Then these rules apply (if you come from a European country or a purple-rated country):
The cost of staying at a quarantine hotel is NOK 500 per night for both private individuals (adults) and employees.

If you live in most other countries outside the EU/EEA (including the US), and the country is not purple-rated, you are currently not permitted to enter Norway, unless one of the exemptions on this page applies to you.
All Norwegian border crossings are open as of October 6, 2021. This means that it is possible to cross the border more easily and quickly.
Starting on the same date, a minor change shall also apply to travellers who have a duty to test themselves for COVID-19. As a main rule, travellers who have a duty to test themselves still need to test themselves at the border. If there is no test station at the border, or if the test station is closed, one must take a rapid antigen test at a public test station as soon as possible, and within 24 hours of arrival, at the latest. Those who are feeling ill, or who are arriving in Norway from red and dark red-rated countries and areas without being fully vaccinated, have a duty to test themselves.
You can find information from the Norwegian authorities about the opening here.
Individuals entering Norway from an area with a quarantine obligation must provide all necessary information to the authorities. All persons with a registration obligation must therefore submit their own registration form here. One must also be able to provide confirmation of a suitable place to stay during the mandatory quarantine period.
