​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.

Can I travel to Norway?

Not sure if you can enter Norway? Please check the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration's website for the latest information about travelling to Norway.

Travelers from countries and areas in the Schengen and EU/EEA can enter into Norway. If you live in a country or area with sufficiently low transmission you can enter Norway without having to go into quarantine. 

Those living in other countries and areas in the Schengen and EU/EEA can enter Norway, but are obliged to go into quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.

Quarantine policy is subject to ongoing evaluation, and will be updated as and when required.

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

To get tested, 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.


Many of those who are allowed to travel into Norway, may have to be quarantined for 10 days from the date they enter Norway. Find out if this applies to you by checking this map at

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

Documentation requirements for people with quarantine duty

People with quarantine duty must provide proof of residency for a continuous stay at one registered Norwegian address for the first 10 days after arriving in Norway. A hotel booking confirmation or a signed letter from a private host are examples of accepted documentation. For stays shorter than 10 days, you still need to provide documentation for the days you are staying in Norway. The documentation requirements do not apply to people residing in Norway.

Information hotline

If you have additional questions about the coronavirus, call the information hotline on (+47) 815 55 015.
