Danish police have denied entry to 207 people at the Danish-German border within the past 24 hours. 

They were not able to present a negative COVID-19 test during random checks carried out by the police.

Currently, all non-residents entering Denmark by land must show a negative test taken in the last 24 hours and have a reason for their visit. 

This does not apply to Danish residents, but it does apply to everyone arriving by air. 

Different for commuters
However, the rules apply to border commuters slightly differently. 

They are only required to present a negative test carried out within the last week. 

Nevertheless, the Region of Southern Denmark still encourages foreign commuters from Germany to take a quick test at Falck’s test centre in Handewitt before carrying on into Denmark.
