Norway ready to welcome visitors


I visited Norway many years ago and was impressed.

A friend was living in lovely Stavanger (above). It was so cold that the water at the edge of the North Sea was slushy and trying to freeze. 

But Norway is certainly on my list of places to visit again.

Think the northern lights and the midnight sun above the Arctic Circle; the world-famous fjords surrounded by spectacular mountains and glaciers; lovely cities like Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger and Tromsø.

Norway is opening up to tourists post-Covid and has now lifted restrictions on testing and quarantine.

There is no longer a requirement to test on or after arrival, and close contacts will no longer have to quarantine.

There is no longer testing at the border of Norway whether you come by land, sea or air. 

Rules for quarantining and isolation if you should test positive for Covid, or if you have been in close contact with an infected person while in Norway are also eased. 

If you test positive for Covid while you are in Norway, you must isolate yourself, but you can end the isolation after four days from when the symptoms appeared, and you have not had a fever for at least 24 hours. 

All adult travellers must have a Covid certificate and still register before entering the country.
