On Friday, the Norweigan government will submit a proposal to the Norwegian parliament (Storting) to extend the temporary law on entry restrictions for foreigners.

The temporary law lasts until June 1, 2021, but the new proposal would extend it to November 10, 2021.

“We still have a serious infection situation. It is therefore absolutely necessary to extend the legal basis for entry restrictions. 

“We all hope that the infection situation will soon improve, and we are continuously considering easing the entry restrictions,” Minister of Justice and Emergency Management Monica Mæland (H) noted.

Protecting public health

The law provides for entry restrictions to protect public health from the outbreak of COVID-19.

The bill also contains a proposal to extend temporary case processing rules in the Immigration Act to remedy the consequences of the coronavirus until November 10, 2021. 

These rules provide, among other things, authority to hold remote meetings for the Immigration Appeals Board.
