New COVID-19 passport for travelers

July 09, 2020

Danes are now able to show documentation of a negative COVID-19 test while traveling by downloading a personal COVID-19 passport on the National Danish Healthcare Portal,

The COVID-19 passport provides personalized documentation of a negative COVID-19 test result, which can be presented while traveling across country borders. Several countries have imposed travel restrictions in order to limit the spread of COVID-19, and some countries require proof of a negative COVID-19 test in order to avoid quarantine upon arrival.

As soon as the laboratory has analyzed and released the test result, the COVID-19 passport can be viewed, downloaded and printed – just as long as the test is no more than 7 days old and the result was negative.

Certain rules apply in some countries, and changes in such rules can come into effect on short notice. For example, some countries require that you use their national form for test results, and have it signed off by a doctor. In those situations, you must travel with the signed form and can use the COVID-19 passport as supplementary documentation from Denmark.

It is always recommended to refer to the applicable rules on the local Danish Embassy’s website.

The COVID-19 passport has been created by the Danish Ministry of Health, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Danish Police.
