SVALBARD IS (ALMOST) CLOSED FOR TRAVELLERS FROM OUTSIDE NORWAY

Abroad to mainland Norway: Only entrance for Norwegian citizens, permanent residents, critical personnel and people employed or working in Norway as well as some other exceptions (medical needs, close family, property owners). 10 days quarantine on the mainland (not on Svalbard) upon arrival to Norway. At home or another suitable place. It's not possible to travel directly from outside Norway to Svalbard. From 15/6 Danish citizens traveling from Denmark are exempt from the quarantine regulations and can travel to Norway and Svalbard. 
 
Mainland Norway to Svalbard: From 01.06 all restrictions are lifted and Svalbard (including Ny-Ålesund) is open for all travelers from mainland Norway.

Svalbard to mainland Norway: Only possible for Norwegian citizens, permanent mainland residents, Svalbard residents, people who work on the mainland and some other exceptions (medical needs, close family, property owners).
All other travelers must travel directly out of the country or they will be deported (at their own cost) to their home country. Make sure you have a connection ticket out from Norway on your return flight (avoid lay-overs if possible).

Traveling restrictions to Norway from some counties MIGHT be lifted in June or July. More information will come from the Government before June 15th.

All travel is of course only possible for people who are symptom free and not in quarantine or isolation.
