From 29 March the requirement to present a negative SARS-CoV-2 test prior to arrival to all travellers included citizens and foreign residents when travelling to Norway is being amended to require a test taken 24 hours prior to departure.
Anyone undertaking unnecessary leisure travel abroad must stay at a quarantine hotel when they return to Norway. In addition, the current strict entry restrictions are being extended, which generally means that only foreigners residing in Norway will be allowed to enter the country, initially up until 12 April.
From 29.12 the Norwegian Government is introducing new quarantine rules to contribute to more people being tested and to improve compliance with the quarantine rules. Travellers arriving in Norway from abroad may, at the earliest, end quarantine on day seven if they test negative for Covid-19 twice after arrival. The first test must be taken within three days of arrival, and the second, at the earliest, seven days after arrival.

From 2.01 2021 all people who travel to Norway, must take a Covid-19 test before entering the country. The test must be given immediately before the journey (maximum 24 hours before the start of the journey) and the person must show proof that the test was negative. The certificate must be in FR, DE, NOR, DEN, SWE or ENG.
If the passenger has a place of residence in Norway where the person entering the country can stay privately throughout the quarantine period, he does not have to stay in a quarantine hotel. This information on alternative residence must be provided in writing at the Norwegian border crossing point.

Travellers must register prior to their arrival in Norway and may only register their journey within 72 hours of their time of arrival.
