The Progress Party (FRP) leader, Siv Jensen, believes that the strict entry measures that were introduced on Wednesday must be as short-lived as possible.

“My advice to the government is to spend the next two weeks putting in place mandatory testing that is reality there, and that works,” Jensen said on Thursday morning.

On Wednesday, the Norwegian government introduced the strictest travel restrictions for travelers coming to Norway since the pandemic began

Only those who are taking a “necessary trip” to Norway are allowed to enter. That means, among other things, that the door is closed to most working immigrants and many girlfriends.

“We will not sit and wait for 14 days. These days must be used to look at the entry system in connection with the new, more contagious variant,” Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) promised.
