Please note: Denmark has implemented strict new arrival rules as of October 26, 2020.
As countries open up again, travel restrictions are fast-changing. Travelers should look into the current rules that apply to them for the destination they wish to visit (for example, requirements for a COVID test or possible quarantine, what documentation is required), and also for rules that apply to their return trip (for example, the need to quarantine after returning home).
As of Saturday, September 26, 2020, travelers from Iceland are not permitted to enter Denmark without legitimate purpose. A legitimate purpose can be:
- Employment, residency or education
- Close family relations with people residing in Denmark
- Business with a foreign embassy in Denmark
New rules regarding COVID test results
As of Monday, October 26, 2020, new requirements came into force for people who wish to enter Denmark. People from high-risk countries must have a worthy purpose for entry, and they must present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before entry.
Iceland is considered a high-risk area, and therefore passengers from Iceland must provide such results (with some exemptions, outlined below). Those who cannot provide proof of negative test results will be refused entry to Denmark. Icelandair staff are required to check that passengers have such test results (or exemptions) before boarding.
The certificate must be in a Scandinavian language, English, German, French, Spanish or Italian. At this link is a blank certificate that passengers can have completed in English and signed and stamped by an Icelandic health authority.
Further details about the test results can be found on the official Danish website under the heading 'Proof of negative COVID-19 test required'.
Exemptions (no test results required)
Danish nationals and persons resident in Denmark can enter Denmark regardless of the intended purpose of their entry and without presenting proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
Transiting through Denmark: It is generally possible to transit through Denmark without needing test results.
Full information on all new regulations can be found on the official Danish website.
