Is my country/region open, banned or high-risk?

See whether your country/region currently meets the COVID-19 infection criteria and is classified as open, banned or high-risk. 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 the following 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 proof 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.

Banned countries/regions within the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom

Countries and regions within the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom and regions in Sweden and Norway that do not meet the criteria of the SSI for being classified as open due an overly high number of infected people will be classified as banned countries/regions.

 

Persons resident in a banned country can enter Denmark if the banned country is not classified as high-risk and if the persons have a worthy purpose.

 

High-risk countries/regions within the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom

Countries with a particularly high number of infected people will be classified as high-risk countries.

 

Persons resident in a high-risk country can enter Denmark if they have a worthy purpose, but they must also present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before entry.

 

You will find the list of high-risk countries in the EU, the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom at the bottom of the page: Is my country/region open, banned or high-risk?

Countries outside the EU and the Schengen area as well as the United Kingdom are currently by definition banned countries. See the exceptions, that is, third countries that are classified as open, below.
