The government of Norway has proposed legislation that would require people who are about to be repatriated under the Arrest Warrant Act, the Extradition Act, or Immigration Act to undergo testing to determine whether they are Coronavirus positive or not. 

“Many countries mandate visitors to provide a test result showing they are covid-19 negative.” Therefore, individuals about to be deported under Arrest Warrant Act, the Extradition Act, or Immigration Act can avoid this by evading testing,” according to a statement issued by Norway’s government, according to

Regardless of the fact that Norway and other nations have removed testing requirements before admittance, it should be mentioned that such criteria in many nations may be retained or brought back in the months ahead, according to the Norwegian government’s announcement.

“As a result, the government announced momentary legal mechanisms that will hold until July 1, 2023.” The regulations are included in the Immigration Act as well as a different transitory law on adaptations to international judicial cooperation regulations,” according to the statement.

  According to World Health Organization (WHO) data, Norway has registered a total of 1,430,841 positive COVID-19 infection cases since the inception of the Coronavirus outbreak, with at least 3,094 deaths.

Furthermore, Norwegian authorities have announced that no fewer than 11,305,805 doses of Coronavirus vaccines have been distributed as of May 15, 2022.

Notwithstanding the quick transmission of the Coronavirus new variants, Norwegian authorities dismissed all Coronavirus-related measures in February to ease travel and assist industries in recovering from the virus’s damage.

The action was confirmed in a statement issued by the country’s Ministry of Health and Care Services. However, the Ministry emphasized at the time that, notwithstanding the relaxation of regulations, everyone with symptoms must comply with the compulsory testing guideline.

“The health risk of the coronavirus pandemic is no longer significant to the majority of us.” The illness from the omicron virus is less serious, and vaccines keep us safe. As a result, we eliminate virtually all preventative measures, such as the meter, insulation, and bandage requirements. “We can resume normal everyday lives,” said Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre at the time.

Many European countries have removed most of the regulations placed due to the Coronavirus up to this point.
