The government is to extend the tightened restrictions on entry into Norway that were introduced on 29 January 2021 until further notice, in the first instance until the end of 12 May.
‘We remain in a serious infection situation. This means it is necessary for us to continue to apply our tightened restrictions on entry to the country. We all hope that we will carry on seeing a downward trend in infection rates, and we will continue to review entry restrictions on an ongoing basis. The re-opening of our borders will take place gradually and in a controlled manner in accordance with the government’s plan for the re-opening of society as a whole,’ says Monica Mæland, Minister of Justice and Public Security (Conservative).
