Travelling from all other countries

If you live in most other countries outside the EU/EEA (including the US), and the country is not purple-rated, you are currently not permitted to enter Norway, unless one of the exemptions on this page applies to you.

Border crossings

Some travellers may experience a bit longer waiting times than normal on arrival at some airports and border controls in Norway, due to the need for testing and increased checks. Remember to arrive at the airport in good time before your departure. More information about flying to and from Norway is available at Avinor’s website.

Registration of arrival to Norway

Individuals entering Norway from an area with a quarantine obligation must provide all necessary information to the authorities. All persons with a registration obligation must therefore submit their own registration form here. One must also be able to provide confirmation of a suitable place to stay during the mandatory quarantine period.

The following are exempt from entry registration:
