In less than three weeks citizens of the Schengen and EEA countries can travel to Norway without having to go into quarantine upon arrival. Norwegians can also travel freely to the same countries. This was announced in a government press conference yesterday.

– From 15 July, we are changing our travel advice for countries in Europe with acceptable levels of infection. The travel advice will be changed for countries that are excepted from the rules on quarantine on entry to Norway, that is countries that meet the criteria set by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, said Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Søreide.

These are the criteria:

  • The region must hav less than 20 new infections pr. 100 000 population on average the last two weeks.
  • The region must have fewer than 0,5 new COVID-19 intensive care admissions pr. 100 000 population on average the last two weeks.
  • The share of positive COVID-19 test results must be below 5 percent.


The general infection control advice from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health will apply to anyone visiting Norway for an unspecified period of time. Read the advice here.

As of today, Germany and Holland will be on the list. Travel to/from Denmark has already been opened. Sweden is closed until the infection rate decreases.
