All actual information about COVID-19 (prevention, statistics, symptoms and more) you can find on WHO website and in Google feed.

2019 divided the history of most countries into «before» and «after». We are talking about a pandemic that has swept the whole world. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first identified among residents of Hubei province (China). In just a few months, a disease called Covid-19 has spread to the inhabitants of the entire planet. Russia and Norway were not an exception.

Why is covid so dangerous? Regardless of the level of development of a particular state, medical care and other factors, millions of people have become victims of the coronavirus. According to the latest data, this figure is 203 356 035 people, among the total — 4 302 588 deaths. The main symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, high fever, dry cough, loss of taste and smell. The world’s leading countries have developed or are working on the production of their own vaccines that protect against COVID-19. Naturally, vaccination is not a 100% guarantee of protection against coronavirus, however, when infected, the disease is transferred much easier.

According to current data (statistics for Monday, 9 August 2021), the number of cases in Norway is 141 333 people, total deaths are 804, and 10 286 are sick right now. Such statistics forced the government of the state of Norway to impose certain restrictions on flights and border crossing.

Is it allowed to enter Norway from Russia?

Current statistics on the restrictions on entry to Norway:

  • Open to citizens: Yes
  • Open to Russians: Partially
  • Open to foreigners and tourists: Partially
  • Quarantine (lockdown) in Norway: No

During the most «acute» periods of the pandemic, the following restrictions are applied in Norway:

  1. Foreigners can enter the territory of Norway only if absolutely necessary: study in Norway, employment, residence permit. For more information about the conditions of entry, read the official sources of the government: https://no.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/
  2. Availability of the test: Negative PCR test is required for some travelers.

All countries are divided into 3 main categories by the Ministry of Health:

  • «Green» (low rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Orange» (average rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Red» (high rate of spread of coronavirus)

In this regard, the government acts in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Association. The distribution of states into separate categories is updated regularly. At the moment, Russia ranks among the states of the «Orange» category.

The main reasons for the introduction of new restrictions are coronavirus mutations, an increase in the number of cases, and insufficient vaccination rates.
