Required Documents for your Trip

Mandatory proof of vaccination
Fully vaccinated travelers must carry proof that meets the outlined criteria. Travelers who cannot show proof using one of the indicated methods are not considered fully vaccinated by Norway.

Travelers are considered to be fully vaccinated if 1 week has passed since they received the second vaccine dose or if 3 weeks have passed since they received their single-dose vaccine.

Vaccines need to be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Currently, certificates (Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, or EU digital COVID-19 certificate) with a QR code can be verified by Norwegian authorities.

Travelers who can present English and Welsh NHS COVID Pass, Northern Ireland, and Scottish COVID-19 vaccine certificates with a verifiable QR code will be allowed to enter Norway.

Travelers with access to the EU Digital Certificate may use it to present proof.
