Tests remain necessary to enter the country for non residents.

The test for non-residents must be made PRIOR to arrival and if it is a PCR test it should not be more than 72 hours old, if it is an antigene test  may not be more than 48 hours old.

For residents the test may be made after entry to Denmark, it must be done within 24 hours after arrival, it can be either a PCR or an antigene test.

However, for residents we recommend to check with their airline in question that the airline applies the resident rule prior to boarding in a foreign country.
