Restrictions on non-essential travel to the EU

The European Union has been working to contain the spread of the coronavirus and support national healthcare systems of its member states in curbing the Covid-19 pandemic.

To slow down the transmission of the coronavirus, on 17 March 2020, EU leaders agreed on a coordinated temporary restriction of non-essential travel to the EU that was enforced until 30 June 2020.

On 30 June 2020, the EU Council adopted a recommendation on the possible lifting of such restriction. The recommendation was updated on 2 February 2021.

Now, member States may lift the temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU from a third country if the epidemiological situation in that country meets the following criteria:

  • the 14-day cumulative Covid-19 case notification rate (the total number of newly notified Covid-19 cases per 100 000 population in the previous 14 days) is not more than 25 cases;
  • the trend of new cases over the same period in comparison to the previous 14 days is stable or decreasing;
  • the testing rate (the number of tests for COVID-19 infection per 100 000 population carried in the previous 7 days) is more than 300;
  • the test positivity rate (the percentage of positive tests among all tests for Covid-19 infection carried out in the previous 7 days) is not more than 4%.

On 14 July 2021, based on the epidemiological situation in Ukraine, the EU Council added Ukraine to the list of third countries for which the temporary restriction on non-essential travel to the EU should be lifted.

Detailed information on restrictions on travel to the EU is published on the website of the Council of the European Union, including in Danish:

Travel restrictions into the Kingdom of Denmark

On 13 April 2021, the Danish political majority entered into an Agreement on Gradual Reopening of Travel Activities, which aims to restore travel opportunities so that citizens of Denmark can travel abroad, and foreigners can visit Denmark.

Under this Agreement, travel restrictions will be automatically adjusted based on a number of factors in the country the trip is made from, primarily on the case notification rate. This will accordingly influence the change for both the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel advice, as well as for entry restrictions and the requirements for testing and isolation after entry into Denmark.

The division of the world into “yellow”, “orange” and “red” categories has been introduced. EU member states and Schengen countries are divided into “green”, “yellow” and “red” categories, respectively.

EU member states and Schengen countries fall into “green” category, as soon as their case notification rate drops to less than 20 cases (per 100,000 population in the previous 14 days). Other countries, in order to move to “yellow” category must meet all the EU epidemiological requirements listed above (see previous section).

A country is categorized as “red” by the decision of the Danish inter-ministerial working group on the basis of an individual assessment by the Danish Statens Serum Institut, primarily given the presence of new dangerous strains of coronavirus in this country.

EU member states and Schengen countries that do not fall into “green” or “red” categories automatically fall into “yellow” category. Other countries that do not fall into “yellow” or “red” categories automatically fall into “orange” category. The movement of an EU member state from “green” to “yellow” category occurs automatically as soon as the case notification rate in it becomes higher than 30 cases. The same applies to other countries as soon as one of the indicators of the epidemiological situation mentioned above rises above a critical level (see previous section).

The colour model will be updated weekly based on the latest data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the Danish Statens Serum Institut.

As of 17 July 2021, the categorization is as follows:

Red category: Argentina, Bangladesh, Botswana, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Eswatini, India, Iran, Lesotho, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Panama, Paraguay, Russia, Surinam, South Africa, Tunisia, Uruguay, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Orange category: all other countries not included in the red and yellow categories.

Yellow category: Albania, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and  Herzegovina, Brunei, Canada, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kosovo, Lebanon, Moldova, Montenegro, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Rwanda, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Ukraine, United States, Qatar and several regions of China, as well as EU member states and Schengen countries that are not included in “red” and “green” categories.

Green category: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and several regions of Greece, Portugal and Spain.

On 17 July 2021, Ukraine moved from orange to yellow category.

Requirements for travellers entering Denmark from the country of the relevant category are given at the bottom of this page.

A detailed description of these requirements, including mandatory Covid-19 testing and 10-day self-isolation, can be found on a joint website of Danish authorities dedicated to efforts to curb the Covid-19 pandemic:

https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations/entry-into-denmark

Required1 (denial of entry if there is no worthy purpose)
Negative Covid-19 test before arriving in Denmark if the trip is by car or ship

The first phase of the Danish model of travel reopening came on 21 April 2021 with the introduction of a colour model for assessing the epidemiological situation in the countries of the world and with the lifting of requirements for a worthy purpose for entry and self-isolation after entry for foreigners entering from “yellow” countries.

The second phase of travel reopening came on 1 May 2021 with lifting of requirement for testing and self-isolation as well as for providing a worthy purpose for entry into Denmark for fully vaccinated foreigners who are habitually resident in “yellow” and “orange” EU member states and Schengen countries. Also, the time period for a negative Covid-19 test before arrival in Denmark has been extended from 24 to 48 hours.

The third phase of the travel reopening came on 14 May 2021 with changing the case notification rate used to determine the colour category of EU member state. This figure was increased from 20/30 to 50/60.

The fourth phase of the travel reopening came on 26 June 2021 with the introduction of vaccination passports (digital green certificates).
