Norway is known for its mountains, the fjords and of course, the northern lights. Spanning a length of 15 miles, it also has the longest road tunnel in the world. Skiing is a very popular sport and as an ancient rock carving at Rdy in northern Norway attests, that to get around in the Norwegian mountains, people used a form of skis as long ago as 4,000 years.

With so many outdoor activities and places to visit, you may want to plan ahead for any unexpected medical event or other issues before starting out on your adventures. Look into the various travel insurance plans for your vacation or business travels.

Travel Insurance Requirements for Norway

International travelers visiting Norway will need to have travel insurance with a minimum coverage of 30,000 (about $50,000 USD) to satisfy the Schengen Visa requirements.

For non-U.S. residents, travel insurance must be purchased before the issuance of your Schengen Visa. With several travel Insurance plans to choose from, VisitorsCoverage can help you decide which one is right for your needs.

We have travel medical plans with emergency medical evacuation, comprehensive coverage, and more. We also have plans that cover the Covid-19 requirements.

If you’re an American citizen traveling from the U.S. needing to cancel, postpone or cut short your original travel plans for any reason, including Covid-19-related issues, trip insurance with Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) coverage may be a better option. For international and non-US residents, the best fit may be International Travel Medical Insurance.

COVID-19 in Norway

Check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for current COVID-19 conditions and requirements. Do not travel if you test positive for Covid, and make sure your vaccinations are up to date.

It is still important to continue safe hygiene practices.

  • Wash your hands often, especially before eating.
  • If you are sick, stay home or in your hotel room, unless you need medical care.
