Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Norway. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. Due to the pandemic, Norway has implemented new public health and entry measures. Large gatherings are banned, schools, universities and public institutions are closed and the use of public transport is discouraged. Expect travel disruptions as many flights have been banned from entering Norway. A quarantine period of 14 days will apply if entering from outside the Nordic region. Cruise passengers will not be allowed to disembark at the ports of Stavanger or Bergen. Check with your travel provider on disruptions and follow the advice of local authorities.   We now advise you to: Do not travel to Norway.
