Travelers to Denmark
Former travel restrictions for traveling to North of Jutland is lifted as of the 20th of November.
Persons resident in the regions of Norway, Schleswig-Holstein, Scania, Halland or Blekinge can enter Denmark regardless of the purpose of their entry. If your region does not comply with the criteria for being open, you must have a worthy purpose of entering. Otherwise, you must present a negative COVID-19 test upon entry. See updated info at coronasmitte.dk.
The rules do not apply to freight transporters.
Danish authorities have decided that all passengers from 12 years and above, shall use face mask while using public transportation. This implies also for ferries that travels through danish ports and ports outside, including Norway. Fjord Line is therefor under this regulation, as we operate through danish waters and have a terminal in Denmark.
We encourage our passengers to wear your face mask during the whole journey, in situations and on places where there are crowded.
More information on wearing a face mask when travelling with Fjord Line can be found HERE.
