If you are entitled to a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from your country of residence, you should make sure you bring it with you. This card documents your entitlement to necessary health care at treatment centres that are part of the public health care service.
You should also consider taking out private health insurance. This might be used, for example, to meet the costs of medical transport back to your home country if you fall ill.
If you are not entitled to a European Health Insurance Card and are staying in Norway for up to one year, you should take out private health insurance.
