From Saturday, following a recent EU review of third countries, the US, as well as Albania, Lebanon, Northern Macedonia, Serbia, and Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao, have all been ranked “yellow”, for the purposes of entry to Denmark.
This means that travellers from these countries and regions no longer need a so-called “worthy purpose” to travel to Denmark, opening the way for trips for tourism and other leisure purposes. Travellers from these countries and regions also no longer need to show a negative coronavirus test before boarding their plane or isolate on arrival (see requirements in the chart from the Danish police below).
The new travel guidelines also open the way for Danes to take holidays to a range of new destinations, without having to isolate on their return.
Greece: Crete, the Ionian islands, Epirus, Western Greece and Central Greece, without having to isolate on their return,
France: Brittany, Aquitaine, Occitania, and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (which includes Nice, Cannes and Marseille)
The government also on Thursday night agreed the fourth and final phase of the political agreement on a gradual reopening of travel activities, which will come into force on June 26th.
From that point, Denmark will allow free travel into Denmark for anyone with an EU Digital Covid Certificate, so long as it shows that they have had a recent negative test, been vaccinated or previously infected.
At that point, all EU and Schengen countries and regions that are today marked “yellow” will become “green”, while those that are “orange” will be marked “yellow”.
