to others when the employee is in leisure-time quarantine. The exception no longer provides an exemption for entry quarantine in leisure time.
– Travelers from red countries must present a certificate of negative covid-19 test when they arrive in Norway. The test must be taken less than 72 hours before entry. If the person does not present such a test, he or she may be refused entry. This will be implemented from midnight, night to Monday 9 November. The requirement shall not apply to Norwegians, persons domiciled in Norway or persons in transit. The requirement does not apply to people who regularly come to Norway from Sweden and Finland to work. The requirement applies to health personnel who commute to Norway and who have been outside Norway for more than seven days. Personnel in critical social functions may be exempted when necessary to avoid danger to life and health.
– Persons who come to Norway must have a permanent residence in the country, or the employer or client must provide a guarantee of a suitable place of residence upon arrival in Norway. Persons, including tourists and visitors, who do not have their own residence or employer or client in Norway must stay in quarantine hotels and test themselves during the quarantine period. This also applies to family members who come to visit relatives in Norway. The Norwegian Directorate of Health is commissioned to study how these requirements can be introduced. Until this is established, border control will be strengthened in accordance with existing regulations.

UPDATE 27 October 2020:
– Foreign workers from what the EU calls red countries will no longer be exempt from the quarantine obligation but must be quarantined for ten days.
– Other workers from abroad must test negative every three days and stay in solitary confinement for the first few days.

UPDATE October: international travels are open, but quarantine when entering from red countries or regions in Sweden, Denmark and Finland that are classified as red. Norway do not (yet) regionalise for other countries than Scandinavia and Finland. All countries outside Europe are red by default.

UPDATE September: the government now recommends to avoid unnecessary travel abroad (regjeringen.no). Anyone arriving in Norway from abroad shall be in quarantine for 10 days, with the exception of specified countries in Europe with sufficiently low transmission. These countries are marked in a map which is updated once a week. The Government decides which countries require ten days travel quarantine.

UPDATE August:
On 7 August 2020 the government announced a tightening of the containment measures against Covid19 spread. Due to the recently observed increase in infection in society, the following is recommended/decided:
– TRAVELS ABROAD: anyone arriving in Norway from abroad shall be in quarantine for 10 days, with the exception of specified countries in Europe with sufficiently low transmission (“green” countries in the reference map, updated by the national authorities every 14 days, at least). As of 8 August, the government recommends Norwegian citizens to avoid unnecessary travel abroad – also to green countries. The Norwegian Directorate of Health is now working on establishing testing centers at selected airports, border crossings and ports. Travelers arriving from red countries must wear a bandage when they arrive in Norway and are on their way home in quarantine. Currently, the “red” countries for Norway are: Portugal, Spain, Andorra, France, Czech Republic, Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Monaco and Switzerland, plus some regions of Sweden. Since increased travel activity has led to increased infection in Norway, the government advises against all unnecessary travel abroadand do not open for travel from countries outside the EU / EEA area immediately.

UPDATE July:
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs still advises against travel that is not strictly necessary to all countries for which no exceptions have been made. This travel advice is valid until 20 August. The exceptions from the travel advice are not an invitation to travel. Everyone should think carefully before they travel. Those planning a trip must familiarize themselves well with restrictions and infection control rules for the country you are planning to travel to. The development of infection in Europe is still confusing and can change rapidly. Each individual should think carefully about whether it is necessary to travel. If there is a new spread of infection and a country or region no longer meets the criteria, the entry quarantine can be reintroduced. This means that you can risk being quarantined when you return home, even if the country was green when you left.
From 15 July, the following countries and regions will be exempt from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel advice: Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Austria and the regions Blekinge, Kronoberg and Skåne in Sweden.
The exceptions from the travel advice apply to countries and regions that satisfy the National Institute of Public Health’s infection criteria. Based on the criteria, the countries are assessed every 14 days as “red” or “green”. The criteria can be adjusted if the development in the infection situation so dictates.
The countries in the EEA / Schengen area that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs still advises against travel that is not strictly necessary are: Bulgaria, Croatia, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania, parts of Sweden (see exceptions above) and Hungary.
For travelers residing in countries or regions within the EEA / Schengen area with too high a level of infection, or from countries that cannot provide sufficient documentation of the infection situation, rules on entry quarantine will also apply after 15 July. This means that it is where you live that is decisive, not what kind of citizenship you have. For example, an American living in Italy will now be able to travel to Norway, while an Italian living in the USA will not be allowed to come.

Other

Other: closed/cancelled

Restrictive measures mandatory between 05 November 2020 to TBD

New national restrictions have been announced on 5 November 2020. Further recommendations were also added. The government is adding several measures that municipalities in residential and working regions with high infection pressure should consider introducing. The Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health shall assess exactly which measures are relevant in different regions in the country, so that it is clear which measures are necessary to assess when the infection situation develops. Municipalities in a living and working region that introduce measures should do as much as possible and coordinated as possible.

