The restrictions on entry to Norway will be continued until April 7. Most restrictions will probably be extended even after that.

“Strict entry rules will also be continued after April 7, but we will look at whether we can open up for a few selected groups by that date,” Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Mæland (H) said at a press conference on Friday.

The entry restrictions that came into force on January 29 mean that only people with necessary purposes can travel to Norway.

Furthermore, Mæland announced that everyone who has been on holidays abroad will have to quarantine in a hotel in Norway until they have received a negative coronavirus test.

That can happen at the earliest on day three of the quarantine.

However, there will be some exceptions to the quarantine hotel requirement. These can include people who have been on necessary trips, people with minor children, people traveling due to the birth of their child, people visiting dying or seriously ill close family, and people participating in the funeral of a close family member.

The quarantine rules themselves will remain the same as before. The quarantine is still ten days. It can be shortened to seven days if a negative test is received.
