How to get entry to Denmark

Important information for international students

A political agreement has been reached on rules and restrictions on travels into and out of Denmark. The political agreement will enter into force from 21 April 2021.This means that students travelling from yellow and orange countries can now enter Denmark again. However, the colour of your country will affect the requirements relating to your entry to Denmark. Please check the colour of your country here.

Documentation of worthy purpose for entering Denmark

International UCN students who want to enter Denmark may need documentation to prove that UCN is physically open. For that reason, UCN has prepared a personal document for all international students to show on request as documentary evidence of their worthy purpose when entering Denmark. It is important that students bring either a printed or a digital copy of the document when they want to enter Denmark.

  • Current international students will have received the document in their UCN inbox.
  • Incoming exchange students will have received the document through MoveOn.

The document states that if the Danish authorities have any questions about the document, the authorities should call UCN where we will be ready to help.
