Who can visit Scandinavia in February 2022?

Many people find it much easier to travel to the three Scandinavian countries than it was a few weeks ago.

This is great news for those who want to make the most of Scandinavia's ski season, take a northern lights safari, or enjoy a winter city break in one the Scandinavian capitals.

However, a word of caution. All Scandinavian countries have recorded positive test results due to the rapid spread of Omicron, a variant of Covid-19. This is something you should keep in mind if your current health issues, unvaccinated status or need a negative test result to travel onward.

Denmark travel restrictions

All Covid-19 restrictions in Denmark will be lifted starting February 1. If you're not fully vaccinated, however, it is still possible to enter Denmark.

Anyone with valid documentation proving that they have been fully vaccinated with an EMA/WHO approved vaccine or have had a previous infection can enter Denmark without restriction, no matter from where they are traveling.

All other travelers must undergo advance testing. Unvaccinated travelers from high-risk countries will be subject to an isolation period. This includes Australia, the U.K., and the U.S.

Norway travel restrictions

Travelers arriving in Norway after January 26 no longer need to adhere to a mandatory quarantine period unless they are positive for Covid-19. Because there is no other coronavirus-related travel ban, the removal from the quarantine period opens Norway up to tourism.

All travelers, including Norwegian citizens and fully-vaccinated persons, must complete an online registration and undergo a rapid antigen testing upon arrival. These tests are free and available at all major airports.

Adult travelers who do not have a valid EU-compatible Covid-19 Certificate must take a test (PCR/antigen) at least 24 hours before your first flight to Norway.

Sweden travel restrictions

To enter Sweden, all foreign nationals must have a valid Covid-19 Certificate. This includes EU-compatible certificates as well as certificates issued by countries approved, such the U.K. or the U.S.

The ban on travel from non-essential countries to Sweden remains in effect, but some countries are exempt from the ban. Exempted citizens must provide proof that they have passed a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours before arriving in Sweden.

The Swedish government's domestic measures will remain in effect until February 9, when they could be lifted by the Public Health Agency. These measures include restrictions on attendance at public events as well as a 11 p.m. curfew for alcohol consumption at bars and restaurants.
