Some Risk

There is some risk to your security in Norway due to the threat of terrorism and we advise caution.

View Larger Map Close/Open map

Terrorist groups, including those based in Syria and Iraq, continue to make threats to conduct attacks in Norway and across Europe. There is also a threat from domestic-based extremists, including plots that may involve foreign fighters returning to Norway and other countries in Europe from the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

The Norwegian authorities maintain a national terrorism threat level for Norway and currently assess the likelihood of a terrorist attack in Norway as “likely”.

New Zealanders in Norway are advised to keep themselves informed of potential risks to safety and security by monitoring the media and other local information sources. We recommend following any instructions issued by the local authorities and exercising a high degree of vigilance in public places.

General travel advice
New Zealanders travelling or living in Norway should have a comprehensive travel insurance policy in place.

New Zealanders in Norway are encouraged to register their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
