The requirements for quarantine do not apply to travellers who are resident in a EU+ country with fewer than 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants during the last two weeks, and fewer than 5 per cent positive tests on average per week over the last two weeks.
The Norwegian Institute for Public Health has an overview of currently exempt countries (and exempt regions in the Nordic countries). The list is updated fortnightly.
Please also note that productions granted support from Norway’s 25% cash rebate can get travel restrictions lifted for cast and crew – including non-EEA/EU citizens, pursuant to Section 3R of the regulations relating to entry restrictions for foreign nationals.
Separate rules apply for work travel within the Nordic and EEA/EU countries.
Entering into force from October 31st, work travellers from red countries – where the 14-day notification rate is higher than 150 cases per 100 000 – must go into 10-day quarantine. The EU has an overview of current red countries.
Work travellers from other EU/EEA countries are allowed to work after the first negative test, but must remain in quarantine in leisure hours. It is required to test all work travellers every 72 hours through the first 10 days.
