June 26, 2020

The Norwegian and Danish authorities announced on Thursday that they would partially reopen their borders in the context of the coronavirus pandemic to tourists from countries in the Schengen area.

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated in a statement that it will be possible to travel to all countries in the Schengen area with the exception of six countries from this Saturday. The limit is based on the infection rate per 100,000 inhabitants, with a maximum of 20 permitted.

This excludes all tourists from the UK, Ireland, Malta, Portugal, Romania and Sweden. “The lifting of travel warnings shows that both Denmark and almost all of Europe are now in a much more favorable position,” said Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod, who said the list is updated weekly.
