We encourage you to see the Danish authorities' latest information on entering Denmark on www.en.coronasmitte.dk.
About borders and entry into Denmark as a tourist
You can enter Denmark from COVID-19 high-risk countries without testing or isolation if you are vaccinated or previously infected (positive PCR test, which was performed more than 11 days and less than 180 days ago at the time of entry)
All other travellers must, without undue delay, go into self-isolation and take a test within 24 hours of entry. This also applies even if you are a Danish citizen or have a permanent residence in Denmark. You may end the isolation with a negative PCR test taken at the earliest on the sixth day after entry.
For certain travellers, there are exceptions to these requirements.

Public transportation, restaurants, cultural institutions, shops, night life etc. are from January 1st open without restriction.
