The police only accept test certificates (other proof of COVID-19 test than the EU Digital COVID Certificate) in the Scandinavian languages, German, English, French, Spanish or Italian.
A COVID-19 test certificate can be:
- a certificate issued by a health services provider.
- a certificate filled in and signed by a healthcare professional.
- a certificate filled in and signed by a person who has been trained, appointed and authorised to supervise swabbing and the processing of swabs in connection with supervised COVID-19 antigen testing within fields like the educational sector in Denmark.
A COVID-19 test certificate filled in by the person tested or a close relative is not valid. Therefore, home test kits available in supermarkets and other shops will not be recognised as valid proof of a negative or positive COVID-19 test.
The name of the person tested, the time of the test and the name of the issuer of the certificate must appear clearly from the certificate.
The test must not be inconclusive (inconclusive means that the test did not provide a clear result or that the analysis was void).
The police will refuse entry to foreigners habitually resident abroad if there is any doubt about the validity of the test certificate.
You are free to use the certificate form below, which meets the above requirements.
Self-declaration form for use in case of a negative COVID-19 test
For negative test certificates
At this point, no specific type of negative COVID-19 test is required. The test must show whether a person is infected with the novel coronavirus. This means that both PCR tests and antigen tests are accepted in connection with entry into Denmark, whereas antibody tests do not meet the requirement. Supervised self-tests, including those used for children, pupils and students, also meet the requirement. By contrast, home tests kits available in supermarkets and taken by the individual him or herself do not meet the requirements.
However, please note that there is a difference in the requirements applicable for the time of test depending on the type of test. See more below.
Also note that foreigners habitually resident in red countries or the United Kingdom are required to present a negative PCR test taken before entering into Denmark.
For positive test certificates
Only positive PCR tests can be used as documentation that you have previously been infected with COVID-19. The test must have been performed at least 2 weeks and at most 12 months before the time of entry.
