Denmark opens its doors a little wider for tourism

The Danish authorities have followed up the 15 June opening of the country’s border to tourists and other visitors from Germany, Iceland, and Norway, and, from 27 June are allowing citizens from a range of other EU countries to visit also.

There are some conditions, however. The Danish border is open to citizens from EU countries with fewer than 20 confirmed cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants and who have pre-booked accommodation for a minimum of six days.

The list of countries and their infection rate is updated every week and Denmark’s travel guidelines will be based on this. At the moment, citizens of all European countries including the UK can travel to Denmark except for Sweden and Portugal. Visitors can also enter Denmark for the purpose of attending meetings.

As of 8 June, conferences and meetings of up to 500 persons are allowed as long as participants are mainly seated throughout the event. Large gatherings, such as festivals and other big events, remain banned through 31 August 2020.

Most educational institutions, shops, shopping centres, museums, zoos, amusement parks, cinemas, restaurants, bars and cafes etc. are open again in Denmark, with safety restrictions in place.

The authorities are advising people to avoid using public transport where possible or to travel outside of rush hour.
