In order to limit import infection of the coronavirus (covid-19), foreigners' access to Norway has been tightened sharply. Only those non-Norwegian citizens who are residents of Norway are permitted to enter the country. This also applies to citizens of the EEA.
From March 29th persons, including Norwegian citizens and foreigners residing in Norway, who travel on an unecessary trip abroad, must spend the entry quarantine at quarantine hotels.
Mandatory testing, entry registration, quarantine, and quarantine hotels continue to apply to the few who can enter Norway (who are exempt from entry restrictions). For more information about quarantine and entry registration, click here.

If you experience these symptoms, stay at home and call your doctor or Legevakten (116 117) for instructions for how to be tested for coronavirus. You must stay at home until your results are provided. If you are a tourist in Øvre Eiker kommune, you must stay at your hotel/camping area and avoid contact with others while you wait for the test results. Do not use public areas such as restaurants, restrooms and/or similar - or contact the management at your hotel/camping to find a solution.
