A total of 303 people were denied entry on the border with Norway last week. That is 49 fewer than the week before. Most expulsions were based on infection control regulations.
“Declining traffic and increased knowledge of new entry and quarantine rules have probably contributed to fewer people being expelled.
“But it is expected that traffic will increase closer to Christmas,” Tone Vangen at the Police Directorate noted.
A large proportion of people are expelled due to a lack of negative COVID-19 tests.
The vast majority, 267 people, were expelled on the border with Sweden in the Eastern Police District, while 18 were expelled from the Inland Police District.
