Norway uses a system of colors assignment to each country/region to determine the level of infection for COVID-19. The color assigned to the country from which the passenger arrives will determine if they will need to enter quarantine, and what rules they must follow when entering Norway. 

In green / orange countries/regions, the infection rate is considered low and no quarantine is required. If you arrive in Norway from a green / orange country/region (no stopover or stay in quarantined countries/regions), you do not have to enter quarantine. However, if arriving from a red / dark red / purple / gray country/region the general rule is that passengers over 18 years of age must be quarantined.

Please always check all entry/exit requirements, on Norway's official government websites, prior to your client's trip.
