The Norwegian government decided to extend the strict entry restrictions until May 13.
The measures will be continued until further notice, but in the first instance up to and including May 12, the government stated on Tuesday.
“We are still in a serious infection situation. It is, therefore, necessary to extend the strict entry restrictions.
“We all hope that we continue to see a downward curve in the infection situation, and we are continuously considering easing the entry restrictions,” Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Mæland (H) said.
Mæland says that the reopening will take place gradually and in line with the reopening plan.
In practice, Norway closed its borders on January 29, but with certain exceptions.
Everyone who comes to Norway from what is considered unnecessary travel abroad must stay in quarantine hotels at their own expense for at least seven days.
