Denmark opens borders for vaccinated travelers from the UK, the US and 11 other third countries
Denmark has announced that, as of 4 June, fully vaccinated British and American citizens will be able to enter the country without being subjected to testing and quarantine requirements. With the exception of the United Kingdom and the United States, vaccinated travelers from 11 other third countries that are part of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will also be allowed to enter Denmark.
This means that all those who arrive from one of the countries recently admitted will have to present a vaccination certificate - with one of the vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) - stating that they have passed at least 14 days after the second dose.
As arrivals from these countries will now be equated with arrivals from other third countries placed on the yellow list of Denmark, travelers will be exempted from the testing and self-isolation requirements. Specifically, they will not be required to provide a negative test for COVID-19 before or after arrival. The rules do not apply to those who want to travel from a red list country.
