Direct flights to Svalbard from Oslo and Tromsø

How to travel to Svalbard


Both Norwegian and SAS offers flights to Svalbard. The flights from Oslo takes about 3 hours, from Tromsø about 1 ½ hours.

Passport or ID-card 

Due to Svalbard being outside the Schengen area, identity control is performed for all guests travelling to and from Svalbard. This also includes Norwegians. All guests with a foreign citizenship must bring their passports or national ID-card.

For Norwegian citizens

Passport or national ID-card is the recommended identification for all Norwegians travelling to Svalbard, as it is the fastest and easiest way to travel here.
Until 31 december 2021, a temporary exception allows norwegians to also identify themselves with the following:

- A driver's license issued after 1998
- Credit card with photo
- Ministry of Defence Identity Card

The documents must be issued in Norway and at least contain the traveller’s name, photo and date of birth. Persons under 18 years will in many cases be unable to have such documents issued. Norwegian children can therefore be identified by an adult accompanying the child to the plane or travelling with the child. After December 31 2021, Norwegians (including children) must identify themselves with a passport or national ID card.
