The foreign delegation that has been invited to Norway for the award ceremony of the Nobel Peace Prize will be exempted from entry quarantine. The exception will apply to 15-20 people.

The Norwegian Nobel Institute has applied for an exemption from the entry quarantine for the foreign delegation invited to Norway in connection with the award that will be given to the World Food Program.

The Norwegian Directorate of Health and the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) believe that an exemption can be granted from the quarantine obligation and consider that the risk of infection is minimal. 

The Norwegian government decided to follow their advice.

The latest Nobel Peace Prize winner has been helping the world’s poorest for almost 60 years, an effort that has been particularly important during the corona crisis.

The UN’s organization, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in early October, helps almost 100 million people in more than 80 countries worldwide every year.

The award ceremony will take place on December 9-11 in Oslo.
