ETIAS for Denmark

etias-denmark

Denmark entry requirements from the UK

Currently, citizens of the UK are allowed to enter Denmark without the need for a visa or any additional travel documentation. The only requirement for these travellers, including British nationals, is to possess a passport valid for at least six months starting from the date of entry into Denmark.

When the ETIAS will be launched, entry requirements will change. UK travellers will need an approved ETIAS visa waiver as well as their biometric passport valid for a minimum of three months from the date of entry into the Schengen Area. The ETIAS will permit UK nationals to enter Schengen Area states such as Denmark multiple times within the validity period of three years or until the passport’s expiration date if this takes place first.

When will ETIAS be necessary to travel from the UK to Denmark?

The ETIAS will be necessary to travel to the UK from Denmark from plugin:content-inject. Until the official launch date, British travellers can still visit Denmark freely as long as they meet Europe entry requirements for UK citizens. With the ETIAS, British citizens will be able to spend up to 90 days every 180 days in Denmark. They may travel for tourism, leisure, business, transit, or short-term study.

How to apply for ETIAS Denmark?

Applying for the ETIAS Denmark will be very easy and quick. In just 10 minutes, travellers from the UK will be able to fill in the online ETIAS application form and pay the processing fee by credit or debit card. Applicants will have to provide the following details in their application form:

  • Personal details such as full name, nationality, gender, date and place of birth
  • Passport details, such as number, country of issuance, date of issuance and expiry
  • Contact details like their home address, phone number, and email address
  • Answers to security-related questions

ETIAS applications will be processed within 24 to 48 hours, meaning that British travellers will need to request their ETIAS just a few days before their trip.

Travellers who have more than one passport need to pay attention to using the same one to apply online and to travel to Denmark. The ETIAS will be electronically linked to the passport and border officials will be able to check the status of an ETIAS by checking each traveller’s passport upon entering the Schengen Area.

Travel to Denmark after Brexit

Despite Brexit, UK citizens are still welcome to visit Denmark with no additional restrictions for short-term travel except for the ETIAS which will soon launch.

However, British travellers must be aware of a few changes and some additional documentation they may require when visiting Denmark or any other EU country:

  • UK passport holders are no longer permitted entry into Denmark through EU border gates.
  • Travellers must possess a passport no older than 10 years and with a minimum of 6 months of validity.
  • UK citizens now require a visa to work in Denmark.
  • British visitors must be prepared to show a return ticket or proof of onward travel upon entry into Denmark.
  • Proof of sufficient funds for the duration of the trip may be required.

Recommended insurances to travel to Denmark

As a replacement for the UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which is no longer valid, the UK government has introduced a new Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). The GHIC is valid in Denmark.

Note: UK citizens who still possess a valid EHIC may use it until its expiration date.

The GHIC does not replace travel insurance. Although this is not a mandatory requirement, it is strongly recommended to get travel insurance for Denmark and all other Schengen Area states.
