Holiday trips between Norway and Denmark will be allowed, but it is not allowed to spend the night in the Danish capital.

Norway and Denmark open for holiday trips between the counties from June 15, but Denmark imposes several restrictions, especially for the capital Copenhagen and nearby Frederiksberg municipality, where tourists are not allowed to spend the night.

For the rest of the country, there is a requirement that at least six nights have been booked in hotels, campsites or other accommodation outside Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, Politiken reports.

When entering, tourists must document that they have booked a stay in Denmark outside Copenhagen, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said during a press conference on Friday.

There will be no corresponding restrictions for Danes in some Norwegian regions as of today, Prime Minister Erna Solberg said at a press conference at the same time in Oslo.

Solberg says the Norwegian authorities are also in dialogue about opening with the other Nordic countries. She says that today there are areas with little infection in all Nordic countries, while some areas have high infection, and that travel advice may become available for specific regions.

“We can risk that a region we now believe has a low infection pressure will have a higher infection pressure, and then you can still not go there, and we cannot receive people from these regions. We will set criteria for this,” says Solberg.
