January 8, Archived Alert Related to COVID-19 (Temporary Entry Restriction to Denmark)

January 8, 2021
Danish authorities held a press conference today announcing a temporary restriction limiting entry into Denmark for several categories of visitors who had previously been allowed to enter under ‘worthy purpose’ exceptions to the COVID-19 travel ban – including visiting students. Case numbers continue to trend downward in Denmark; the new restriction is part of an effort to limit the import of new COVID-19 variants now being discovered in the UK, South Africa etc.
This restriction, which is currently set to be in place from January 10-17, does not impact students already in the country, but could of course have implications on our Spring Semester students’ ability to enter Denmark on January 16 as planned. DIS is waiting for further details and will meet with Danish immigration authorities Monday morning local time in order to update our incoming semester students.
