On 14 July 2021, based on the epidemiological situation in Ukraine, the EU Council added Ukraine to the list of third countries for which restrictions on non-essential travel, including tourist, to the EU should be lifted.
In view of the above, on 17 July 2021, Denmark moved Ukraine from “orange” to “yellow” category of the national colour model of classification of countries by infection rate.
Thus, on 17 July, the requirement to provide a worthy purpose for Ukrainian citizens entering Denmark was lifted.
Also, from this date, the requirement for self-isolation for 10 days after arrival in Denmark was lifted as well.
There is still a requirement to present a medical certificate with a negative Covid-19 test result taken before entry into Denmark, when traveling by car or ship. However, the Danish police may require that a confirmatory Covid-19 test be taken within 24 hours after entry into Denmark at one of the testing centres.
If you arrive in Denmark by plane, you do not need to do this test, as it is taken mandatory straight at the airport.
If a citizen of Ukraine is fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (Comirnaty/Pfizer-BioNTech, Janssen/Johnson & Johnson, Spikevax/Moderna, Vaxzevria/Oxford-AstraZeneca), and can confirm this with Covid- certificate (coronapassport) then it is not required to take any tests. The same applies to people previously infected with Covid-19, who can confirm this with a medical certificate with a positive Covid-19 test result taken from 2 to 12 weeks before entry into Denmark or with Covid-certificate.
Please note that Ukraine’s shift to “yellow” category is not definitive, and may be cancelled by Denmark if the epidemiological situation in Ukraine worsens (for example, if the cumulative case notification rate is more than 25 cases or the test positivity rate is more than 4%).
More information on the Danish colour model of classification of countries by infection rate, as well as requirements for travellers entering from “yellow” countries, can be found on the Embassy’s website under “Restrictions due to Covid-19” section.
