COVID-19: Borders reopened for vaccinated travelers from U.S., U.K., among other countries

10 Jun 21



The Ministry of Foreign Affairs opened travel for vaccinated travelers from the U.K., U.S. and 11 other countries on June 5.

Key Points:

  • Vaccinated travelers from “yellow” third countries and Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, including the U.K. and the U.S, are now permitted to enter the country without having a “worthy purpose” for travel.
  • Travelers must show proof of a European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved vaccine administered at least 14 days prior to arrival in Denmark.
  • Vaccinated travelers from the aforementioned countries are exempt from the mandatory quarantine requirement but still must adhere to testing protocols. If a traveler has not been vaccinated, he or she will be subject to post-entry testing and quarantine requirements
  • Previously infected individuals must show proof of a positive antigen or PCR test that was conducted between 14 days and 8 months of intended entry into Denmark to be exempt from other testing requirements.

Additional Information: Effective on June 11 until June 26, travelers from the U.K. must provide a negative PCR test conducted within 48 hours of departure to the country. Travelers from red countries are still barred from entering the country. To see a full list of Denmark’s country color categorization click here.
