The last coronavirus-related restriction in Denmark has been lifted.

From Tuesday 29 March, people no longer have to be tested within 24 hours of entering the country. This requirement only applied to people who were not vaccinated or had not recovered from a previous infection and who wanted to enter the country from outside the EU and Schengen area.

Danish life has been practically free of restrictions since 1 February - at that time, the government in Copenhagen decided to lift most of the coronavirus restrictions despite record high numbers of new infections.

The two main reasons for this were milder cases after the arrival of the Omicron variant and high vaccination rates.

Only isolated entry restrictions had remained in place, but these were gradually lifted as well.

In the meantime, the number of cases in Denmark has fallen sharply. However, significantly fewer people are being tested than before.
