Denmark is to quarantine arrivals from Scotland and the northeast and northwest of England and also those from Yorkshire and Humber due to rising cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19.
While the rest of the UK has an ‘orange rating’, allowing quarantine-free access for those who have been fully vaccinated if they have ‘a worthy purpose’ to visit, Denmark has rated the above areas as ‘red’.
Anyone who lives in or has visited a red area in the 10 days prior to travelling to Denmark, except Danish citizens, must have a ‘worthy purpose’ to enter the country. They must also provide a PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours, take a test on arrival and self-isolate for up to 10 days.
However, they will be able to end their quarantine early if they take another negative test after four days.
The advice also applies to the Faroe Islands, which are on the UK’s green travel list, while Denmark is amber.
People from the rest of the UK can enter Denmark and the Faroe Islands if they have a worthy purpose, including work, visiting close relatives or to visit their own holiday home, but those who haven’t been fully vaccinated must also self-isolate for up to 10 days.
All British arrivals to Denmark must present proof of a negative PCR test and take a second test on arrival.
