Calling to take a test? Please note that there most probably will be a waiting time by phone, to get through to the health services. Please do not hang up, but keep your position in the line. You will receive help, but most probably after some waiting time.

Leaving Norway and required to take a test before departure? Please note that some airline companies and different countries have different requirements for Corona testing ahead of departure from Norway. It is your responsibility as student to keep up with the guidelines and requirements for your country and airline company. Contact your local test centre or eventually use Dr. Dropin and ask for the possibility to take a test which gives you a rapid answer. As per April 30th students are themselves responsible for covering eventual costs for testing ahead of departure to home countries.
