Norway has opened its borders for travelers from the most countries since November 26, 2021. Entry into the country is possible for various purposes, including tourism.
The new rules also apply to Russian citizens. This information was confirmed by the Russian office of the Norwegian Tourism Board.
“From November 26, Russians can visit Norway for tourist purposes. Entry into the country is allowed to persons who have a valid residence permit or a visa, as well as those who have visa-free entry. All adult travelers over 16 years of age must register before entering Norway. Russian vaccines against COVID-19 are not recognized in Norway, so Russians vaccinated with domestic drugs will have to undergo quarantine and additional testing upon arrival. If a tourist passes the PCR test no earlier than three days after arriving in Norway, and the result is negative, then he can end the entry quarantine," Olga Filippenko, director of the Norway Tourism Council in Russia, said.
