Travel to Norway Summer 2021

Travel to norway Summer 2021

Boarders in Norway are open for foreign tourists and vaccinated people from Green EU countries.

It is not a general access for tourists to enter Norway, but it is allowed for all travelers from green countries, including tourists, to enter Norway. It is also possible for tourists traveling with the EU vaccine passport to travel to Norway, read more about this in the next section.

Note: Entrants from green countries must register before entry and must test at the border.

Color coding and re-open EU

On 5 July 2021, FHI expanded the number of color codes. The color codes are explained on the map. As of now, it keeps being aware that green = free entry and zero quarantine, and that all other colors mean entry restrictions and quarantine obligation. Remember that countries that are now green can be changed to red later, in the event of an infection flourishing in the country.

At https://reopen.europe.eu/en there is an updated travel advice for all EU and EEA countries. The site also contains correct information about entering Norway in English. Note that Norway still uses different threshold values ​​than the rest of Europe. This means that it is the map at FHI that applies.
