Direct flights to Svalbard from Oslo and Tromsø

How to travel to Svalbard

Both Norwegian and SAS Airlines offers flights to Svalbard. It is very important to be aware of the mandatory ID control for all travelers.



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

For Norwegian citizens


Passports or national identity cards will satisfy Schengen regulatory requirements for identity verification. Since national ID cards are unavailable in Norway, Norwegians can identify themselves with a driver's license issued after 1998, credit cards or Ministry of Defence Identity Card. This is a transitional arrangement that applies until a national ID card is introduced in Norway. 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 national ID cards are introduced, Norwegians (including children) must identify themselves with a passport or national ID card.
