Key Points  

  • Quarantine requirements introduced for travelers arriving from Lapland, Finland 


The Norwegian government will introduce a 10-day quarantine requirement for travelers arriving from the region of Lapland, Finland beginning 13 Dec. 2021. Travelers arriving from this region, who can present a valid and verifiable COVID-19 vaccination certificate, will be exempt from the quarantine requirement. Travelers who cannot present a vaccination certificate but can present a negative PCR test result taken no sooner than three days after arrival may be eligible to finish the 10-day quarantine period sooner.  

What are the Changes? 

The Norwegian government will require travelers who do not hold a verified vaccination certificate to undergo a 10-day quarantine. Travelers who can present a negative PCR test taken after three days of quarantine may be released from the quarantine sooner.
