If you reside in an EU/EEA or Schengen country you will be able to enter Norway, regardless of citizenship. If you live in a country with a high risk of infection you must stay in quarantine when you travel to Norway.

If you live in a country with a low risk of infection you do not need to stay in quarantine when you travel to Norway.
