Controlled re-opening of the Danish borders

Updated 25/06/20

Denmark’s borders will open to most European countries from 27 June 2020, based on a set of health measures and analysis. However, borders to Sweden, the UK, Ireland, Portugal and Romania remain closed.

To enter the Denmark, tourists from the approved country must show documentation of a valid booking for a minimum of 6 days on entry. If a tourist wishing to enter shows clear signs of sickness, for example a cough, fever, or similar, they will not be allowed to cross the border.

Danish citizens are allowed to re-enter the country and visitors from other countries can now enter Denmark again under certain conditions.

Business travellers should refer to regulations on the Danish Police website as they are allowed entry on some conditions.
