Covid-19: Denmark removes quarantine requirement for arrivals from Bulgaria

As of August 29, Denmark will no longer require people arriving from Bulgaria to go into 14-day quarantine, Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry said, quoting Danish authorities.

Following a weekly update and assessment, Denmark has moved Bulgaria from its orange to its yellow classification of countries.

This means both that citizens of Bulgaria arriving in Denmark no longer have to prove a valid reason for entering the country, and that the quarantine requirement is lifted, Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry said.

Denmark’s recommendation regarding travel to Bulgaria is changed from “refraining from unnecessary travel” to showing “increased attention” during the trip.

Bulgarians wishing to enter Denmark need show only either a valid Bulgarian identity card or passport.

At the same time, the Danish police reserve the right to refuse to admit foreigners, irrespective of the classification of the country they are arriving from, if the foreigners show symptoms of illness, including cough and fever.
