Corona FAQ

Update 10 July 2020

Can I travel to Denmark for a camping holiday?
Yes, you can travel to Denmark if your country has less than 20 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and you can document a booking of six nights minimum.
Every week, the Danish authorities publish a list of countries, whose citizens are allowed to come to Denmark on holiday purposes. The vast majority of citizens from the EU, the Schengen area and Great Britain are allowed entry into Denmark. See the list of countries here.

What documentation do I need to be allowed to cross the border into Denmark?
• Length of booking (must be at least six nights)
• Number of people on the booking

• Name of the person who made the booking - but preferably on all guests

Special rules for residents from Schleswig-Holstein, Norway and the Swedish counties of Skåne, Halland and Blekinge

If you are resident in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, Norway or the Swedish counties Skåne and Blekinge you can travel freely into Denmark - without having to book six nights. You must be able to prove that you live in Schleswig-Holstein, Norway, Skåne or Blekinge when crossing the border.

Under normal circumstances, the same rules apply to residents of the Swedish county of Halland – but the infection rate is too high in this region at the moment. If you live in Halland, you can still travel to Denmark by presenting a negative COVID-19 test made within 72 hours before arrival.

Special rule for resident from the Nordic countries
If a Nordic country puts a quarantine measure into place, it is then subject to a regional scheme. This means that you can only travel to Denmark if you live in a part of this country from which entry into Denmark is allowed. The six-night booking requirement continues to apply.

At the moment, only Sweden is placed under a regional scheme. Västerbotten, Kronoberg, Skåne and Blekinge is currently the only open county.

You must prove that you are resident in one of the Nordic countries when crossing the border. In addition, you must document the number of nights booked, the number of people on the booking and the name of the person who made the booking.

Are you a permanent guest on a campsite in Denmark?
All residents from Schengen Area and UK who are permanent guests on a Danish campsite are allowed to travel to Denmark. The six nights booking requirement does not apply.

They must be able to present their contract with the campsite at the border to be allowed entry into Denmark.

You can bring with you your spouse, partner, fiancée, boyfriend, parent, stepparent, grandparent, stepgrandparent, child, stepchild, grandchild and stepgrandchild, as well as other members of your household. You must travel with the person who made the booking and bring proof of your family relationship. For example, marriage certificate, birth certificate, proof of cohabitation, etc.

General questions

Do I have to show a proof of payment or is a reservation enough?
A reservation is enough.

If you travel as a group
When crossing the border, you must present a booking confirmation stating the name of the person who booked the stay.
The person on the booking must be with the group of travellers when crossing the border.
If your group travels separately, ask the campsite to put all the names on the booking or to send you a confirmation email with all names. This will allow you all to cross the border even if you travel separately.

Can I drive around Denmark in camper after the first six nights?
Yes, you can.

Do I have to book the six nights in the same place?
No, the stays may be divided up. E.g. three nights on one campsite and three nights on another.
Simply provide proof that you have booked six nights in total.

Should I wear a face mask in Denmark?
No, you don't have to.

What are the rules once on the campsite?
The Danish authorities have set out some general guidelines followed by all campsites.

Please note that each campsite is different, and the guidelines may be implemented slightly differently by the individual campsites.
