In addition to the two countries mentioned above, travelers from the following Greek regions must also meet the entry requirements to Denmark:
Greece: Central Macedonia, West Macedonia, Ionian Islands, West Greece, Central Greece and Peloponnese.
However, the new rules will not apply to fully vaccinated travelers.
“On their return from the yellow countries, travelers who have not been fully vaccinated or who have already been infected must be tested after entering” says the press release issued by the Danish Foreign Ministry.
In addition, the ministry encouraged all passengers to take a “PCR instead of rapid entry test to strengthen detection of delta variant infection in Denmark. “
On the other hand, the Belgian region of Wallonia has been placed on the green list of countries which includes territories considered to be safe because of their epidemiological situation.
Such a decision means that Walloon citizens will be allowed to enter Denmark without being required to follow testing and quarantine rules upon arrival, reports SchengenVisaInfo.com.
In addition, the Danish Foreign Ministry revealed in a statement that the following regions of France are now also included in the green list: Center – Loire Valley, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Normandy, Hauts-de-France, Grand East, Pays de la Loire, Brittany, New Aquitaine, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes.
Finland previously announced that it will open its doors to fully vaccinated passengers who present a valid and authorized COVID-19 vaccination passport upon arrival on July 26.
However, Danish authorities are urging their citizens not to travel to Finland for non-essential purposes in order to avoid an increase in the number of infections.
“We always advise against unnecessary travel to Finland (orange shaded) due to severe entry restrictions for other groups of travelers, which may make it difficult or impossible to complete a vacation,” the precise statement.
Last week, Denmark announced that it had upgraded Greece from the green category to the yellow category after assessing the COVID-19 situation on the latter.
According to figures released by the World Health Organization, Denmark has recorded a total of 309,420 cases of COVID-19 infection since the start of the pandemic.
The same source reveals that so far a total of 2,542 people have died from the virus in Denmark.
The Scandinavian country is the 66th country most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
