The Norwegian border is finally open for all

Published on : Thursday, January 27, 2022

Today marks the first day since early 2020, where the Norwegian border is open to all visitors from around the world. Due to COVID-19, the Norwegian government had to shut its borders and demand self-quarantine for all travelers without the EU COVID certificate. This practice ended at midnight, and now travelers from outside the EU are also free to visit Norway without a 10-day quarantine period.

For Norway, this is great news. A joint Norwegian travel industry hopes this latest change in guidelines will have positive consequences for the entire tourism industry, as international guests now finally are able to visit again.

Acting director for Visit Norway, Audun Pettersen, is excited about the border re-opening:
“Welcome back! We have waited so long for this day to come, and we have really missed our visitors from around the world. Finally, people can start to plan their vacations and travel to Norway again. This means so much to us and the entire industry.”

Travelers who come to Norway will still need to test and register upon arrival. People who arrive without documentation, such as a corona certificate, full vaccination or proof of having had covid-19, will need to document a negative test-result taken before arriving in Norway.
