Covid-19: Changes for Svalbard
The requirement for a negative corona test before travelling to Svalbard from the Norwegian mainland is removed. The requirement that entry quarantine must be carried out on the mainland before further travel to Svalbard is continued, the Norwegian government writes in a press release today.
New regulations for access and passage in nature in Svalbard will render safer tourism
Government will outline a clearer framework for access, passage and activity in nature in Svalbard. The aim is to create even safer and better experiences for tourists, while reducing the impact on vulnerable nature.
Quarantine must be carried out on the mainland
The Governor reminds that persons who are subject to a quarantine obligation on arrival in mainland Norway must carry out the entry quarantine on the mainland before traveling on to Svalbard. It is not possible to carry out the entry quarantine on Svalbard.
