Timeline and information

The European Union had banned all non-essential travel from outside the Schengen zone for the next 30 days. Norway is part of Schengen and approved this new temporary measure. If you are not an EU-citizen, traveling to Norway will no longer be possible.

With the new measures in place, European leaders try to stop the spreading of the coronavirus.

Traveling between Schengen countries is still possible, however, Norway imposed an extra rule on top of this and also closed the borders for people coming from other EU-countries until at least April 13. This means that only Norwegians and people who work in the country are allowed into the country.

Norway also closed schools and urged its citizens to not gather with more than five people outside and that people maintain a social distance to others.
