EU president Ursula von der Leyen said recently that fully-vaccinated Americans may be able to visit Europe this summer. While that news has been widely reported, not everyone is so optimistic. With new lockdowns coming into force in some countries and varying progress with vaccination programs, Europe may remain difficult to visit for some time yet. In the Scandinavian countries Denmark, Norway and Sweden, slow progress with national vaccination programs means that travel restrictions are highly unlikely to be lifted to any great extent during May. At present, none of the entry requirements set down by the three countries distinguish between vaccinated and non-vaccinated visitors, although such rules are expected to be introduced later this year. Here are the rules and regulations currently in place for anyone entering Denmark, Norway and Sweden during May 2021. These are of course subject to change at short notice. Latest coronavirus situation: As of April 29, a total of 251,428 positive test results have been recorded since the pandemic began. 2,485 people have died. Vaccination progress: As of April 29, 10.9% of Denmark’s population is fully vaccinated, with 22.5% having received at least one dose. Entry rules and restrictions: Most foreign citizens not resident in Denmark can only enter the country with a "worthy purpose" and a negative Covid-19 test result. If traveling by air, the test result must be shown before boarding the plane to Denmark. A worthy purpose includes employment, critical business travel, and visiting family or a partner. It does not include tourism or any form of leisure travel. Anyone entering Denmark will be required to test and then self-isolate for 10 days. Denmark’s color-coded system allows travelers from some countries to enter for any reason and skip the isolation requirement, although the requirement for a negative test result still applies. However, at the time of writing, just a handful of countries fall into this “yellow” category, including Australia and New Zealand. For updates, see the official Covid-19 website of Denmark. Latest coronavirus situation: As of April 29, a total of 112,715 positive test results have been recorded since the pandemic began. 756 people have died. Vaccination progress: As of April 29, 6.63% of Norway's population is fully vaccinated, with 24.92% having received at least one dose. Entry rules and restrictions: The prime minister has announced a four-step plan to reopen the country over the coming months. However, entry restrictions are set to remain strict throughout May, although there may be some extra family visits and business travel permitted. At the time of writing, the vast majority of non-resident foreigners are only permitted to enter Norway for essential reasons, such as visiting children or a select few business reasons including seafarers and commercial transport operators.
