Important to note:

Different requirements for testing and self-isolation apply depending on where you are travelling from. This is due to the different levels of risk categories (COVID-19 risk countries, COVID-19 high-risk countries and countries with variants of concern). It applies to EU and Schengen countries in particular that no distinction is made between COVID-19 risk countries and high-risk countries. The same rules apply in these countries regardless of which EU or Schengen country you are entering from.

Fully vaccinated persons who can document their vaccination by means of a third country’s vaccination certificate whose status has been deemed equivalent to the EU digital COVID certificate by the European Commission may enter Denmark without restrictions, i.e. without being required to be tested or self-isolate. This does not apply, however, if you are travelling from, or within the past 10 days have stayed in (except in transit) countries, regions or areas with variants of concern (there are currently no such countries, regions or areas).
