In 2022, the European Union will introduce ETIAS, a new Travel Information and Authorisation System. ETIAS will become a requirement to travel to Denmark and most European countries. Once available, you will be able to find more information on this website. The European Union official website is, and a specific ETIAS website will soon be launched.

ETIAS Authorization for Denmark Information

By the end of 2022, citizens of visa waiver countries for Europe will be required to apply for an ETIAS for Denmark in order to visit the country. ETIAS stands for European Travel Information and Authorization System and it is an electronic visa waiver that will not only allow short stays in Denmark but in all of the 26 Schengen Zone countries as well.

The EU Parliament and Commission is providing financial support to implement ETIAS Denmark in order to increase safety within European borders. The ETIAS Visa Waiver for Denmark will improve security by pre-screening travelers before they enter any of the Schengen Area countries.

The European Visa Waiver for Denmark will be a multiple entry travel authorization and permit a maximum stay of 90 days within every 180 days. It will be valid for a total of 3 years, so there is no need to apply for ETIAS before every trip to Denmark.

Eligible passport holders are able to apply through the simple ETIAS application for Denmark online, which only takes a few minutes to complete. It is necessary to complete the ETIAS Denmark application form with personal, passport, and travel information, and answer a few questions related to health and security matters, in order to receive an approved Danish ETIAS waiver via email.

Those who apply for the ETIAS to Denmark are able to visit the Schengen Area for purposes of tourism, business, transit or medical reasons. In order to visit Denmark for other purposes, travelers should contact a Danish Embassy or Consulate for further information.

ETIAS Requirements for Denmark

Having a passport from an ETIAS Denmark-eligible country valid for 3 months from the intended date of arrival in Denmark and the Schengen passport-free zone is the main Denmark ETIAS visa waiver requirement in order to submit an ETIAS application.

The Requirements for an ETIAS for Denmark state that the passport used to complete the online application should be the same as that which the applicant will later use to travel to the Schengen Area, as the ETIAS is electronically linked to an individual passport. Travelers with dual nationality should ensure they bring the correct travel document.

ETIAS requirements for Denmark also involve the applicant having:

  • A valid credit or debit card with which to pay the ETIAS Denmark fee
  • A current email address to which a copy of the approved ETIAS for Denmark will be sent.

When traveling to Denmark and the Schengen Area, holders of an approved ETIAS will be able to present the passport with the linked ETIAS to transportation carriers and border control to gain access to Schengen countries.

Further ETIAS Requirements for traveling to Denmark may be announced by the European Commission closer to the launch date and will be published on this website once made available.

Covid Update for Denmark

Last update: 28/04/2021

Danish nationals and residents of Denmark can return to the country, as may their spouses, partners, parents, and children. Residents of Germany’s Schleswig-Holstein region, and passengers arriving from the Blekinge, Halland, Scania, and West Gothia regions of Sweden, the Nordland, Trondelag, Troms and Finnmark regions of Norway, Australia, Iceland, South Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, or Thailand may also enter Denmark if they have a negative COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours prior to departure from the first embarkation point. They do not need to take a COVID-19 test on arrival. Merchant seamen are also exempt from travel restrictions. Individuals returning to their home country directly via Denmark are permitted to do so. Travelers who do not fall into these categories may not enter the country. Passengers aged 13 and older traveling to or transiting through Denmark (not including the Faroe Islands) must carry a medical certificate in Danish, English, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, or Swedish as proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or Antigen test taken at most 24 hours before departure from the first embarkation point or before departure of the last direct flight to Denmark, as well as take an antigen test on arrival (except if traveling to Greenland). Alternatively, travelers may present a certificate (in one of the languages listed above) showing a positive COVID-19 PCR or antigen test result from between 14 and 56 days prior to arrival in Denmark to prove that they have already had the virus and recovered from it. Flights from Iceland to Greenland are suspended until 18 April 2021.

Do Citizens of a Schengen Country need ETIAS for Denmark?

No, citizens of a Schengen country do not need ETIAS for Denmark, as Denmark is in the EU and part of the Schengen Area. The Schengen Area is comprised of 22 European Union countries, including Denmark, and 4 non-EU countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

All countries within the Schengen zone have abolished all passport control and other types of border control within their mutual borders. This means that citizens of Denmark do not need a visa to travel to other Schengen member countries.

Citizens of Schengen countries are permitted free movement over Denmark’s borders and do not need a visa to work in Denmark. They are also not required to meet any visa requirements to live in Denmark for an extended period of time.

However, by the end of 2022, it is expected that citizens of Europe who are not part of the Schengen Area will be required to apply for an ETIAS visa waiver to travel to Denmark for short stays. This includes EU countries who maintain their own visa policies, such as Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Once the electronic visa waiver is implemented, it will also be necessary for non-European citizens who are currently visa-exempt for the Schengen Area to register for an ETIAS Denmark for short stays. This includes countries such as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and New Zealand, among others.

ETIAS is not a visa. Those not eligible to apply for an ETIAS for Denmark are required to apply for a Denmark Schengen visa by making an appointment at the nearest Danish diplomatic mission. It is necessary to download, print, and complete a Denmark visa application to bring along to the appointment.

It is also necessary for the embassy visa to bring a range of supporting documentation to the appointment depending on the type of Schengen visa the applicant requires. Danish tourist visa requirements involve supplying proof of sufficient funds for the intended stay, any hotel reservations made for Denmark, and a travel itinerary for the trip, among other supporting documents.
