When the Norwegian authorities now change the travel advice for Europe, several countries are colored red. Four Swedish counties are opened, while two are closed again.

Norwegians who have been traveling in red countries and regions must be quarantined for ten days when they return home. The new advice that is now being announced applies from night to Saturday 8 August.

These countries are now turning red:

  • France
  • Monaco
  • Switzerland
  • Czech Republic

“Developments in several European countries are unfortunately not going in the right direction,” said Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide in a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Are you wondering how different countries are in relation to the requirements? Check it out here.

– This development confirms what has always been the government’s message: both the infection situation and local restrictions can change quickly, the foreign minister writes.

– Everyone who is considering traveling abroad must think carefully about and familiarize themselves with the situation in the country they are going to travel to, she points out.

  • Brand: Several countries that have actually crossed the red infection limit, according to figures for the last 14 days, are still marked green by NIPH and the government. This applies to Malta, the Netherlands and Poland. These are currently above the requirement, but you can still travel there without quarantine. Belgium was above the infection requirement of 20 a whole week before the travel advice there was changed.

No country goes from being red to being green. However, some Swedish regions do.

Sweden – these are turning green

Several regions that were red in Sweden are now colored green. You can travel to these without having to be quarantined when you get home.

  • Dalarna County
  • Södermanland County
  • Uppsala county
  • Vasterbotten

At the same time, the regions of Skåne and Kronoberg are now red.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs requests that everyone who has been traveling, especially to areas and countries that have turned red while traveling, pay special attention to symptoms.

No changes for Denmark

Although the two Danish regions Zealand and Central Jutland Thursday went over the infection limit, however, the whole of Denmark is still marked green.

There is no mention of Denmark in FHI’s update either.
