Required Documents for your Trip

Mandatory proof of vaccination
Fully vaccinated travelers must present valid proof of being vaccinated with an EMA-approved vaccine in the European Union, Schengen Area, or OECD country. Travelers must also be permanent residents in one of the listed countries to be considered fully vaccinated.

Travelers are fully vaccinated if they received a full course of vaccination at least 2 weeks and at most 12 months before departure.

Travelers from a country outside of the EU and that have made an agreement with the Danish government to accept foreign vaccination certificates may provide a vaccination certificate issued in those countries. Currently, vaccination certificates are also accepted from these countries: Albania, Israel, Morocco, North Macedonia, Panama, Turkey, and Ukraine. The NHS app of vaccination record or proof of COVID-19 recovery are also accepted.

Travelers that have received a combination of two different vaccines may still be considered fully vaccinated. Please check the link for more information on accepted vaccine combinations.

Travelers with access to the EU Digital Certificate may use it to present proof.
