Denmark Travel Advice: Denmark Advises Against Travel To Some EU Countries Denmark Coronavirus Update
In its weekly update of travel guidelines, Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has advised that based on the latest infection figures from the Statens Serum Institut, Danish citizens are to avoid travelling to Bulgaria, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Poland, San Marino, the Vatican.
According to a press release last week of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Nordic mechanism was activated for Sweden, where a regional model is used, so that regions in Sweden with infection rates below 30 remain open (yellow).
“This week, travel to four new regions is discouraged: Dalarna, Gotland, Jönköping and Östergötland due to infection rates.
“The Øresund region with Scania will continue to be open, just as, i.e. Västra Götaland with Gothenburg will be,” the Ministry points out
It also points out that the travel advice does not apply to citizens travelling to their own deserted farm or similar property in Sweden, though other unnecessary trips to this region are still discouraged. They will not have to quarantine for a fortnight upon return in Denmark.
At the same time, it is possible to transit a high-risk country, and transiters will not have to go into self-isolation after returning home if they do not spend a night in the country they transit.
Travellers in transit through an orange region, and who, for example, change means of transport, are encouraged to pay extra attention to minimizing the risk of becoming infected and following the travel advice during a time with COVID-19
Who Is Allowed to enter Denmark from October 19?
Starting from October 17, at midnight, citizens of o the European countries listed above – Bulgaria, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Poland, San Marino and the Vatican – will need to present a purpose of entry when showing up at Denmark’s port of entry.

Special rules apply for Sweden, as regions with infection rates below 30 are kept open.

Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay.
