Denmark and Covid-19 risk

The Government is now advising against all but essential travel to Denmark.

Since 4am on Saturday 7 November 2020 there have been new rules for anyone arriving in the UK from Denmark. This includes travellers from the Faroe Islands and Greenland who transit through Denmark.

British nationals, visa holders and permanent residents who have travelled to Denmark in the preceding 14 days will have to self-isolate along with their household. Other visitors travelling from Denmark will not be permitted to enter the UK.

Since 4am on Sunday 8 November 2020 these measures were extended. Passenger planes and ships travelling directly from Denmark, and accompanied freight, will no longer be able to land or dock at English ports.

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is not advising those already travelling in Denmark to leave at this time. Travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others, including any measures that they bring in to control the virus. Those currently in Denmark should contact their tour operator or airline if they have any questions about their return journey.
