OSLO (Reuters) - Norway will lift travel restrictions to and from more than 20 European countries from July 15, including France, Germany and Britain as well as some provinces of neighbouring Sweden, the government said on Friday.

Norway, which is not a member of the European Union but belongs to the passport-free Schengen travel zone, currently has some of Europe's strictest limitations on travel due to the coronavirus pandemic.
