In an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), the Norwegian border control measures will be extended for 90 days, after 15 May.
The current measures in place involve the posting of police and military employees at border stations in order to control persons crossing the borders.
It is important for truck drivers to have their passport and driving license readily available when crossing the border.
On 15 April, rules on driving and rest times were relaxed in Norway. Relaxations will apply only for freight transport operations until 24:00 of 13 May and are as follows:
