NRCC shares information received from the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow and relevant for Norwegian citizens and residents regarding travels in Russia. Available in Norwegian.

TIL REISENDE I RUSSLAND
Det er nå begrensede muligheter for reise ut av Russland etter stengning av grenser og stans i flytrafikken til/fra Russland fra 27. mars.
Pr 30. mars har Aeroflot noen flyvninger til enkelte europeiske byer for noen dager fremover. Det anbefales derfor å følge informasjon fra Aeroflot på deres nett-side, se spesielt
https://www.aeroflot.ru/ru-ru/news/archive/2020 og https://www.aeroflot.ru/ru-ru/news/archive/2020 (se språkvalg)
Det er anbefalt å kontakte Aeroflots salgskontorer for plass på flyene for å sjekke om det likevel er ledige billetter til tross for at flyvningen oppgis å være fullbooket.

Det er fortsatt mulig for EU-borgere og nordiske borgere å krysse grensen inn til Finland med bil så sant den som kjører er eier av bilen. For evt. andre utreisemuligheter via den finske grensen ber vi deg om å ta kontakt med ambassaden. Ambassaden har pt ikke bekreftet informasjon om internasjonale flyvninger videre fra Helsinki, men per 30. mars går det fly til bla. til Stockholm. Det anbefales å følge med på nettsiden til Helsinki flyplass. https://www.finavia.fi/en/airports/helsinki-airport

Pr. 30. mars er det fortsatt mulig å reise til Norge med fly til Murmansk og videre fra Kirkenes i Norge, og med bistand fra generalkonsulatet i Murmansk til transport til grensen på russisk side, som nevnt i Reiseinformasjon/Russland. På norsk side må den reisende selv ordne transport fra grensestasjonen på Storskog til flyplassen, og innenlands med fly videre. Det ventes at flyavganger fra Kirkenes kan bli innstilt/kansellert.

Den norske grensen er stengt for utlendinger uten oppholdstillatelse, men det er inntil videre mulig for norske statsborgere og personer med lovlig opphold i Norge å krysse grensen ut av Russland, forutsatt at man følger norske karantenebestemmelser. Personer med dobbelt norsk/russisk statsborgerskap, samt russiske statsborgere med norsk oppholdstillatelse risikerer å bli stanset på russisk side av grensen. Personer i denne situasjonen må kontakte russiske myndigheter for avklaring.

Ambassaden anbefaler alle norske borgere, og personer med fast bosted i Norge, på reise i Russland å vurdere å reise hjem til Norge så snart som mulig på en trygg og rolig måte. Det er den enkeltes ansvar å planlegge og gjennomføre hjemreise.

Kontakt ditt reise- eller flyselskap om reiserute og ditt reiseforsikringsselskap for bistand.

Det gjøres oppmerksom på at russiske borgere ikke lenger tillates å reise ut av Russland. Russiske borgere som har dobbelt statsborgerskap må kontakte russiske myndigheter for avklaring.

In Search of the Russian Market: - Everything is Permitted If It is Not Banned

High North NewsIn the recently published article, Arne O. Holm, Editor in Chief of an independent Norwegian newspaper High North News, writes about a larger Norwegian delegation to Vladivostok in the Russian Far East in the end of October 2019. The delegation was led by Norway's Ambassador to Russia Rune Resaland and consisted of business representatitives from more than 20 companies in addition to research and education institutions and organizations.

Several NRCC members took part in this visit, including members of the Møre Maritime Russia Cluster (MacGregor, Optimar, Kongsberg Maritime, Mørenot and Mustad Autoline) who carried out several executive level meetings with local fishing boat owners. Other NRCC members traveling to Vladivostok were Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Barents Secretariat, the High North Center at Nord University, the University of Tromsø (Norway’s Arctic university) and Northern Productions.

Arne O. Holm interviewed Ambassador Resaland and some of the members of the Norwegian delegation asking them to reflect on the current status of the Norwegian-Russian business cooperation and on how imposed restrictive measures affected their business. One of the interviewed - Lars Sundquist, the CEO of NRCC member company Northern Productions - has worked towards the Russian market since 1990, in the interview he elaborated on his new project - trout farming in the Ladoga lake in Karelia and the Leningrad region.
