Norway tightens rules for Dutch tourists

Norway will tighten the corona


from Monday for, among others, Dutch travelers who want to visit the Scandinavian country.

All travelers who are not fully vaccinated are required to be quarantined, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports.

Travelers who received the Janssen vaccine more than three weeks ago or who received their second shot with a different corona vaccine more than a week ago are considered fully vaccinated for Oslo.

Visitors who are not fully vaccinated must register before arriving in Norway and present a negative PCR test and be quarantined for a period of ten days.

Of these, the first three days must be spent in a hotel assigned by the Norwegian government.

After a negative PCR test on day four, it is in principle possible to complete the quarantine in a desired location (hotel or house).

Children under 12 do not need to be tested.
