​It is both important and expected that you follow the Norwegian recommendations on how to stop the coronavirus, and that you get tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

Stop the infection

The coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person – and through droplet transmission.  

How to prevent infection:

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and lukewarm water
  • Sanitize your hands with an alcohol-based disinfectant if soap and water is not available
  • Keep a distance of at least 1 meter to others 
  • Be on the alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath or other symptoms of COVID-19
  • If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might have COVID-19, isolate yourself from other people

Get tested if you are sick – call 116 117

You are required to call 116 117. You can also visit the webpages of the local government to find out if they offer additional testing services. 


Depending on where you travel from, you may have to be in quarantine for 10 days from the date you enter Norway. Find out if this applies to you on this map

If you have confirmed COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a person with COVID-19, special restrictions apply to you:
