Coronapandemien has not only led to economic and health challenges. The pandemic and restrictions have also led to major social challenges for the norwegians with families and boyfriends abroad.
I, like many others, has been divided from my loved ones - and we do not know how long it will be like that. We managed not to collect "krisestaben our" before the borders were closed 16. march.
Over 100 days have passed with closed borders and division. Restrictions for the entry prevents still a part of australians to gather their flock. The most painful is to not know when we can be seen again.
Love and family ties need to have a physical meeting place.
Workers with sesongvisum have got journey into Norway against quarantine for several months. The same applies to the family and fiance of EEA nationals resident in the Uk. 15. June relieved the government of some innreiserestriksjoner. Norway opened up for the norwegians ' families and spouses from the majority of EU/EEA countries can also come to Norway.
My dear from a third country, i.e. from outside the EU/EEA. We are not allowed to be reunited again on Norwegian soil. We are the split has been discouraged by the government.Norway refuse Per (79) the visit of the fiance (81)
But our loved ones are not tourists. They are children, girlfriends and families to the Norwegian citizens. Our nearest flock. When tourists can now get here from selected countries, so should also our loved ones make the trip here. Especially also if it is an acceptable smittenivå in both countries.
A cold winter's day in the middle of February gave I goodbye to my boyfriend who was going to Oslo Airport. The last few months we had lived together in a small apartment in Carl Berner. Now we should get a new life in Tel Aviv for one year, before we would return home again to Norway next summer.
the Plan was that it was only going to be a month until we would see each other again. But it was so not.
Corona turned the world on its head. Borders closed here and there. Over 100 days later, we do not know when and where we can be reunited - not in Europe. It is painful and distressing to endure.
The last time we talked a lot about rights. The right to speak to us. The right to love who we want. Now I will talk about the frarøvede right to private and family life.
There is a basic human right to have privacy and family life. It stands in the convention on human rights article 8, which is a part of Norwegian law. It can only be interference in this right by compelling considerations in a democratic society, which is to close the borders and have strict smitteverntiltak during a pandemic.
From 27. June open Denmark up for that girlfriends and families from all over the world can travel to their Danish loved ones again. Why don't Norway the same?
Government, the Parliament and the elected: It is high time that the measures are less restrictive and painful for us who are prevented from joining with the girlfriend we have.
they should after all not last longer than necessary. We need to reunite now. The greatest of all is love. It should not know any borders longer than needed.Berit (78) will not hit the her husband You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
