Nor­way about to open bor­ders for tou­rists from most EU coun­tries

The Nor­we­gi­an Minis­try of eco­no­mics and fishe­ries has com­mu­ni­ca­ted that tou­rists from most EU-coun­tries will be allo­wed to tra­vel to Nor­way again from 15 July. Today (10 July) the Nor­we­gi­an insti­tu­te for public health (Fol­ke­hels­e­insti­tutt) has publis­hed a map which shows the various Euro­pean coun­tries in green or red, respec­tively. Tou­rists from “green coun­tries” will be allo­wed to enter Nor­way from 15 July without spe­cial rea­son or per­mis­si­on. Citi­zens from Scan­di­na­vi­an coun­tries except Swe­den were alrea­dy allo­wed into the coun­try from 15 June.

This map is, howe­ver, to be updated at inter­vals of 14 days or at any time ear­lier if nee­ded. Tou­rists from coun­tries with hig­her or unclear infec­tion rates may be faced with tra­vel restric­tions such as qua­ran­ti­ne.

Not all EU-coun­tries have made it onto the “green list”: Por­tu­gal, Luxem­bourg, several coun­tries in sou­the­ast Euro­pe and most parts of Swe­den are bright red on the map. The examp­le of Swe­den shows that the Nor­we­gi­an government may take decisi­ons on a regio­nal level: tou­rists from several pro­vin­ces in south Swe­den (Ble­kin­ge, Kro­n­oberg and Skå­ne) may also tra­vel to Nor­way without restric­tions from 15 July, in con­trast to the rest of the coun­try.

Tou­rists from coun­tries out­side Euro­pe are cur­r­ent­ly gene­ral­ly not allo­wed into Nor­way unless they have clo­se rela­ti­ves or a part­ner in the coun­try, accord­ing to the Nor­we­gi­an government.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
