Since the beginning of July, people from green countries in the EU/Schengen area can enter Norway. In this case, travellers must be tested on arrival at the border and fill out an entry form. Since 14 July, Norway accepts the Swiss Covid certificate.

Should Switzerland be considered a red country, we would like to point out that under certain conditions persons from red countries of the EU/Schengen area may also enter.

Because entry permission into Norway can be changed at any time, please make sure that you are still allowed to enter the country before you depart.
