DUE TO COVID-19 NORWEGIAN BORDERS HAVE BEEN CLOSED.
PLEASE CHECK BEFORE MAKING A TRIP TO SVALBARD THAT YOU WILL BE ALLOWED ENTRY TO NORWAY
From June 1st the Government opened for tourists to travel from mainland Norway to Svalbard.
From this date the general entry quarantine for travellers from mainland Norway was lifted.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all international travel that is not strictly necessary.
An exception is made for Denmark from June 15th onwards. You can travel freely in Norway.
At the same time, the authorities are trying to ease the restrictions:
Within June 15th, exemptions from the travel advice for the Nordic countries will be considered.
Exceptions already apply for Denmark from June 15th.
Within July 20th, exemptions from the travel advice for some nearby European countries will be considered.
This will be assessed in consultation between the foreign, health and justice authorities.
The travel advice is currently valid until further notice.
If tourists arrive in Norway, they may be turned away at the border and returned to their home country.
To travel in a way that will prevent you from spreading the infection means that you:
- Do not travel if you are ill.
- Maintain good hand and cough hygiene
- Keep at least 1 metre distance to those you do not live with
The advice will help prevent and limit the transmission and spread of covid-19.
Pay attention to the advice for infection control.
Keep in mind that the infection situation and the advice for infection control may change rapidly.
