Welcome back! All travellers who are entitled to enter Norway can do so without having to quarantine. All visitors must register online prior to entry, and complete a COVID-19 test on arrival (free). Travellers who do not possess a valid COVID certificate must also test themselves before departing to Norway.

These are considered valid COVID certificates.
It is important to remember that those who have symptoms of COVID, or who test positive, must go into isolation immediately. If you are a close contact to a person who has tested positive for COVID, you may be required to quarantine or, alternatively, to test yourself regularly over a period of time in order to avoid quarantining. Read more about quarantine and testing rules if you have COVID or are a close contact.
All Norwegian border crossings are open. You will find test stations (free testing on arrival) at airports with international flights, at international ferry ports, and at some main border crossings. Tests at arrival are free at the main points of entry, but if you need to take a test before you travel out of Norway again, you have to pay for a private test.
