The Ministry of Justice and Public Security has made changes to the groups that are exempt from the requirement of a negative Covid-19 test on entry to Norway. These changes enter into force at midnight.

On Friday 6 November 2020, the Government announced the introduction of the requirement of a negative Covid-19 test when entering Norway. Foreign nations who cannot present documentation of such a test can be refused entry. This requirement applies to most foreign nations who are not resident in Norway. However, some changes were today made for groups with special needs. For further information, please refer to the revised circular relating to entry into force.
