Quarantine when entering Denmark From 26 June 2021: phase 4 of the reopening of travel activities in and out of Denmark will begin.The fourth and final phase of the agreement on a gradual reopening of travel activities will enter into force on 26 June 2021, when Denmark will move to a COVID-19 passport-based approach to travel in the EU and Schengen area. From then on, with an EU corona passport, it will be possible to travel into Denmark if you have been tested, vaccinated or previously infected. At the same time, the colors of the travel restrictions are changed and the green color in the travel guides is reintroduced. See list of color categories here

The isolation requirement after entry from the new "yellow" (formerly orange) EU and Schengen countries and regions lapses. As all EU and Schengen countries are either "green" or "yellow", this means that tourists traveling from EU and Schengen countries can enter without having to go into isolation after entry. At the same time, Danes will be able to return home from holiday in the EU and Schengen countries without having to go into isolation after returning home.

When you arrive in Denmark, rules and advice depend on whether you have been vaccinated / have previously beeninfected with covid-19, as well as which country you are arriving from. In most cases, you should be able to present a negative PCR test and a rapid test or an officially approved vaccine certificate. We recommend that you check which rules apply to you when you travel to Denmark.

Advice for returning home
When you leave Denmark, you must be aware of the rules and advice of your country.
For some countries, Denmark is now a red country, therefore there may be rules on quarantine and testing, on return.
Most countries now require that people who have visited Denmark, must be able to present a negative PCR test before returning home.
Several countries also require that you, upon return, be quarantined and have pre-ordered a PCR test in your country.
