Strani državljani bez simptoma infekcije korona virusom mogu napustiti Norvešku. Lica koja su u karantinu, ali koji nemaju simptome, sada mogu napustiti Norvešku pod uslovom da sprovode sve zdravstvene mjere za kontrolu infekcije tokom prevoza od mjesta gde se nalaze u karantinu do mjesta polaska.
Ovo uključuje sljedeće:
• Ako morate koristiti javni prevoz ili taksi da biste stigli do najbližeg aerodroma, autobuske stanice ili željezničke stanice, morate držati udaljenost od najmanje 2 (dva) metra između vas i sledećeg najbližeg putnika

Na aerodromima će biti prisutno osoblje iz opština, kojima možete da se obratite u slučaju pojave problema.
Možete da koristite svoj automobil da biste putovali van zemlje, ali je na vama da provjerite koji su granični prelazi otvoreni.
Ako želite napustiti Norvešku vazdušnim putem, morate sami nabaviti važeću kartu. Aerodromi sa direktnim letovima iz Norveške su:
• Oslo - Gardermoen
• Torp - Sandefjord
Ako se razbolite ili razvijete simptome dok ste na putu iz Norveške, pozovite zdravstvenu službu za pomoć na telefon: 116 i 117.
Naglašavamo da, ako imate temperaturu ili respiratorne simptome poput kašlja ili nedostatka daha, treba da ostanete u izolaciji i ne možete napustiti zemlju.
Saopštenje MIP-a Norveške i uredba o karantinu su dostupni na Foreign nationals with no symptoms of coronavirus infection may leave Norway
Due to the corona virus outbreak, many foreign nationals face problems with traveling out of Norway as planned.
If you are in Norway now on a visitor’s visa, a visa free permit, or on a residency permit, and are not able to travel out of Norway before the expire date, you will not get any negative consequences.
This means that you will not be expelled because of this, even though your stay lasts longer than your visa or your residency permit.
It will not have any consequences for you if you want to apply for a visitor’s visa or residency permit again another time. You do not have to notify UDI or the police that you are not able to travel out of Norway within your time limit.
At the same time, it is still important that you try to get an exit out of Norway as soon as possible. There are still a lot of flights out of Norway, and many people manage to travel out, either as planned, or on another flight.
Exceptions of these “provisions”
- If you travel out of the country, for example to Sweden, and then travel back to Norway, what is written about will not be valid and you can be expelled from Norway.
- If you were here on an illegal stay before the corona virus outbreak in Norway, you can still be expelled.
- You can also be expelled if you commit violation of the immigration act or commit other criminal offenses.
- name and surname
- place of current - present residence
- telephone number

Other relevant information
As a point of departure, the Norwegian government does not cover costs for this group to stay in Norway. However, they may be entitled to social support, provided that their stay in Norway is legal, cf. nav.no: https://www.nav.no/no/person/flere-tema/sosiale-tjenester/okonomisk-sosialhjelp2#chapter-2 . (Check what’s said under the heading «Hvem kan få?»). They need to contact and present their case to the local NAV-office.
Those workers whose contracts have been terminated shall, according to the Expulsion Regulation, leave the country: https://www.regjeringen.no/en/dokumenter/regulations-relating-to-amendments-to-the-regulations-of-15-march-2020-no.-293-relating-to-rejection-etc.-of-foreign-nationals-without-a-residence-permit-in-the-realm-out-of-concern-for-public-health/id2694111/. Therefore, they must explain to NAV why they have not been able to leave the country.
Whether the employer is willing to offer accommodation even though the contract is terminated, has to be agreed on directly with the employer. This is something the Norwegian government cannot decide. However, in our opinion, the employer should show flexibility in this situation, to avoid a situation where people end up on the street.
Regarding the issue of foreign nationals exceeding their stay in Norway, the latest update (of today) from UDI is as follows (https://www.udi.no/en/about-the-corona-situation/questions-and-answers-regarding-the-corona-situation-i-norway/): “March 20, 2020
You must try to leave as quickly as possible, but it will not have any consequences for you if you unable to leave Norway before your visa expires as the situation is now. You also do not need to notify the UDI, or the police, that you will not be able to leave Norway before the visa expires.”
