The rapid spread of the new COVID-19 mutation has prompted the government to usher in more stringent travel restrictions for foreigners who live in the UK.

Going into effect from December 25 until at least January 3, the restriction will see all UK-based foreigners banned from entering Denmark.

Those except from the restrictions are:

– primary caregivers of children (must produce a negative COVID-19 test taken at least 72 hours before point of travel)

– in family or relationship with a seriously ill or dying person in Denmark (must produce a negative COVID-19 test taken at least 72 hours before point of travel)

– travel pertaining to the transportation of goods

Danish citizens and individuals in the UK who are based in Denmark will still be able to enter Denmark. 

However, they are strongly advised to get tested upon arrival and self-isolate for at least ten days.

Up until December 25, Denmark has temporarily banned flights from the UK. Read more about that here.
