The Government of Denmark has decided to remove travel restrictions for Portugal after months of being kept out owing to preventive measures for the COVID-19 pandemic. That must be good news for the Portuguese who are trying to come to Denmark on a Denmark tourist visa.
Denmark has recognized the improvement Portugal has shown in its epidemiological situation. These touch areas of the country’s ability to test for COVID-19 on a large scale, find out positive cases, control their spread, and treating them in the best way possible.
Among countries that have already lifted travel restrictions on Portugal include:
- The Netherlands
- the Czech Republic
They have eased the restrictions either fully or partially.
In July 2020, Denmark allowed resident permit holders of Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, Canada, and Australia to enter the country’s territory. This was the country’s plan to reopen for third-country residents traveling for non-essential purposes in a gradual manner.
On June 27, 2020, Denmark began to welcome tourists from most of the EU countries after an analysis of the epidemiological situation in each nation. Even then Portugal was not recognized as a safe country to be permitted to enter Denmark owing to the rise in COVID-19 cases.
The countries that were not allowed to enter Denmark also included:
- Sweden (except Västerbotten region)
- The UK
Citizens of these countries weren’t permitted in Denmark.
Denmark has also taken positive decisions to help seafarers stranded in foreign nations, unable to return home. In July 2020, Denmark’s government collaborated with Danish Shipping, the Danish Engineers’ Association, and the maritime section of the Danish Metalworkers’ Union to help those seafarers come back home as early as possible.
