Norway outbound travel opens

Citizens of Norway are now eligible to travel to other countries, including for medical tourism, as the country’s government will no longer advise them to avoid unnecessary travel.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed the abolition of general travel avoidance advice not to travel.

It has now returned to making an assessment of whether each country should have travel advice. The pandemic and health situation will be part of the assessment together with security in the country. A new free app Reiseklar from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides access to travel advice, travel information, and travel registration in one place.

The lifting of the advice against non-essential travel is part of the country’s efforts to return to everyday life.

While most Norwegian medical tourists remain within Europe, travelling mainly to Spain, some travel further to Turkey.
