Concerned Norwegians are contacting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about leaving South Africa

Concerned Norwegians are contacting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs about leaving South Africa

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has received many inquiries from worried Norwegians who want to leave South Africa.

The ministry told TV 2 that 250 people notified them that they were in either South Africa or one of the neighboring countries. 

On Saturday, Sweden’s ambassador to South Africa, Håkan Juholt, asked all Swedish citizens to leave the country immediately due to the new corona variant omicron. So far, the Norwegian authorities have not made the same appeal as the Swedes. 

“We introduced new travel advice on Friday, where we advise against all travel to South Africa. For the time being, we do not advise Norwegians to leave the country immediately,” the ministry’s spokesperson Ane Haavardsdatter Lunde said.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ advice to Norwegians in the African countries is to follow the local infection control advice and follow developments closely in the international media.

“Everyone is encouraged to register in the Travel Ready app. Then we can give them updated information from the Norwegian authorities if the situation changes,” Haavardsdatter Lunde said.
