National measures and restrictions
Information for Norwegian citizens about travel and the coronavirus
The global advice against all non-essential travel was rescinded on October 1st 2021, and no new pandemic-related travel advice has been issued for any countries in connection with this. The infection situation and local restrictions can change very quickly. Therefore, travel advice may be issued for specific countries if major challenges related to the pandemic emerge again. Anyone considering a trip abroad should think carefully about whether it is necessary to travel.
Fully vaccinated people and those who have had COVID-19 during the past six months are exempt from entry quarantine if they have valid documentation. Only presentation of a COVID-19 certificate with a QR code which can be verified by the Norwegian authorities is considered a secure and verifiable way to document vaccination or previous illness.
Travellers from countries/regions in the EEA/Schengen/United Kingdom with a sufficiently low infection rate (green countries/regions) do not need to go into entry quarantine. Read more at the FHI webpages.
Other travellers (over 18 years of age) are required to go into entry quarantine for up to 10 days, if they are not mentioned in the exemption provisions in the COVID-19 regulations, but can end quarantine if they test negative with a PCR test taken no earlier than three days after arrival. Children and young people under the age of 18 are no longer required to go into entry quarantine, but are encouraged to take a test 3 days after arrival.
The authorities are asking everyone living or staying in Norway to read the important information and advice provided about coronavirus at www.fhi.no and helsenorge.no. This advice is updated regularly. The information is available in different languages.
Measures and restrictions at Andøya Space
General measures for all personnel at Andøya Space
The following applies to both employees and visitors.
With increasing vaccination coverage in the population and a new phase of the pandemic, many infection control measures for the population have been removed. This phase is called “normal daily life with increased preparedness”. The general infection control advice such as having good cough etiquette and hand hygiene and staying home when you are ill still applies. Everyone who is ill should have a low threshold for being tested. This also applies to people who are vaccinated and protected.
