The requirement for quarantine hotels for travelers from Spain, Monaco, and Andorra is being lifted, the Norwegian Ministry of Health stated on Friday.
No new entry restrictions or quarantine requirements will be introduced this week, the government announced on Friday. At the same time, there will be changes for some countries and regions that will apply from Monday.
For Åland in Finland, entry restrictions and quarantine requirements are also being lifted.
Spain, Monaco, and Andorra have changed from “dark red” to “red” on Norway’s infection map, so the requirement to spend the quarantine period in a quarantine hotel will be abolished.
Corsica, Crete, and a number of other Greek islands will remain “dark red” on the map and require quarantine hotel stays.
The EU’s infection control agency (ECDC) updated its infection map on Thursday, and that map forms the basis for Norwegian decisions.
People who come to Norway from an “orange” or “red” region have to, among other things, go into entry quarantine. However, this does not apply to fully vaccinated people or those who had coronavirus in the last six months.
When a country is “dark red,” travelers must also carry out parts of the quarantine at quarantine hotels.
However, Cyprus and the United Kingdom are still “dark red.”
