Norway to tighten border control with Russian: Enger Mehl

WorldRussiaNorway to tighten border control with Russian: Enger Mehl

Norway is currently planning to tighten its border controls with Russia, The Norwegian Ministry of Justice has made the following announcement on Friday. The Ministry added that the Norwegian-Russian border is being monitored closely after the Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization last week.

Justice Minister Enger Mehl said, “We will close the borders quickly if required and can make changes at short notice. There have been few arrivals in Norway as compared to Finland and the situation is different here.”


The government of Norway believes that closing the border will increase the risk of illegal border crossings and therefore plans to boost border patrols in Sor-Varanger (in the very north region of the nation) instead.

Finland, along with a number of other EU nations, has recently closed its borders to Russian tourists. The Norwegian government has decided to take a “wait and see” approach but is ready to make a decision quickly.

Mobilization in Russia and a potential travel ban for citizens of Russia could increase the risk of illegal border crossings. The last few days have seen increased traffic at Russian borders with neighboring nations and the cost of plane tickets out of Russia has skyrocketed.

Norway shares a 190 kilometres border with Russia in the far north of the country. Police helicopters will be stationed in the region from Friday to look out for illegal border crossings; in May Norway already made it more difficult for Russians to obtain visas.

Finland has made it all but impossible to cross the border unless for exceptional cases. Unlike Finland, Norway isn’t a part of the EU although it is part of the Schengen area, which could allow Russians to access other EU Member States.
