The Norwegian government is ready to allow post-registration of corona vaccines administered abroad. Thus, Norwegians vaccinated abroad can now be released from the entry quarantine duty.

However, the vaccines must be approved by the EU Medicines Agency (EMA), and those vaccinated have to have a Norwegian personal identification number or D-number, the Ministry of Health and Care Services stated in a press release.

“Many people who have taken corona vaccines abroad will now be able to post-register the vaccine, get a green corona certificate, and thus get an exemption from or a shortened entry quarantine,” Minister of Health and Care Services Bent Høie (H) noted.

It has taken the Norwegian authorities some time to put in place a scheme in the national vaccine register SYSVAK to accommodate the post-registration, but the work is now completed. 

The registration can be done before traveling to Norway by requesting a video consultation from a doctor. Available vaccine documentation must be presented during the consultation. The doctor will make a discretionary assessment.

The consultation must be paid for by the individual in question.
