Regarding persons travelling to Denmark by air

Requirement on negative COVID-19-test is prolonged until the end of 7 February.

To prevent the spreading of the British and South African mutations of COVID-19, the Danish government has imposed a flight ban on transportation of passengers from the entire world who are unable to present a negative COVID-19 test.

The ban will allow passenger flights only under the condition, that all passengers onboard the airplane have been tested negative for COVID-19 within 24 hours of boarding the plane. Children under the age of 12 will be excluded from the test requirement. There will be no restrictions on cargo flights.

Passengers flying to Denmark from Greenland and the Faroe Islands are also exempted.

Passengers, who previously have been infected with COVID-19 and therefore are unable to present a negative test result must present a positive COVID-19 test result from a test performed between 14 days and eight weeks prior to the flight. These passengers are no longer perceived to be contagious.

The flight ban will enter into force 9 January 2021 at 5pm and last until the end of 7 February 2021.

There are currently no specific requirements as to the type of COVID-19 test. The test must show whether a person is infected with COVID-19. This means that both PCR tests and antigen tests are accepted in connection with entry into Denmark whereas antibody tests do not meet the requirement.

It should be noted that the test requirement also applies to Danish nationals and residents of Denmark.


Continuous journeys

For a continuous journey, the following rules apply:

If the passenger travels to Denmark on a continuous journey via transfer at one or more airports, the test can be taken up to 24 hours before boarding at the first airport.

The test must be presented in connection with the last flight that has a destination in Denmark. The airline flying the last flight must make sure that the test was taken within 24 hours of boarding the first leg/part of the journey. This documentation may be in the form of a boarding pass or other proof showing the time of start of the continuous journey.

As an alternative to this, the passenger can take a test during the continuous journey, but prior to the flight with destination in Denmark.
