Fit to Fly Certificate for Travellers to Norway

Before the coronavirus pandemic swept throughout the world, travel restrictions, apart from isolated instances, and even with Brexit looming, were unheard of. Although we are showing signs of helping us reduce the health risk and we are starting to see travel restrictions being lifted, everything is still very much in flux and subject to change.
If you are looking to head to Norway at some point this year, it is important to understand that even if there are no bans or restrictions in place right now, there could be when you want to fly out. We are living in challenging times right now. To help you out right now, though, we are going to look at the current rules about travelling from the UK to Norway.

Can You Travel to Norway?

The simple answer to this question is that it depends. As of January this year (2021) UK nationals lose their classification as EU/EEA nationals and are therefore not allowed to visit Norway unless they individually qualify. There may be an exemption to this rule if you are officially considered a resident of another country within the EU or you have a close relative who is a Norwegian resident.

If you were legally considered a Norwegian resident on the 31st of December 2020, the above rules do not apply. However, when you travel to Norway, you may be required to show proof of your residency before being allowed to re-enter the country.

What Covid-19 Test Do You Need to Travel to Norway?

As the UK is classified as a red country by Norway, a fit-to-fly certificate and evidence of a negative PCR or antigen Covid-19 test is required. You need to have your test just 24 hours before you depart.

What Documentation Do you Need to Travel to Norway?

As noted above, you may need to show evidence of your residency to gain entry to Norway. In addition to that, you also need to have a Norway fit to fly certificate that shows evidence that you have taken a negative PCR or Antigen Covid-19 test.

Where Can You Get a Covid-19 Test and Norway fit to Fly Certificate?

As you are probably aware, you are not allowed to use an NHS Covid-19 test to travel to and from different countries. Rather, you need to book and pay for a private test. If you are not sure where best to go for that test, you need to consider several factors before making your choice. As well as being sure to choose a reputable and Government-backed facility, you will also likely want one that can provide you with quick results.

Pure Testing meets all the above criteria. Their tests are administered by a team of experienced and fully qualified healthcare professionals who have been specifically trained in the Covid-19 testing process and can carry out tests quickly and accurately.
Another huge benefit of using Pure Testing’s services is that they are quick and efficient. Booking an appointment is easy. You simply look at the online booking scheduler on the Pure Testing site, choose the time and date best for you. Remember to keep in mind your departure date and time and make sure you can get your test booked within the 24 hours before you travel to qualify for entry to Norway.

On the day of your test you just need to head down to the facility and have your test, this should take less than 15 minutes. Following that, you just need to head back home and wait for your results. They will be posted in digital form to the email account you gave at the time of booking and in the format, you requested, along with the Norway Fit to Fly Certificate, signed by a GP.

Why You Should Choose Pure Testing

In addition to the reasons we have already discussed, there are many more that set Pure Testing apart from other testing organisations. Not only are their testing facilities Government-backed, but their laboratories are UKAS-certified (one of the only few companies in the country with that esteemed qualification) and offer an affordable, accurate and efficient testing service.

The Antigen Test is used to determine whether you have the Covid-19 virus. This test works by searching for the pieces of the virus that your immune system recognises, the antigens.

It is especially helpful for screening acute, asymptomatic, and mild patients for identifying the Covid-19 infection.

We will email you the test result certificate by 10pm the same day you had the test.

NB. You are not allowed to travel to the majority of destinations on the basis of your Covid-19 Antigen Test. If you are looking to travel please book your PCR Test and Fit to Fly Certificate.
