Denmark Reopens for Vaccinated US Travelers

by Jori Ayers Jun 7, 2021

On Friday, June 4, Denmark announced that it’s reopening its borders to US and UK travelers who are fully vaccinated.

US and UK travelers who received vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency — such as Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson — can enter the country. The US Embassy & Consulate in the Kingdom of Denmark states that travelers need to have received the final dose of the vaccine at least 14 days prior to traveling to Denmark.

Vaccinated travelers are exempt from COVID-19 test and quarantine requirements. Children who aren’t vaccinated accompanying vaccinated adults are allowed entry but must get tested for COVID-19. The Danish borders will remain closed for those who aren’t fully vaccinated, unless they qualify for an exception to the border closures.

In the past few weeks, several other European countries have also announced that they will relax their travel restrictions for US travelers, including Spain (June 7) and France (June 9).
