The Danish government, together with the opposition parties, has agreed to gradually open up for more travel.

The reopening plan is divided into five phases due to the vaccination process and the danger of virus variants, the government stated on its website.

From April 21, the whole world will no longer be considered “red,” and instead, Danes will have to deal with “yellow,” “orange,” and “red” countries and regions.

From May 1, fully vaccinated people from countries in the EU and the Schengen area with low infection rates, including tourists, will be able to arrive in Denmark without having to show a negative corona test or be quarantined.

Additional reopening will take place on May 14, when everyone over the age of 50 has received the first vaccine jab. The last phase will come at the end of June when the EU vaccine passport is expected to be introduced.
