Denmark Imposes Quarantine For S’pore Travellers, Shorter Isolation For Those Who Test Negative

Denmark Will No Longer Recognise S’pore Vaccination Certificate From 11 Nov

Last month, Denmark was among one of the 9 countries which Singapore launched new Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) with.

This meant that travellers would not require to undergo quarantine while travelling to the countries listed in the VTL.

However, on Thursday (11 Nov), the Embassy of Denmark in Singapore declared that they do not currently recognise Singapore’s vaccination certificate.


Hence, the Danish government will require travellers to undergo an initial 10-day quarantine. The authorities will release travellers from isolation if they test negative on their 4th day.

S’pore travellers to quarantine when travelling to Denmark

In a Facebook post shared on Tuesday (11 Nov), the Danish Embassy declared that Denmark will no longer recognise Singapore’s Vaccination Certificate.


Essentially, there is no difference between vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers from Singapore. However, there will be exceptions for the following:

  • Fully vaccinated Danish Citizens (regardless of where they’re from)
  • Children below 16 years old
  • Business and official travel
  • Travellers with a valid EUDCC or Danish Coronapas

This comes after Singapore was classified as a high-risk country for travel to Europe, as reported by The Straits Times.

The Danish government will now require travellers from Singapore to undergo a 10-day quarantine.

Travellers will, however, be able to end their quarantine early if they test negative on the 4th day.

This negative result will have to come from a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

Travellers can rebook or refund flights from SIA

Speaking to Channel NewsAsia (CNA), Singapore Airlines says affected customers can rebook their flights or request a refund at no additional charges.

This can be done through an assistance request form on Singapore Airlines’ website.

As it stands, Singapore will allow the remaining European countries in the VTL to enter Singapore without quarantine.

Denmark protecting its citizens

The news will come as a downer for those who have booked flights to Denmark during the upcoming holidays.

However, just like Singapore is protecting its citizens, Denmark is also looking out for their own too.

We hope these changes won’t be permanent and that with time, the relevant authorities will ease the travel restrictions as Singapore’s situation improves.
