Answers to the most common questions about the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel advice in relation to travel during coronavirus/COVID-19 can be found below.

Questions regarding health related issues, including coronavirus/COVID-19, should be directed to the Danish Health Authority.

Travelling abroad

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel advice offers only guidance on travel rules and restrictions. It is ultimately your own decision whether you choose to travel.

We advise you to be alert and stay updated on the travel advice relating to the country to which you plan on visiting or transiting through, as this can change with short notice depending on risks to security and safety such as terrorism, war/conflict, social unrest, and natural disasters. You should always follow the local authorities’ instructions.

You should always be alert and stay updated on the travel advice for the country or region in question, as this may change depending on security and safety situations.

The colour categories are based on the general security situation in the country. They are not based on the COVID-19 situation. However, if COVID-19 variants of concern emerge in a given country or region, this may cause the travel advice for these areas to be categorised as red. Currently, there are no such areas.

If you travel to a ‘green’ country or region, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises you to use common sense and pay attention in the same way as you would in Denmark.

If you travel to a ‘yellow’ country or region, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises you to be extra careful.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all but necessary travels to an ‘orange’ country or region.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all travels to a ‘red’ country or region.

When travelling during a time with COVID-19 you should be aware of the risks involved. Your destination may be difficult to reach, and local authorities may impose restrictions at very short notice.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises you to contact your insurance provider before potential departure. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also recommends that you consider your personal safety and that you stay updated on developments via local authorities, news media, and your travel agency.

You can find up-to-date information on COVID-19 restrictions for your travel destination on the websites of the Danish embassies (Danish only).

During your travel

If the local authority where you are located proposes or imposes a quarantine, you should follow their advice. If there are suspected cases of coronavirus where you are, you may need to remain in your hotel room or accommodation for a period, move to quarantine facilities, take tests for coronavirus and, if positive in some cases, be hospitalised abroad.

In this case, you should contact your travel agency, airline, or insurance company as soon as you can.

Returning home to Denmark

There are no longer restrictions when entering Denmark.

Non-Danish citizens with a permanent residence in Denmark are required to be able to document their residency when entering Denmark, for instance by means of a social security card, a residency card, a lease, other forms of identification with an address, or through other credible documentation.

If necessary, the Danish Embassies can issue documentation of Danish residency if you are registered in the Danish Civil Registration System (CPR) and if you have no other form of documentation.

Other

The Faroe Islands are a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, and therefore the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not provide travel advice for the Faroe Islands.

For further information regarding coronavirus in the Faroe Islands, please refer to the Faroese health authorities.

Greenland is a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, and therefore the Ministry of Foreign Affairs does not provide travel advice for Greenland.

For specific information about the rules regarding travel to Greenland, please refer to the Greenlandic health authorities, which is the official source of information about coronavirus in Greenland.
