Encouraging citizens to consider traveling home
The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is encouraging all Norwegian citizens traveling abroad to consider traveling home as soon as possible, in a safe and calm manner, in consultation with their travel agency or airline.
The University of Oslo deems that this also includes exchange students who are on a temporary stay in connection with their studies.
For their return to Norway we ask the students to contact their insurance company in regards to covering costs of tickets etc. The University of Oslo will cover travel costs if this is not covered by other arrangements.
For aid, they can also contact the Norwegian Consular services in the country you are in or the Ministry of Foreigns Affairs´ Center of Operations.
- There are many questions we need to clarify together and upon your return we ask you to contact your faculty for questions in regards to organizing your studies, says director Arne Benjaminsen, University of Oslo.
