Denmark will close its borders to foreign visitors from 12pm Saturday 14th March
The Danish Government has just announced that as of 12pm tomorrow (Saturday 14th March 2020), the borders to Denmark will be closed, in an attempt to control the spread of the coronavirus. Danish citizens will be allowed to re-enter the country but unfortunately visitors from other countries will be refused entry.
These extraordinary measures will be in place until at least the 13th April. This is an extraordinarily difficult time for everyone and we hope that anyone planning to enter over the next month can get the help and advice they need to change their plans from their carriers or travel agents.
According to the statement just released from the government, people wishing to visit family members in Denmark will also be denied entry, unless they are visiting a relative who is critically ill. We’re following the news as it happens and the most up to date information on the current situation can be found here: https://bit.ly/39N4DpO
Thank you to everyone who is helping to limit the spread of COVID-19 and for your understanding about this decision. We look forward to welcoming visitors back as soon as we’re allowed to. Stay well out there!
Closures within Denmark in reponse to the coronavirus
In response to the coronavirus the Danish Government has taken steps to close all public institutions and to encourage as many people as possible to be at home over the next two weeks. This means that business will not necessarily go on as usual for the imminent future here in Denmark, and visitors may experience some closures such as smaller shops, cafés, swimming pools or public gathering places like galleries, attractions and concerts.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by the virus and our gratitude goes out to all the health professionals around the globe working tirelessly to contain COVID-19.
Where to go next for information
If you have questions about the coronavirus in Denmark and what this could mean for your travel plans to Denmark, we have two places you can go to get fully updated.
1. We recommend you consult the travel guidelines related to the coronavirus from your national authority.
The Tourist Association Turisthus Nord follows Prime Minister Mette Fredriksen's recommendation that as many employees as possible work at home to delay and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
This means that as of today, March 12, we will close the tourist offices until March 29th.
