Forbes magazine reports that just last May 15, 2021, Denmark is now open to travelers coming from fellow EU member-states. Since most EU countries are classified within the 'yellow' (low infection rates) list of countries, those coming from these places have little to no travel restrictions to face upon arrival. Incidentally, this also applies to a handful of non-EU countries included in the Union's 'yellow' list. At the moment, they only include Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand. Meanwhile, travelers from countries in the 'orange' list, such as Finland, Iceland, Malta and Portugal, are still required to show negative Covid-19 tests taken at least 72 hours prior.
This new development comes as the second phase of Denmark's plan of reopening the country this summer of 2021, according to SchengenVisa Info. In a statement released by the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it said, '“The incidence limit for opening/closing yellow and orange countries/regions in the EU and Schengen countries is raised from the previous 20/30 to 50/60 (100,000 / 7 days). The country and regional colors as a result of the new incidence limit will be announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday afternoon and will be valid from Saturday at 16.00.”
This comes before the EU fully implements the Digital Green Certificates by June 2021. The 'certificates' will be part of a new vaccine passport system that will allow travelers free movement within the EU. They will serve as legal documents proving that the holder has been vaccinated, tested negative, or has fully recovered from Covid-19. It will become part of the legal documents, alongside one's Schengen Visa and valid passport, that the EU will require to be granted entry into the continent.