UPDATE 7 May 2020:
Quarantine changes from 14 to 10 days. People who have been in close contact for up to 48 hours before a confirmed infected person had the first symptoms should be quarantined. Quarantine will continue if you have been in contact with infected persons less than two meters away for more than 15 minutes. Exemptions from the quarantine obligation for six months are granted for persons who have undergone infection with SARS-CoV-2.

Employers should ensure that employees can keep a distance of at least one meter throughout working hours.

This is especially true in the Oslo area and in other cities with pressure in public transport.

UPDATE 30 March 2020:
A number of measures regulating work hours have been changed, allowing for staff in critical positions, e.g., health-staff, to be exempt from normal regulations. Economic incentives are being implemented.

UPDATE 26 March 2020: Government of Norway has announced a shift in policy from trying to contain the virus to trying to beat it. The difference is subtle and will not be noticeable in the short term. For the long term however, it may include some form of restrictions for a period of up to 18 months until a sufficient number of the population are immune or vaccinated.

The parliament have given the Government additional powers to bypass normal procedures for passing of legislation, giving the Government powers that normally would belong to the Parliament. They have literally set aside the democratic principle of trias politica, separation of powers, which is unprecedented in Norway.

Municipalities should make sure that necessary services aimed at ensuring health care for vulnerable groups, e.g., elderly, continues. This includes necessary health care that takes place in peoples’ homes may continue but precautions against contagion should be taken.

Full Restrictions

  • Norway The Norwegian authorities have announced that travellers from Israel who have been vaccinated or recovered from the COVID-19 disease will now be able to enter the country restriction-free as their vaccination passport is now recognised for travel.

    “Israel is now connected to the EU’s solution for the corona certificate, which means that Norway accepts the certificates from Israel,” the statement of the Ministry of Health and Care Services of Norway reads.

    The decision to recognise the vaccination passports issued in Israel comes after the EU Commission announced that all travellers from Israel and six other third countries will now be able to travel to EU countries under the same rules as Europeans since they have been successfully connected to the EU Digital COVID-19 Certificate.

    Based on a press release issued by the Ministry of Health and Care Services on Friday, September 24, in line with the new rules, travellers arriving from Israel can now enter Norwegian territory without having to undergo the self-isolation requirement, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    However, it has been emphasised that in order to avoid quarantine, Israeli nationals must provide a valid vaccination certificate, which indicates that they have been immunised against the COVID-19 disease with one of the vaccines that Norway currently recognises.
    Additionally, except for travellers who have been fully vaccinated, the exemption from the quarantine requirement also applies to those who have recovered from the virus during the last six months.

    As for the entry rules, the authorities have highlighted that all vaccinated and recovered travellers arriving from Israel are also exempted from the entry form requirement, meaning that they do not need to fill an entry form before reaching the country. Moreover, they can enter Norway without having to undergo testing at the border.

    – Advertisement –
    Except for Israel, whose COVID-19 vaccination and recovery certificates will now be widely recognised in Norway, the country also already recognised certificates issued by another 14 countries outside the EEA/Schengen Area, which are as follows:

    Albania
    Faroe Islands
    Morocco
    Northern Macedonia
    Panama
    San Marino
    Scotland
    Switzerland
    Turkey
    Ukraine
    Vatican City State
    Northern Ireland
    England
    Wales

    Conversely, as for unvaccinated and unrecovered travellers arriving from Israel or any other third country whose COVID-19 certificate is recognised in Norway, the authorities have explained that they need to follow strict entry restrictions.

    List of exceptions (UDI.no)

    The testing, travel registration, quarantine, and quarantine hotel requirements will remain in force for travellers who are exempt from the entry restrictions.

    Vaccination does not currently affect quarantine requirements or test recommendations.

     

    Is a quarantine required?

    All travellers (including those who are resident in Norway) allowed to enter Norway from countries or regions that are defined as high-risk areas must complete a 10-day quarantine in a designated hotel. When you arrive in Norway from a high-risk country, you should travel directly to an appropriate place to stay during the quarantine period, preferably by private transport. If you need to use public transport, wearing a face mask throughout the journey is strongly required.

    The quarantine period may be shortened by taking a second PCR test no less than 7 days after arrival. If the result of this test is negative, the period of quarantine can end.

    The certificate must be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French or German. Foreign nationals who cannot document a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival can be refused entry to Norway.

    This requirement does not apply to Norwegians, people living in Norway, people in transit or people who frequently cross the border from Sweden and Finland for work purposes.

    The requirement does not apply to people who can document with an approved laboratory method that they have undergone COVID-19 during the last six months.

    Test upon arrival: Anyone who has stayed in an area with a quarantine duty during the last 10 days before arrival has a duty to be tested at the border crossing point upon arrival in Norway. The test must be either PCR or rapid antigen test. In the case of a positive rapid antigen test, the person must take a PCR test within 24 hours of arrival.

    The testing, travel registration, quarantine, and quarantine hotel requirements will remain in force for travellers who are exempt from the entry restrictions.

    Is a quarantine required?

