altWhen traveling outside your home country, it is always advised to ensure that your travel insurance is up to date and includes medical insurance. Always carry a basic first aid kit including allergy medication, Ibuprofen such as Advil and other necessary supplies in case of an emergency.

Oslo is considered to be one of Europe’s safer cities, and is widely thought to be the safest of the Scandinavian capitals. As a result, you probably will not run into any difficulty during your stay. Do, however, take conventional precautions to avoid pickpockets; as the number of tourists visiting the city has increased, so too has the amount of petty crime. You should not have a problem even when walking streets at night, especially in Oslo’s more commercial districts like Aker Brygge, which is well-lit and policed well. Violent crime against visitors almost never occurs here, so you need not fear the local population. If you do choose to rent a car in the city, take care to park it in a closed garage to deter car theft.

There are no major health concerns in Oslo. The water is completely safe to drink and food is cooked in line with international standards. EU members should be covered by reciprocal health agreements, but other nationalities should be sure to purchase travel insurance, as mentioned above.

Contact your embassy in case you lose your passport or other travel documents.

In case of a major accident or emergency, always carry the following information with you:
Police: 112
Ambulance: 113
