The police only accept test certificates in the Scandinavian languages, German, English, French, Spanish or Italian.
Valid proof of a negative COVID-19 test 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 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).
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 home 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.
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.
