The travel advisory, where the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advised against any unnecessary travel that is not necessary, is extended until October 1.
I was previously announced that the advisory would apply until the 20th of August.
-”The situation dictates that we continue the global travel advisory that advises against travel that is unnecessary to all countries. The world is in the middle of a pandemic. When I still say that we are far from a normal situation, it is because the infection situation is changing rapidly. We have observed an increasing level of infection in many countries.”, says Foreign Minister; Ine Eriksen Søreide (H).
The travel advisory will only be changed when the infection situation dictates.
Exceptions have been made for countries in the EEA/Schengen zone that meet the infection criteria. These are now described as yellow, and entry will not require quarantine upon arrival.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs points out that exceptions from the travel advisory is not an invitation for Norwegians to travel abroad.
-”Each person must think carefully whether it is necessary to travel.”, she emphasizes.
