The government has also decided that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ travel guide will be extended to 7 February.
– Given the very serious situation, we have decided to extend the travel restrictions until 7 February, says Nick Hækkerup.
All countries are currently red on the map, which means that Danes can not travel for the next three weeks.
Denmark’s current entry rules came into force on Saturday. They are introduced to stop the spread of the contagious British corona mutation.
The Minister of Justice says that more foreigners than usual have been rejected at the Danish borders over the weekend because they did not live up to the travel restrictions.
If you live abroad, but work in Denmark or have another recognizable purpose, you must present a weekly negative corona test to cross the border.
If you do not have a recognizable purpose in Denmark, a weekly negative test is not enough. In this case, the test must only be 24 hours old.
However, the requirement for a negative test does not apply to Danish citizens or foreigners residing in Denmark.
If you arrive by plane, you must present a negative corona test in any case.
