The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office issues advice relating to the safety of a country or destination to travel to. If you travel against this advice, there could be serious ramifications for the cover provided under your travel insurance policy. Please read their advice and your travel insurance policy very carefully before booking and travelling.


NHS COVID Pass & Booster Doses

As of Friday 19th November, the NHS Proof of COVID Vaccination has been updated to demonstrate proof of third or other booster vaccinations. Please refresh your NHS COVID Pass after this date to ensure all appropriate doses are included on your NHS COVID Pass.

Currently, Norway does not require a third dose to be considered “fully vaccinated” (see below). However, if offered, you should strongly consider take up your third “booster” dose, to ensure swift compliance with any changes in international regulations.


Vaccine Eligibility 

In the eyes of Norwegian authorities and for the purposes of this overview, a person is considered fully vaccinated if they have received; 

           ·       A full course of any European Medical Association (EMA) approved vaccination against COVID-19. This includes all four vaccines regularly administered by the NHS in the UK.  

Your final dose must have been administered at least 7 days ago.

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements are subject to change at short notice. Please check the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s advice for Norway for the latest guidance.

Vaccinated – vaccinated travellers, or those who can demonstrate previous positive test within the last 6 months, may now travel to Norway and enter quarantine free. You must be able to prove your vaccination or recovery status via a QR code – this is provided as part of the NHS Proof of COVID vaccination/recovery, available online or via the NHS app.

Unvaccinated – unvaccinated travellers who have previous proof of a positive PCR test within the last 6 months may enter Norway. However, you must:

          -          Complete a self-declaration form no more than 72hrs before your arrival.

          -          You may be tested on arrival.

          -          You must self-isolated for 10 days in a “suitable location” (e.g. home or hotel), although a negative test after three days after entry will end your quarantine.

You may be asked to demonstrate suitability of your chosen “suitable location”. For those without this, government-run quarantine hotels are available.

Children under the age of 18 are exempt from quarantine.
