Norway accepts EU coronavirus certificates
Norway is now part of the EU’s solution for COVID-19 certificates, and Minister of Health Bent Høie expects that more foreigners will be coming to Norway.
Fully vaccinated and previous coronavirus patients with a valid coronavirus certificate can enter Norway without quarantine, test requirements, and entry registration.
“In Europe, there are many who have been fully vaccinated, especially pensioners, who love to travel to Norway” said Høie. “If they are fully vaccinated, they are most welcome, as long as they can document it with a digital COVID-19 certificate or a solution with a barcode that can be checked, he said.
The entry requirements currently apply to these countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Croatia, Iceland, Poland, and Latvia.
