All travel to the five countries is discouraged by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs due to the dramatic increase in coronavirus infection in India.
“The situation in India and the other countries is very worrying. For the sake of the security of individuals, the risk of importing infection to Norway, and putting a further burden on the countries’ health care, we advise against all travel there,” Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide (H) in noted a press release.
The corona situation in India is very demanding, and the country registers 2,700 corona deaths daily.
The Foreign Ministry adds that they have little or no opportunity to provide consular assistance to Norwegian citizens in these countries.
The measure will take effect at noon on Wednesday.
