The Danish authorities have announced that the country will no longer apply COVID-19 measures to incoming third country travellers.
Previously, non-EU/Schengen Area travellers who did not complete their vaccination process with a recognised vaccine dose as well as those who were not recovered from the virus, were required to present a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 24 hours when reaching Denmark.
However, the Ministry of Health of Denmark has announced that starting from today, March 29, such a requirement will no longer apply, reports.
“Since March 1, 2022, the only remaining COVID-19 entry restriction has been a requirement for testing within 24 hours of entry into Denmark for persons who have not been vaccinated with a recognised vaccine or previously infected and who enter from countries outside the EU and Schengen. This requirement will be lifted at midnight on the night of March 29, 2022, after which there will no longer be COVID-19 restrictions on entry into Denmark,” the statement of the Ministry reads.
According to this statement, all travellers, regardless of their country of origin and their vaccination status, are now permitted entry to Denmark without having to meet any entry rules. They will no longer be required to present a valid vaccination, recovery, or test certificate upon their arrival in Denmark, no matter the reason for their trip.
Nonetheless, the Ministry has noted that the authorities will still continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. It has been explained that they might re-introduce some of the measures if the situations start to deteriorate.
“The infection situation in both Denmark and abroad is still closely monitored, including in relation to new, worrying virus variants. As part of this contingency, the so-called “emergency brake” can be activated if worrying virus variants arise,” the Ministry emphasised.
Denmark also allows restriction-free entry to all EU/Schengen Area travellers. Since March 1, 2022, EU/Schengen Area travellers have been permitted entry to Denmark without being required to present any COVID-19 proof.
Apart from abolishing its entry rules for incoming travellers, Demark has already facilitated its domestic COVID-19 measures too. Travellers, as well as citizens of Denmark, are no longer obliged to follow strict measures. Currently, only the requirement to wear a face mask when accessing different health facilities remains in place.
In addition to Denmark, another six European countries have also abolished all of their entry rules. Iceland, Ireland, Hungary, Romania, Norway, and Slovenia now permit restriction-free entry to all travellers, even to those who have not been vaccinated or recovered from the virus.
