Denmark is stepping down its restrictions on entry from other EU countries and opening the borders to tourists from the border areas in Germany and Sweden.

As part of the government’s reopening plan, a number of changes were introduced on Friday, changing travel restrictions in the country.

Until now, there has been a requirement for an essential purpose for everyone who wanted to enter Denmark and who lives in the EU or the Schengen area. This requirement is now being repealed.

Most Europeans will still have to be isolated for a period after entry – if they have not been vaccinated or previously infected.

But this does not apply to people who live near Denmark in Schleswig-Holstein and several areas in Sweden. They can travel freely into Denmark as tourists if they have tested negative for coronavirus.
