I will be moving from Italy to Norway for work reasons at the beginning of next year and, at the moment, a 10 days quarantine is requested to enter the country. The website https://www.helsenorge.no/en/coronavirus/international-travels/#travel-quarantine specifies that quarantine can be implemented at a suitable place of residence provided by the Norwegian employer (instead of a covid hotel). Since my wife will move with me (at the same time, on the same flight), I am wondering if she will too be allowed to spend the quarantine in the residence provided by my employer.
Has anyone some information on this? More generally, has any EU citizen travelled with the family to Norway in the last couple of weeks?
Update following Tor-Einar Jarnbjo comment:
Dear Tor-Einar Jarnbjo, thanks a lot for the answer. A couple of comments:
Exception 1. We are moving to Norway to take up residency and we will submit our residency application to UDI very soon. Does that mean that we will be effectively registered as residents in Norway before travelling there in January? By the way, I don't understand your sentence "who have not been abroad", since both me and my wife will indeed arrive from abroad.
Please do note that this exception for people moving to Norway to take up residency is not officially mentioned in the website https://www.helsenorge.no/en/coronavirus/international-travels/#travel-quarantine
Exception 3. Here my understanding differs from yours: I understood that a marriage certificate, together with my job contract and the housing provided by the employer should be enough for both me and my wife.
So, perhaps, the best option is to register to UDI as soon as possible and we still take up the apartment that my employer is providing?
Dear Tor-Einar Jarnbjo, thanks. So it seems that no exceptions apply to my wife. Indeed, exception 1 is not an option either: to register in the National Population Register before travelling to Norway one needs to comply several steps, see https://www.skatteetaten.no/en/person/national-registry/moving/to-Norway/?170446=170492. Only step 1, i.e., registration to UDI can be done by an EU national without a Norwegian ID number. The latter is necessary to complete the immigration form to submit to a tax office in Norway (step 2 in the above link). What do you think?
