Travelers coming to Norway
New entry requirements make it easier
Ninety-six-thousand travelers without COVID-19 passports came to Norway the first week after travel regulations eased up July 5.
Everyone not fully vaccinated must register upon arrival. On average, 13,813 travelers registered each day, according to the Directorate for Civil Protection and Emergency Planning.
“We have tested four times as many people as in previous weeks,” said the head of the test station at Svinesund, Jostein Stø.
After the easing of the restrictions, 15,000 people entering Norway were tested. Because of the long lines, some Norwegians who had already received their first vaccine dose were sent on to be tested locally.
