The governments of Denmark, Norway and Sweden have all loosened their coronavirus-related restrictions in recent weeks. For many people, travel to all three Scandinavian countries is now much easier than it was just a few weeks ago.
That’s great news for travelers keen on making the most of the ski season in Scandinavia, taking a northern lights safari or enjoying a winter city break in one of the Scandinavian capitals.
A word of warning though. The rapid spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has led to record positive test results in all Scandinavian countries. You should bear this in mind if you are unvaccinated, have any ongoing health concerns or if you require a negative test result for any onward travel.
Denmark travel restrictions
From February 1, almost all Covid-19 restrictions within Denmark will be lifted. However, getting into Denmark still requires jumping through a few hoops for the time being if you are not fully vaccinated.
People with valid documentation showing full vaccination with an EMA or WHO approved vaccine or a recent previous infection can freely enter Denmark no matter where in the world they are travelling from.
Advance testing requirements are in place for everyone else, with an isolation period required for unvaccinated travelers arriving from designated “high risk” countries. At the time of writing, this includes Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Norway travel restrictions
Since January 26, travelers arriving in Norway no longer have to observe a mandatory period of quarantine, unless they test positive for Covid-19 upon arrival. The removal of the quarantine period essentially opens up Norway to tourism, as there is no other coronavirus-related travel ban in place.
However, all travelers—including Norwegian citizens and fully vaccinated people—must complete an online registration form and take a rapid antigen test on arrival. These tests are available at all major airports and are free of charge.
Adult travelers without a valid EU-compatible Covid-19 certificate must also take a test (PCR or antigen) no more than 24 hours prior to the time of your first departure flight to Norway.

Sweden travel restrictions
All foreign nationals require a valid Covid-19 certificate in order to enter Sweden. This includes EU-compatible certificates and certificates issued by approved countries including the U.K. and the U.S.
Otherwise, the ban on non-essential travel to Sweden from outside the EU/EEA remains in place, although some countries are exempted from this ban, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Those traveling from exempted countries must show proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken in the 72 hours prior to arrival.
Sweden’s domestic measures remain in place until February 9, at which point they could be removed according to the Public Health Agency. These measures include restrictions on attendances at public events and an 11pm curfew on the serving of alcohol at bars and restaurants.
