Avinor, the airport manager, appealed to passengers: “It will be difficult until some of the coronavirus restrictions are changed or the controls become automated, so we are asking travelers to prepare.”

According to TV 2, passenger service takes up to six hours. This is connected with the need to control documents on the windows of the airline, as well as border control. More time, up to seven to eight hours, will be needed for people who will travel to Oslo to get tested for COVID-19 to avoid quarantine.

For the needs of those waiting at the airport, additional lounges were allocated, including in the room where luggage was stored, and portable holiday toilets were equipped.

On July 1, Norway, although not a member of the European Union, joined the European Union’s system for recognizing certificates of vaccination, transmission of disease or a negative COVID-19 test.
