The Danish government has extended the country’s travel restrictions to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Key Points:

  • Travel restrictions have been extended until Feb. 28.
  • Travelers who wish to enter Denmark must continue to submit negative COVID-19 test certificates from tests taken no more than 24 hours before boarding their inbound flights.
  • Travelers who are not Danish nationals and who wish to enter Denmark must continue to have a “worthy purpose” for entering the county. The list of purposes considered worthy for entering was recently narrowed; however, working in Denmark and important private family matters are still considered worthy purposes, provided they can be documented properly.

Background: Many countries from Europe and other parts of the world imposed new entry and travel restrictions in the second half of December to mitigate the spread of the new COVID-19 variant.

Analysis & Comments: The extension maintains restrictions that will add to the time it takes to enter Denmark. Those seeking immigration services in the country should anticipate the likelihood of delays. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
