Denmark has officially reopened its borders to fully vaccinated American and British travelers, the country's tourism marketing organization VisitDenmark announced on June 4.

To be recognized as fully vaccinated, a visitor must have received the final dose of a European Medicines Agency–approved vaccine at least 14 days before arrival. Vaccines approved by the EMA include Moderna, Vaxzevria (also known as Astra Zeneca), Vaccine Janssen, Comirnaty, Johnson and Johnson and Pfizer.    

Fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test or isolate upon arrival. Unvaccinated children traveling with vaccinated people, as well as pregnant or breastfeeding women, will be required to present a negative PCR test taken no more than four days before arrival. 

How to prove you've received the vaccine and can travel

Danish citizens are required to have a corona passport which proves a person has either been fully vaccinated, previously infected or has tested negative within the past 72 hours. Though there have been talks about possibly making this a requirement for all travelers, no new protocols have been officially announced. 

The relaxation of Denmark's restrictions comes as many other European countries like Greece, France, and Spain have also announced plans to begin welcoming travelers this summer.
