Seafarers’ exemption for C19 test requirement

27 Nov 2020 / Norway

Seafarers are exempted from having to have a C19 test before entering Norway but shall, as far as possible, take a C19-test within 24 hours of arrival and produce a negative result before embarking their vessels.

A single cabin on a vessel can be used as a quarantine facility, awaiting test result, but GAC Norway does not recommend this solution in case of a positive result.

A second test taken at least 72 hours before embarking shall also be taken if possible, but this 72-hour test is only applicable for vessels staying more than three days in port and not returning to a Norwegian port within ten days.
