Denmark Opens For More Destinations But Sweden Is Excluded


On Thursday, the Danish government presented its new travel advice. Now the Danes can travel to all countries in the EU and Schengen, as long as the infection is low. Therefore, the Swedes still have to wait for visits from both Danes and Norwegians.

During a press conference on Thursday, Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod announced that Denmark is open for travel to all Schengen and EU countries.

Danes can travel freely in most of Europe as long as the level of infection is low, so they cannot yet travel to Sweden or Portugal.

The new travel councils will enter into force on Saturday 27 June.

Open to Norwegians

The borders between Norway and Denmark have been open since 15 June.

Norwegians, on the other hand, must ensure that they have booked at least six nights in advance.

It was previously known that you could not stay in Copenhagen or Frederiksberg, but that rule has now changed.

The same rules also apply to travelers from Germany and Iceland.

Many Danes vacation at home this summer. According to VG, there is little capacity in some resorts.

The updated travel advice for Norway came into force on Monday, and Norwegians can now travel to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Norwegians cannot travel to Sweden without having to quarantine, with the exception of the island of Gotland south of Stockholm.

Norwegian travel advice for other European countries such as Spain and France will come on July 15.
