On Sunday, the rules for quarantine hotels in Norway were changed. All those who can document that they have another suitable place for quarantine do not have to go to a quarantine hotel.
The most important change is that those who have a different purpose for the stay than work and can document that they have another suitable place of residence for the quarantine do not have to go to a quarantine hotel.
In order for a location to meet the criteria as a “suitable place to stay,” it must have a private room, access to its own bathroom, its own kitchen, and it must be possible to avoid close contact with others.
The traveler must present a confirmation that the place of residence meets the requirements.
The confirmation document can be downloaded from the government’s website.
In a press release, Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Mæland (H) stated that she hopes the rule change can make the journey home for Christmas somewhat easier.
“At the same time, everyone must remember to carry out the quarantine in line with the infection control rules,” Mæland noted.
