Denmark Welcomes Full-Vaccinated Travellers - COVID-19 update.

Posted by: Gherson Immigration

Foreigners who are fully vaccinated with an EMA approved vaccine may be exempt from Danish entry restrictions provided they can meet certain requirements.

This blog briefly outlines the special rules applicable to fully vaccinated travellers and current Danish entry restrictions. 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.

Which risk category does Denmark consider the UK to be in?

Denmark considers the United Kingdom to be an “Orange” country, which means that travellers should generally expect pre-entry testing and have a “Worthy Purpose” (i.e. a good reason) for travelling to Denmark. However, Bedford, Blackburn with Darwen, Bolton and Rossendale in the United Kingdom are categorised as Red regions and, therefore, the corresponding entry restrictions are stricter.

What travel restrictions are applicable to habitual residents of orange or red regions travelling to Denmark.

For persons who have not been vaccinated or have previously been infected with COVID-19, and are entering Denmark on the basis of a negative COVID-19 test, the following restrictions apply:Denmark Welcomes Full-Vaccinated Travellers - COVID-19 update.

Orange Regions:

  • Test required after entry
  • Isolation required after entry
  • Foreigners are required to have a worthy purpose* for entering Denmark
  • Foreigners are required to take a test prior to entering Denmark (EU Digital COVID Certificate)

Red regions:

  • Test required after entry
  • Isolation required after entry
  • Foreigners required to have a worthy purpose (shortened list)* for entering Denmark
  • Foreigners required to take a test prior to entering Denmark (EU Digital COVID Certificate)

For persons entering Denmark on the basis of having previously tested positive for COVID-19, the following restrictions apply:

Orange Regions:

  • Foreigners required to have a worthy purpose* for entry to Denmark

Red regions:

  • Isolation required after entry
  • Foreigners required to have a worthy purpose (shortened list)* for entering Denmark

*Worthy Purposes includes work, business, studies etc. A full list of worthy purposes and special worthy purposes can be found here.

Special rules apply for fully-vaccinated travellers

Foreigner nationals who are fully vaccinated with an EMA approved vaccine, including tourists, and who can either

  • present an EU COVID-19 Vaccine Passport; or
  • who are habitually resident in an EU or Schengen country or in Andorra, San Marino, Monaco or the Vatican State, an orange OECD country or a yellow third country are exempt from travel restrictions.

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.
