COVID-19 and Weddings in Denmark  

UPDATED 24 July 2021.


The world is divided into green, yellow and and red countries / regions (EU and Schengen)  and yellow, orange and red countries (for countries outside EU and Schengen), depending on how the epidemiological picture looks like.

The overviews given under the different categories of countries and regions help you better understand the restrictions that apply in your situation. 

The incidence limit for closing / opening yellow and orange zones is  50/60 infected per 100,000 citizens per week


A regular update will be introduced here once a week, at Friday after 16.00
