German and Swedish neighboring regions to Denmark have special travel rules.
From June 27, tourists from Skåne, Halland and Blekinge in Sweden, as well as Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, no longer have to fulfill a requirement for six nights in Denmark to be allowed to enter the country.
This is reflected in an update of the travel guides sent by the Foreign Ministry on Thursday.
– There will still be a requirement for six days’ accommodation for tourists in Denmark, unless you reside in Schleswig-Holstein or Skåne, Halland or Blekinge, writes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Since the end of May, the Danish authorities have demanded that German and Norwegian tourists show proof that they have booked six nights in Denmark before being closed inland.
In the first place, the nights did not have to be in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg Municipality. However, it was changed on Friday last week, so overnight stays in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg Municipality are also valid.
The requirement for the six nights will apply to all tourists from June 27, according to the Foreign Ministry’s statement on Thursday.
The rules for travel to and from Nordic countries will be subject to a special set of rules from June 27.
The United Kingdom and countries in EU Schengen cooperation will be subject to a number of criteria that determine whether to travel from the country to Denmark.
However, if a Nordic country does not meet the criteria, the Danish authorities will make a region-by-region assessment in the countries.
For regions in Sweden, for example, that meet the criteria, there will thus still be green light, even though Sweden as a whole does not meet the criteria.
For Schleswig-Holstein, Skåne, Halland and Blekinge, even if the region does not meet the criteria, you will be able to enter Denmark from the regions if you can show a negative test that has been carried out no more than 72 hours before entry.
