Those who can document their tenancy in Norway or who have a suitable place to stay can now avoid quarantine hotels.

This applies to those who can prove that the quarantine rules are followed – that they have, among other things, a living room and toilet, and that they can avoid close contact with others, Minister of Justice Monica Mæland (H) said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Thus, people who do not have a permanent residence in Norway but who want to stay in the country can avoid staying in quarantine hotels. 

They will still have to be quarantined for ten days.

Persons from the same household who travel together to Norway may be quarantined at the same place of residence.

The proposal from the government will be sent out on Wednesday with a 48-hour consultation deadline.
