Be also aware that due to the same strike it can be difficult to withdraw money from the ATM. It will not affect the use of cards in the shops, only at ATMs.

Like mentioned above this strike affects airports (security checks - it has now been widened to most Norwegian airports) and ATMs (guards not on duty to tank them). Today it has also been announced that museums like Nationalgalleriet and Much Museum in Oslo will be closed due to the same reasons.
