Covid-info teams

The organizer was granted an exemption from the general covid-regulation from the Norwegian government 6th of July. General information from the government at this link, but the info below should be all you need. Please read everything carefully. The required tests described below also includes the tests required by UCI. Info below applies to all teams (riders and staff).

At home before departure to Norway

    • You are obliged to fill out a travel registration form 72 hours before travelling to the country. This also applies to travelers from green countries and regions. Information and registration here.
    • Pre-event health checks according to the UCI covid protocol
    • PCR test #1: 6 days before the event
    • PCR test #2: No more than 24 hours before departure of the flight to Norway or 24 hours before arrival by car. (This is the same test required by the UCI maximum 72 hours before the event. PCR #2 must be proved by a certificate. This certificate must be in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, French or German, and you will have to present it at the border.

Important note: The requirement for the test needed for entering Norway is only a rapid antigen test. The team may choose to have the second PCR required by the UCI earlier, and take a rapid antigen test as an additional test if this is easier to organize.

At the border

  • All persons are obliged to have a test at the border crossing point (rapid antigen test). This also applies to travelers from green countries and regions. The test is free of charge.
  • You must present the official letter from the organizer which proves that you have exemption from the regulations (will be sent out soon).

During the stay in Norway

  • You have been in a “green” European country over all the last 10 days: No special requirements.
  • All persons who have been outside Europe over the last 10 days before arrival or in a European country classified as orange, red or purple at the Norwegian scale are obliged to stay in a special “race quarantine” the first 3 days. A negative PCR-test at day 3 will take them out of this special quarantine. They are authorized to do their work while in Norway (Training/participating in the race for the riders, and for the staff doing their regular work). But they are obliged to limit their contact with other people to a minimum.
    • A mandatory rapid antigen test in the morning at day 2 and 3 after arrival also apply for this group
