Travel and home quarantine


Updated March 14, 2020, 11am

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all non-essential overseas travel.

The advice is valid from March 14 until April 14, 2020.
Work travel 

    • Staff should only undertake travel that is absolutely necessary. 
    • Work travel must be approved by your work supervisor. 
    • The university will cover the cost of work travel that must be cancelled. 
    • Staff are asked to carefully consider the need for private travel. 
    • All overseas work and study travel is cancelled until further notice, unless there are compelling reasons, which in any case must be approved prior to travel. 

Home quarantine and home isolation

The situation is evolving rapidly and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) releases updated information often.

We recommend that you stay up-to-date here:

NB! The rules regarding home quarantine are retroactive with effect from February 27. If you have travelled outside of Norway (and the Nordic countries) in the last 14 days, the rules for home quarantine apply to you.

Information for Nord staff and students

  • Staff members in home quarantine should notify their work supervisor that they will be working from home.
  • Students in the same situation are asked to notify their study programme coordinator.
