Continuation of controls at the internal borders

On 16 March, Norway reintroduced controls at the internal borders as a measure to limit the spread of Covid-19. The Government has decided to continue these measures and will, in line with our obligations, notify the EU of this.

Owing to the rising level of infection in Norway and Europe, the Government has decided to continue the controls at the internal borders that were introduced in March. It is important to emphasize that these border controls involve checking whether travellers are permitted to enter Norway, and whether they can present documentation of a negative Covid-19 test taken no later than 72 hours prior to entry and fulfil the requirement of a suitable place to stay during the quarantine period for those covered by this requirement.

The regulations concerning who is permitted to travel to Norway are assessed continually and remain subject to change even though controls at the internal borders are now being extended.
