Norway Drops All Covid-19 Travel Restrictions

Norway has removed all of its Covid-19 related entry requirements for tourists. 

After almost two years of pandemic-related travel restrictions, Norway’s border is now open as it was before the pandemic began. Most restrictions within the country have also been lifted.

The Norwegian prime minister Jonas Gahr Støre announced that with immediate effect, there are no longer any requirements for vaccination certificates or testing when entering the country. Previous requirements to fill out a digital registration form prior to arrival have also been removed.

Speaking about his country’s restriction changes, Norway’s Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre said:

“We can ease the measures because omicron does not cause as serious a disease as previous variants. Even though the infection is rising, the proportion who end up in a hospital is low. We are well protected with the vaccine.”

The rule change means that if you had the right to enter Norway before the pandemic, you can now freely enter the country once again.  Travellers will not have to take a Covid-19 test or show proof of vaccination to enter Norway anymore.

Mask on Flights To Norway

Despite the changes, travellers should go ahead and get rid of their face masks just yet. Travellers will still be required to wear their face masks on flights to the country, and may also want to carry one around with them just in case they wish to wear it in busy places. 

While the removal of travel restrictions will delight tourists hoping to visit Norway, it’s the removal of everyday restrictions that is being celebrated within Norway.

Norwegians will no longer be required to wear face masks or conform to social distancing requirements in public places.
