Norway tightens entry restrictions for Russian citizens

The Norwegian government announced on Thursday further restrictions on the entry of Russian citizens into Norway, effective from May 29, reported Xinhua.

The move is aimed at curbing non-essential travel, particularly for tourism purposes, the Norwegian government said in a press release.

The initial restrictions on visa issuance to Russian citizens were implemented in the spring of 2022. Since then, tourist visas have largely been denied.

However, Russian citizens will still be allowed entry if they are visiting close family members residing in Norway. Additionally, those coming for work or study in Norway or other Schengen countries will not be affected by the new rules.

    As a Russian citizen myself, I understand Norway’s decision to tighten entry restrictions for non-essential travel. Safety measures are crucial in these times, and it’s important to prioritize the well-being of all residents. I support the government’s efforts to curb unnecessary tourism for the time being. Hopefully, these restrictions will help in managing the current situation effectively.
