Please note that under the restrictions imposed by the Danish government due to the spread of coronavirus infection, entry into Denmark is also restricted from some countries.
Currently, the main factor regulating the possibility of unimpeded entry into Denmark is the colour category of the country where you are travelling are from, which is regulated by the inter-party Agreement on Gradual Reopening of Travel Activities, concluded by the Danish political majority.
At the moment, entry into Denmark without worthy purpose is possible only from countries that are labelled as “yellow” and “green”. Entry from “orange” or “red” countries is only possible if the traveller has a worthy purpose to visit Denmark. The list of such purposes is given below.
The Danish National Police, carrying out border control, denies entry to citizens of “orange” and “red” categories who cannot present or confirm a worthy purpose for traveling to Denmark. This also applies to holders of biometric passports.
From 17 July 2021, Ukraine is labelled as «yellow».
* Full list of close relatives who have the right to enter: spouse, partner, bride (groom), parent, stepparent, grandparent, stepgrandparent, sister (brother), stepsister (stepbrother), child, stepchild, grandchild, stepgrandchild.
The relationship must be confirmed by a relevant document or by Solemn declaration on relationship for use in connection with entry into Denmark
WARNING! The Danish police have the right to ask for documentary evidence of each of the above reasons, for example, in the case of a business meeting you will need an official mail or e-mail from a Danish company confirming your business relationship with it and clearly stating the time and place of the meeting. In addition, in most cases you must provide the contact details of the relevant contact person in Denmark, who can confirm the information you have provided.
Any purposes other than those mentioned above are not considered as worthy!
