The Norwegian government is tightening entry measures and border control. Travelers will soon have to register before they travel to Norway, and there will be requirements for testing.

From next Friday, everyone who travels to Norway will have to register via entrynorway.no. This also applies to Norwegian citizens. There will also be more testing at the border.

At the same time, the government will allow everyone to travel to Norway in the same way as before the pandemic, provided that they meet the requirements.

“Everyone who meets the Immigration Act’s requirements for entry will have the opportunity to do so. But there is still a basis for expelling foreigners who do not comply with the requirements, and Norwegians can also be fined or reported if they do not meet the requirements,” Minister of Justice Emilie Enger Mehl (SP) said at a press conference.

“When you register, you will receive a confirmation that you might have to show at the checkpoint. The police will carry out regular entry checks for countries outside Schengen and will be able to check whether the requirements for registration, testing, and quarantine have been met,” Mehl added.

Quarantine hotels will be offered to those who do not have a suitable place to stay during the entry quarantine.
