The Norwegian government has announced it will lift a current travel advisory against all non-essential travel to "some" European Union and European Economic Area countries on July 15, 2020, although the exact list has yet to be published.

"From 15 July, we are changing our travel advice for countries in Europe with acceptable levels of infection. The travel advice will be changed for countries that are excepted from the rules on quarantine on entry to Norway, that is countries that meet the criteria set by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health," Minister of Foreign Affairs Ine Eriksen Søreide said.

As of June 30, Norway maintains one of the strictest border regimes in Europe. Only citizens and residents of 31 European countries are allowed to enter Norway but, with the exception of people from Finland, Iceland, and Denmark (including the Faroe Islands and Greenland), have to self-quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.

Despite the restrictive border regime, Norway has reportedly recorded the smallest year-on-year decreases in air traffic in Europe thanks to its expansive network of domestic services, operated mainly by SAS Scandinavian Airlines (SK, Copenhagen Kastrup), Norwegian (DY, Oslo Gardermoen), and Widerøe (WF, Bodø). According to Eurocontrol, as of June 29, the daily number of air traffic movements in Norwegian airspace is 55% lower than a year ago.
