Further to our recent blog Denmark Welcomes Full-Vaccinated Travellers - COVID-19 update, published on 6 July 2021, the Danish government has updated its guidance on the current travel restrictions implemented upon persons travelling from England to Denmark, confirming that England has now been classified as a red region and more strict entry restrictions have been implemented.
This blog briefly outlines the current Danish entry restrictions applicable to fully vaccinated travellers from England. However, as the rules on entry to and exit from Denmark are subject to change at short notice, all travellers are strongly advised to consult the Danish government website prior to travelling.
Since 4:00 pm on 17 July 2021, England has been officially classified as a red region by the Danish government. Pursuant to the updated guidance, fully vaccinated persons travelling from England will need to meet the following entry requirements:
- Take a COVID-19 test prior to boarding the aircraft
- Take a COVID-19 test upon arrival
- Isolate upon arrival
- Have a special, worthy purpose for entering Denmark
Please note that if you do not have one of the following special worthy purposes of entry, you will not be allowed to enter Denmark, regardless of you having been granted a valid visa and being fully vaccinated:
- You are the primary caregiver of minors
- You are related to, or in a relationship with, a seriously ill or dying person in Denmark
- You are transporting freight
- You are an air crew or ship crew member, offshore worker or maritime technician and travel through Denmark in transit on your homebound journey
- You are a diplomat, diplomatic courier or person who enters Denmark to pay a service visit to a local diplomatic mission or who is allowed to enter Denmark under a host country agreement
Please note that the above information pertains to Danish COVID-19 entry restrictions and should not be confused with Danish immigration control. Being exempt from Danish COVID-19 travel restrictions does not equate to being exempt from Danish immigration control.
