Vaccines and safety in Norway
Vaccines and local diseases
No vaccine is required for visitors. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your rights to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a Member State of the European Union, it allows you to benefit from the medically necessary care. It is recommended that you take out additional insurance.
Security in Norway
Common delinquency is low in Norway. However, there has been an upsurge in burglaries and pickpocketing during the holidays (Christmas, Easter and during July). As for the terrorist risk, it is rather moderate. We advise you to consult the France Diplomatie website to keep up to date with the latest health and safety recommendations before your departure.
Health insurance and repatriation in Norway
Why take international health insurance when travelling or living in Norway? Simply because health spending quickly reaches very high amounts abroad. In addition, the repatriation guarantee is an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident it is sometimes necessary to carry out a medicalized repatriation to the nearest medical centre or to the country of residence. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and depending on the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to Charter a helicopter or a medicalized aircraft.
