Corona and travel to Svalbard

On the basis of many questions about travel to Svalbard and constantly changing guidelines and travel advice from the Norwegian authorities, the Governor asks that each person becomes familiar with the current regulations and makes their decisions in line with this. Norwegian health authorities encourage people to avoid leisure travel. We encourage people to follow the health authorities' advice on the coronary infection.

It is the quarantine regulations in force at any time that determine whether or not you can travel to Svalbard. These may change at short notice. See regulations to the right regarding quarantine regulations (in Norwegian language only).

The Directorate of Health generally encourages avoiding leisure travel and travel that is not strictly necessary. The destination company Visit Svalbard also asks visitors to strongly consider not going to Svalbard now, and rather to plan their trip to Svalbard later in 2020.
