COVID-19 was the motivation behind why Denmark shut its boarders to all countries around the globe. The country was not by any means the only one to close its outskirts – but many others also did same.
Subsequently, Denmark has now opened its fringes for international tourism, permitting both European Union (EU) countries and a couple of select countries outside of the EU to now visit Denmark.
On the 27th June, 2020, numerous European countries except for Portugal and Sweden have now been permitted to make a trip to Denmark.
A portion of the countries who have been consecrated to visit Denmark includes: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, and Vatican City.
According to Denmark, United Kingdom and Portugal are not in the list with an explanation being that, they have not yet met Denmark’s wellbeing rules.
The current boycott is set up until July 10, 2020 of which the decision will be reviewed once more at that time, it might be expanded or evacuated totally.
Denmark previously reacted to the proposal by permitting six of the fifteen countries authorization to enter the country, but only under the suspicion of quick correspondence.
For countries like Canada and Australia who now have their borders shut, that would have brought about Canadians and Australians further being denied entry.
On July 4th, 2020, Denmark withdrew their unique decision and have now said that the 6 countries (Thailand, South Korea, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, and Australia) would now be able to enter Denmark without that clause.
