Exception from Regulations on expulsion

Foreign nationals residing permanently in Svalbard can now pass through the Norwegian mainland when traveling from abroad to Svalbard.

This is regulated by a change in the Regulations on expulsion, etc. of foreigners without a residence permit in Norway due to public health. See link to the right (in Norwegian only).

The quarantine obligation due to the corona situation still applies. This means that people who come to Norway from abroad and who shall travel to Svalbard must first be in quarantine on the mainland for 14 days.
