General information Coronavirus and travelling to Norway

Updated 5 November 2020
In the Government’s latest update on travel restrictions, it has been decided that people travelling to Norway from a “red” country must provide a negative corona test upon arrival. You must take the test no more than 72 hours before you enter the country. You can be denied entry if you cannot provide this documentation.
There are a few exemptions to this rule, for instance for Norwegians travelling home, people that have a place of residence in Norway, or people frequently travelling to Norway to work, for instance from Finland.
People who travel to Norway and do not have a place of residence must stay in quarantine at a hotel for 10 days after arrival. This includes people who visit family in Norway.
On the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH)’s official website, you’ll find a map and the latest information about quarantine regulations. It also includes information for workers from Sweden and other countries in the EU/EEA/Schengen area that arrive in Norway. The page will be updated at least every second week.
When travelling in Norway, you are encouraged to pay with a credit or debit card instead of cash to help reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. If you have a contactless-enabled card, this is the best thing to use as it allows you to complete a purchase without touching the payment terminal at all. Note that some shops, restaurants and tour operators do not accept cash payments at the moment.
Please notice that both national and local rules and regulations related to the coronavirus and travelling in Norway change frequently and on short notice. All travellers, both international and domestic, are therefore encouraged to seek out the most updated information by visiting the relevant websites. You should also follow precautionary guidelines, such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing, and respect regulations in place.
Due to the corona situation, there might be restrictions in the Norwegian ski resorts this winter. Do not visit our resorts if you feel unwell or are in quarantine. Make sure you read up on Fnugg’s corona measures in Norwegian ski resorts before you start planning your ski holiday.
