TRAVELING TO SVALBARD

Norway and Svalbard is now open for travellers from many European regions as well as some other groups including permanent residents (incl. Svalbard residents), close family, property owners, critical personnel and people employed or working in Norway. Regions within the EU/EØS with low infection rate are exempt from travel and quarantine regulation. The map of "green" regions will be updated every 14 days. See all rules and map of regions here: https://www.fhi.no/en/op/novel-coronavirus-facts-advice/facts-and-general-advice/travel-advice-COVID19/?term=&h=1

Please note: Any mandatory quarantine upon arrival have to be taken on the mainland, not on Svalbard. If you are on Svalbard and not on the "green list" of people who can enter Norway, you must travel directly out of the country or risk being deported (at your own cost) to your home country. Make sure you have a connecting ticket out of Norway (avoid lay-overs if possible). If you are going to Ny-Ålesund please see https://kingsbay.no/ for COVID-19 regulations and fees.

All travel is of course only possible for people who are symptom free and not in quarantine or isolation.
