Is my country/region open or banned?

See whether your country/region currently meets the COVID-19 infection criteria and is classified as 'open' or 'banned'. The maps and lists are based on the current number of infected people and are updated weekly by the SSI (Statens Serum Institut).

Persons entering Denmark fall into one of the three following categories
Persons resident in Scania, Halland, Blekinge, Schleswig-Holstein or Norway can enter Denmark regardless of the purpose of their entry if their region meets the criteria for being classified as 'open'

If your region is not classified as 'open', you must either have a worthy purpose or present a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before your entry.

Persons resident in countries/regions classified as 'open' (yellow) can enter Denmark no matter the purpose.
If countries within the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom and regions in Sweden do not meet the criteria of the SSI for being open due to an overly high number of infected people, the countries/regions will be categorised as banned countries/provinces.

Countries outside the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom are currently by definition 'banned' countries/regions (orange). See exceptions, that is, third countries that are categorised as 'open', below.

Persons resident in a country/region classified as banned can enter Denmark if they have a worthy purpose.
