Non-vaccinated travelers from “green” countries that come to Norway have to get tested at the border

If you arrive in Norway from a “green” country, you will not be quarantined, but you will still have to test for COVID-19 at the border if you are not fully vaccinated.

People who had coronavirus during the last six months also don’t have to get tested.

“This applies regardless of which country they come from. Other people who come from ‘green’ countries must test themselves at the border and register upon entry,” State Secretary Saliba Andreas Korkunc at the Ministry of Health and Care Services told news bureau NTB.

Although large parts of Europe will be “green” from Monday, the spread of the more contagious delta variant worries Norwegian authorities. 

Unvaccinated people and those who have only received the first vaccine dose are prone to infection – even if they come from “green” countries.

“Therefore, the government has decided that those who come from ‘green’ countries will be tested at the border. We have a lot to gain from postponing the spread of the delta variant in Norway. Among other things, more people will be vaccinated in the meantime. But of course, we make continuous assessments,” Korkunc added.
