Norway has on 24 July reinstated restrictions on the entry of passengers from Spain and Andorra due to the covid-19 pandemic, having decided to maintain such measures in relation to Portugal.

The decision of the Nordic country means that people coming from Spain or returning from Spanish territory, a very popular tourist destination among Norwegians, will now have to fulfil, from 00:00 (local time) on 25 July, a quarantine of 10 days when entering Norwegian territory.

In recent days, Spain has seen a strong appearance of new outbreaks of infection for the new coronavirus, which has already forced, in certain specific regions, to retreat in the strategy of deflation.

Norwegian restrictions have also been restored for Andorra, a small territory between France and Spain.

Portugal, Luxembourg, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria remain destinations with travel restrictions.

The Oslo authorities decided to remove Hungary from this list.

The Norwegian Government has also increased the number of regions in Sweden to seven, including the border county of Värmland, for which travel is no longer officially advised against, thereby lifting the requirement for quarantine.

The Swedish capital, Stockholm, is the exception, remaining a restricted destination.

Norway has recorded a total of 9,085 cases of infection with the new coronavirus to date, including 255 deaths.


Can I travel to Norway at the present situation or not? Is there any travel restriction because of Covid-19? I would be grateful for your great support. Thank you
