Covid Pass Helps Denmark Open Up

The country's coronapas is enabling places such as bars, restaurants and museums to welcome people back. With some business owners describing the surge in customers as 'amazing'.

Since 21 April, places such as bars, cafes, restaurants, museums and sports stadia have been open to everyone who can show a negative test result less than 72 hours old, or a completed two jab vaccination, using a coronapas digital certificate on their phone.


At the moment, people have to provide evidence via the MinSundhed (My Health) app, or on a paper printout, but at the end of May the digital coronapas will be released in its final form. It will also be enough for people to be able to show that they have tested positive for coronavirus and recovered within the previous 180 days.


Test centres have been established in every district across the country, allowing a record 1 million people to be tested last week - about 25 percent of the adult population. Many get tested several times a week. And the results of all tests are pinged to your mobile phone within a maximum of 30 minutes, so there's little time wasted between your test and the chance to prop up the bar with your friends.