    All travellers allowed to enter Norway from countries or regions that are defined as high-risk areas will have to quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel. The requirement to stay in a designated hotel does not apply to people who reside in Norway or own a home or holiday home in Norway, as well as a suitable place to stay during the quarantine period. When you arrive in Norway from a high-risk country, you should travel directly to an appropriate place to stay during the quarantine period, preferably by private transport. If you need to use public transport, wearing a face mask throughout the journey is strongly required.

    Is a coronavirus test required?

    Travellers coming from high-risk areas must provide a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 24 hours before entry. The certificate must be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French or German. Foreign nationals who cannot document a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival can be refused entry to Norway. This requirement does not apply to Norwegians, people living in Norway, people in transit or people who frequently cross the border from Sweden and Finland for work purposes.

    If you have visited an area that triggers quarantine duty during the last 10 days, you are required to take a test for the coronavirus upon arrival to Norway.

    The test must be taken at the airport or when crossing the border.

    Travellers from Great Britain, South Africa or Brazil are subject to specific rules for testing.

  • Norway Norway’s government may extend the European Union entry ban imposed on third countries citizens until November 10 this year, in order to protect Norwegian citizens from the Coronavirus and its new variants, the country’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security has announced.

    The ban was introduced for the first time in mid-March last year, amid the first wave of Coronavirus infections. However, the rapid spread of the virus pushed the country’s authorities to prolong it until June 1, 2021, due to COVID-19, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    “We are still in a serious infection situation. It is therefore essential to extend the legal basis for entry restrictions. We all hope that the infection situation will soon improve, and we are continuously considering easing the entry restrictions,” Norwegian Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Mæland (H) pointed out in this regard.

    In addition, the hospital district Länsi-Pohja in Finland will go from yellow to red on Europe’s infection map due to the Coronavirus situation; therefore, the Ministry advises citizens to avoid non-essential travel to this area.

    All persons who wish to enter Norway from Länsi-Pohja, from March 29 will be required to follow the 10-days mandatory quarantine rule.

    Is a quarantine required?

    All travellers allowed to enter Norway from countries or regions that are defined as high-risk areas will have to quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel. The requirement to stay in a designated hotel does not apply to people who reside in Norway or own a home or holiday home in Norway, as well as a suitable place to stay during the quarantine period. When you arrive in Norway from a high-risk country, you should travel directly to an appropriate place to stay during the quarantine period, preferably by private transport. If you need to use public transport, wearing a face mask throughout the journey is strongly required.

    The testing, travel registration, quarantine, and quarantine hotel requirements will remain in force for travellers who are exempt from the entry restrictions.

    Vaccination does not currently affect quarantine requirements or test recommendations.

     

    Is a quarantine required?

    All travellers allowed to enter Norway from countries or regions that are defined as high-risk areas will have to quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel. The requirement to stay in a designated hotel does not apply to people who reside in Norway or own a home or holiday home in Norway, as well as a suitable place to stay during the quarantine period. When you arrive in Norway from a high-risk country, you should travel directly to an appropriate place to stay during the quarantine period, preferably by private transport. If you need to use public transport, wearing a face mask throughout the journey is strongly required.

    Map with risk classification

     

    Is a coronavirus test required?

    Travellers coming from high-risk areas must provide a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 24 hours before entry. The certificate must be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French or German. Foreign nationals who cannot document a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival can be refused entry to Norway. This requirement does not apply to Norwegians, people living in Norway, people in transit or people who frequently cross the border from Sweden and Finland for work purposes.

    If you have visited an area that triggers quarantine duty during the last 10 days, you are required to take a test for the coronavirus upon arrival to Norway.

    The test must be taken at the airport or when crossing the border.

    Travellers from Great Britain, South Africa or Brazil are subject to specific rules for testing.

     

    Additional Travel Documentation

    Everyone travelling to Norway must complete the registration form prior to crossing the border. This also applies to Norwegian citizens.

    After completing the digital registration, you will receive a receipt which you must then present to the police at the border control. You cannot register your journey any earlier than 72 hours prior to the time of arrival.

    ____________________

    All travellers entering Norway from countries or regions that are defined as high transmission areas will have to quarantine for 10 days in a designated hotel. The requirement to stay in a designated hotel does not apply to people who reside in Norway or own a home or holiday home in Norway as well as a suitable place to stay during the quarantine period. When you arrive in Norway from a high-risk country, you should travel directly to an appropriate place to stay during quarantine, preferably by private transport. If you need to use public transport, wearing a face mask throughout the journey is strongly required. 

    Map with risk classification
    If you arrive from a “low-risk” (green or yellow) area, you are exempt from quarantine.
    If you arrive from a “high-risk” (red or striped) area, a 10-days quarantine is mandatory.
    Striped areas are not evaluated or there are insufficient data about the infection rates.

    Furthermore, people coming from high-risk or striped areas must provide a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before entry. The certificate must be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French or German. Foreign nationals who cannot document a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival can be refused entry to Norway. This requirement does not apply to Norwegians, people living in Norway, people in transit or people who frequently cross the border from Sweden and Finland for work purposes. Some exceptions may occur as well.
