Certificate adoption

The Coronapas system is provided by Denmark. It is also already linked to the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

Travelers should be aware of Denmark’s “Coronapas” system, which allows vaccinated individuals, those who have recovered from COVID-19, and those who test negative within 96 hours to attend indoor cafés, restaurants, and cultural activities. However, the rule does not apply to outdoor activities. For the time being, it is only available to digital Danish nationals and those having a national registration number.

The Coronapas is necessary for outdoor events with more than 2000 seated people, such as concerts or football matches.

A corona pass is proof that you fulfill one of the three requirements listed below:

  • You were vaccinated for the first time more than 14 days ago, or you were vaccinated for covid-19.
  • That you have had covid-19 infection during the past 240 days.
  • That you have not tested positive for covid-19 in the past 72 hours.
