Norway will further limit the access of Russian tourists because of the ongoing war in Ukraine, the Norwegian Ministry of Justice announced end of May, as quoted by Reuters.

Norway, which is a member of NATO, shares a border with Russia in the Arctic of almost 200 km. Oslo for the first time tightened the regime for granting tourist visas to Russians in 2022.

“The decision to tighten entry rules is in line with Norway’s approach to support allies and partners in response to Russia’s illegal war of aggression against Ukraine,” Norwegian Justice Minister Emily Enger Mell said in a statement.

Russian citizens whose purpose is tourism and other non-essential travel will not be allowed to enter through the external border. Exceptions can be made in cases such as visits to close relatives residing in Norway, the ministry explained.
