In the future, Norway will follow a pan-European solution for requirements for entry quarantine.

From Monday, Norway will harmonize the country corona colors with the EU’s corona map, but the threshold values ​​for quarantine exemption will not change until July 5.

The information was revealed by Minister of Education and Integration Guri Melby (V) at the government’s press conference on Friday.

On July 5, the threshold for “green countries” in Europe will change. The Norwegian rules will be harmonized with the European recommendations.

Since last autumn, almost the entire map of Europe has been “red,” but that is about to change since infection rates in Europe are declining.

“This means that more and more Europeans can travel into Norway without quarantine, regardless of corona certificates and vaccine status,” Melby said.


She said that Poland, Romania, and several regions in Finland would be “green” on the color map from Monday. Iceland, Greenland, and Malta are already green.

“In the next few weeks, there will probably be a large number of other countries that will also fall below the threshold.”

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) will assess countries and publish the revised corona map.
