National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
  Norge har 10 dages indrejsekarantæne for alle indrejsende fra Danmark og Færøerne. Personer som er bosat eller har opholdt sig minimum 10 dage inden indrejse til Norge i Grønland er ikke omfattet af karantænepåbuddet. Rejser du fra en lufthavn i Danmark, vil du dog alligevel blive pålagt indrejsekarantæne på 10 dage. Dette gælder uanset, hvor du har bopæl eller har opholdt dig inden indrejse til Norge. Hvis du rejser til Norge skal du kunne dokumentere ophold på et passende karantænested ved indrejse i Norge. I modsat fald kan de norske myndigheder nægte dig indrejse. Ophold i telt, campingvogn eller hytte på campingpladser, hvor man deler toilet, køkken eller andre rum/faciliteter med andre end dine nærmeste medrejsende, accepteres ikke af de norske myndigheder som et passende karantænested. Du bør forud for din rejse sætte dig meget grundigt ind i de norske karantæneregler.   Du bør også orientere dig om andre lokale restriktioner forud for rejsen. Den danske ambassade i Oslo har de seneste oplysninger. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger.   Du bør løbende holde dig orienteret om udviklingen i Norge via den danske ambassade i Oslo, de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedierne.   Du bør også downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der indføres yderligere, større restriktioner i Norge, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve.   Hvis du rejser til Norge, bør du være ekstra forsigtig for at minimere risikoen for at blive smittet med coronavirus/COVID-19. Du udviser ekstra forsigtighed ved bl.a. at følge vores rejseråd i en tid med COVID-19.   Du kan læse mere om coronavirus/COVID-19 hos Sundhedsstyrelsen og Statens Serum Institut. Du bør altid følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd til forebyggelse af smittespredning.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
