Quarantine period reduced

13 May 2020 / Norway

The quarantine period for individuals arriving in Norway from overseas has been reduced from 14 to 10 days. This does not apply to crew changes.

Crew members and other persons on board who have not had any contact with persons outside the ship, and who are signing off in Norway after the minimum days on board without any symptoms may be regarded as not infectious and do not need to be put in quarantine.

Shore leave is not permitted in any Norwegian ports.

All ports in Norway are closed for passenger transport, but cruise ships may be able to come alongside for provisions, water supply, garbage removal and crew changes. Passengers and crew may not leave ships.
