The Foreign Ministry has almost 100 employees who help Norwegians who want to return home. – We see that the window for returning to Norway is getting smaller, says crisis manager Thomas Stangeby in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“Several countries have imposed very strict restrictions on aviation. Norway cooperates closely with the Nordic countries and other countries in Europe in facilitating flights from countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa where, due to restrictions, it is almost impossible to use scheduled flights,” says the Foreign Ministry’s crisis manager.

Since March 12, the UD’s operational center has received an average of 1,100 inquiries a day from Norwegians abroad, and their relatives in Norway.
