Police at the airport announced 14 new positions to reduce waiting times at passport control, reported NRK news.

The wait at passport control has been up to three hours this weekend. Besides staffing problems led to the police post where travelers can be issued emergency passports, have been closed. Sunday was, however, the police post open again.

Ten of the new positions will be in place already from Monday, while the next four will be ready within a week.

Justice Minister Anders Anundsen is nevertheless not satisfied with how the staffing situation at the airport has been handled by the police.
– It is a situation that is completely untenable and that should have been resolved long ago, he said.
