Nor­way opens for tou­rists from 15 July

Nor­way wants to open bor­ders for tou­rists from Euro­pe (Schen­gen area/European Eco­no­mic Area) out­side Scan­di­na­via from 15 July. In a press release, the Nor­we­gi­an government exp­lains that the­re will still be restric­tions: The Nor­we­gi­an Fol­ke­hels­e­insti­tutt (aut­ho­ri­tiy for public health) will moni­tor the Coro­na deve­lo­p­ment in rele­vant coun­tries and regi­ons. Tou­rists from are­as with SARS-Coro­na­vi­rus-2 (“Coro­na”) infec­tions abo­ve a cer­tain thres­hold will have to stay in qua­ran­ti­ne for 10 days in Nor­way. Tou­rists who need to stay in qua­ran­ti­ne and who want to tra­vel to Spits­ber­gen have to to their qua­ran­ti­ne on the Nor­we­wi­an main­land and can only tra­vel fur­ther on to Spits­ber­gen when they have done their time.

Also tou­rists from coun­tries who do not moni­tor the deve­lo­p­ment appro­pria­te­ly or who do not publish rele­vant data will have to expect such restric­tions.

The Fol­ke­hels­e­insti­tutt publis­hes a map that shows coun­tries in green or red. Tou­rists from coun­tries shown in green will be able to enter Nor­way without qua­ran­ti­ne from 15 July (ear­lier for Scan­di­na­vi­an tou­rists). Cur­r­ent­ly, the map shows only Scan­di­na­via. An updated ver­si­on inclu­ding all Euro­pean coun­tries that are part of the Schen­gen area or Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area is expec­ted for 10 July. It will be updated at least every 14 days.

Cur­r­ent­ly, only peop­le with spe­cial rea­sons such as clo­se fami­ly rela­ti­ons­hips, work or pro­per­ty may enter Nor­way under cer­tain regu­la­ti­ons (unless you are Scan­di­na­vi­an but not Swe­dish).
