If traveling to England, travelers may apply for the 'Test to Release' scheme to be tested on the fifth day after arrival and be relieved from self-quarantine early, if the result is negative. Those with a positive result will be required to self-isolate for a further 10 days.

🛡️ Travel safety for Norway

Exercise a high degree of caution

Norway’s entry restrictions depend on the colour-code of COVID-19 risks in the country that you’re travelling from. These colour-codes change frequently. Only citizens and residents of EEA countries, UK, Switzerland or purple-listed countries may enter. You must register within 72 hours prior to arrival in Norway if coming from a country or area that is subject to quarantine, unless you have a valid EU COVID certificate. If you're arriving from areas that are subject to quarantine, you must take a test on arrival unless you've recovered from COVID-19 or are fully vaccinated. You must quarantine if you travel from high-risk countries. Exemptions apply. See 'Travel'. We now advise: Exercise a high degree of caution in Norway due to the impacts of COVID-19.
