Travel to Denmark

Guidelines have been updated to reflect requirement changes for passengers from specified countries. Please refer to the website of the Danish Police for information on travel in and out of Denmark and the entry requirements before you travel.

Effective 21 December 2020, border control will be applicable to customers travelling to Sweden via Copenhagen. Borders to Sweden will be closed for all passengers and transfer in Denmark to Sweden will be prohibited. Exemptions to below passengers are applicable:

  • Swedish citizens
  • Persons with residence permit in Sweden
  • Persons with permanent residence (home) in Sweden

COVID-19 testing requirements

All inbound passengers must have a negative COVID-19 test certificate for a test taken not older than 24 hours prior to boarding the aircraft. This also applies to passengers that are in transit/ transfer via Denmark. The 24 hours are calculated from the time of departure of the first flight when boarding the aircraft at point of origin. If the passenger is on a connecting flight, the time of the test validity is counted from the first flight. For example, when travelling from Singapore to Copenhagen via Dubai, the test result shall be presented at the time of check-in in Singapore. Customers have to present the test certificate at both, check-in at the origin airport and at the transfer airport prior to boarding their connecting flight. Both COVID-19 PCR test and anti-gene tests will be accepted.

Previously COVID-19 infected passengers

Passengers, who previously have been infected with COVID-19 and therefore are unable to present a negative test result must present a positive COVID-19 test result from a test performed between 14 days and eight weeks prior to the flight. These passengers are no longer perceived to be contagious.


Children under the age of 12 are exempt from the COVID-19 PCR test requirement.
