COVID-19: OPEN

Yachting Protocols:

  • COVID-19 related restrictions on entry to Denmark were lifted at the end of March, 2022.

Resources:

Our thanks to Kim Bork Mathiesen, Chairman of the Danish Ocean Cruising Association for assisting with information throughout the Pandemic.

History:

  • Mid-March 2020 all borders to Denmark closed to non-citizens. Foreign yachts were not allowed to enter any Danish ports.
  • Domestic cruising continued to be possible without restrictions, although many ports and marinas were closed.
  • No ports were open for transiting yachts seeking refuge/supplies, although in an emergency situation no Danish port would refuse access for a vessel in distress.
  • On 15 June, 2020, Copenhagen opened its borders to tourists from Germany, Iceland and Norway. There were no restrictions for travelers arriving by yacht from these countries.
  • Permanent residents in the EU and Schengen areas as well as the UK could also enter with a “recognizable purpose”.
  • Yacht owners whose boats were in Denmark were also permitted to enter (as boats are classed as holiday homes).
  • On 1 July, 2020, Denmark’s borders re-opened to most European countries and yachts from all EU Member States, Schengen countries and theUK (except Portugal and parts of Sweden) could enter. Citizens from all other countries were still banned. It was possible to sail to Denmark in your own boat (or in a rented boat) if you could provide proof that you would stay for at least six nights in a marina.
  • At the start of September, the six night rule was abolished and there was no longer a minimum-stay requirement.
  • In early February, Denmark went back into a restrictive lockdown due to a rise in cases. The Danish government had a very cautious approach to reopening, which happened slowly as more and more people got vaccinated. Everyone who wanted to enter Denmark had to take a test and subsequently isolate themselves for ten days. Borders were only open to those travelers with a “worthy purpose” for coming.
  • On 13 May, 2021, borders re-opened with the current protocols.
  • December 2021 protocols were simplified with testing prior to arrival required for the majority of travelers.
  • 29 March, 2022, all travel restrictions relating to Covid were lifted.

    Data Entry says:

    Nexo is a good port of call, on the west side of Bornholm: although mainly fishing, there are spaces for visiting yachts either in box berths or with a line to a stern buoy.

    Visit the harbourmaster to pay (+45 56 49 22 50): walk north (right) along the frontage; take the first left; the office is 100m on the left. In the season, watch for the ferry arriving with around 100 cyclists + bikes getting off & the same number getting on: a sight to behold.

    Data Entry says:

    Don’t expect to be received by a harbourmaster in a Danish yacht harbor, just find a free berth – normally marked with a green sign (red means that the regular owner will return the same day) look for messages like “free until date so and so”. In many yacht harbor, you then have to report to a self-service machine to pay your harbor fee and get a key for the toilet and bath.

    Just follow the instruction on the machine, they are normally at least written in Danish, German and English. You can stay for a long period in a Danish yacht harbor without ever seeing the harbourmaster. In fishing harbors, a harbourmaster can be present – but no guarantee.
