The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is extending its recommendation against traveling abroad when it’s not strictly necessary to March 1.
“Even though we have been dealing with the pandemic for almost a year, we are still far from a normal situation, and the infection situation is changing rapidly,” Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide noted in a press release.
Exceptions will still be made for countries in the EEA and the Schengen area that have a sufficiently low spread of infection.
As of today, there are only a few such areas in Finland.
“It must be expected that there will be travel restrictions also when Easter comes around, and people should not plan for trips abroad at Easter,” Søreide said.
