  1. Can I and my crew get to my boat and back?
    From 27th June, the Danish government have introduced a new model for opening borders and facilitating travel for countries in the EU and Schengen areas as well as the UK. Opening is conditional on countries meeting certain criteria such as a low number of infected persons. The level has to be below 20 per 100,000 inhabitants per week. If the level reaches 30 the country’s status will change to "quarantine". As at 25 June the UK and all EU and Schengen countries apart from Portugal and the greater part of Sweden are open countries. See the Danish Police website for greater detail.

    If you are from an open country you can go on holiday in Denmark in your own boat or in a rented boat if you can provide written proof that you will stay for at least six nights in a yachting marina. You do not have to spend all six nights in the same marina.

    Foreigners with clear symptoms such as dry cough and fever cannot enter Denmark.

  2. Restrictions sailing in-country and cross-border
    See above for Sweden. Otherwise no restrictions.

  3. Social restrictions and requirements (and any special points)
    It is not mandatory to wear a mask in Denmark. People are asked to keep their distance and to stand at least 1m apart. Many shops have a maximum number of customers that are permitted in them at any one time. Fines are not levied by the police for breaking regulations but warnings might be given.

    Restaurants and cafés have reopened; social distancing rules still apply.

Status Summary

Faroe Islands

  1. Can I and my crew get to my boat and back?
    The Faroe Islands use the same list for open/closed countries as Denmark. See the Danish Police website (below) for the list.

    Everyone coming to the Faroe Islands from overseas is required to be tested upon arrival for Covid-19, regardless of nationality or residence. Children under 12 are exempt from this requirement.

    Passengers on yachts and pleasure craft can book a Covid-19 test with the company Thetis. You must self-quarantine on the boat until your test result is available (usually within 24 hours).

    Travellers from banned countries are not allowed to enter the country without a recognised reason. Tourism is not a recognised reason.

    If you are travelling from a banned country (usually a country other than EU and Schengen countries and the UK), you must go into self-quarantine for 14 days. See the list of open and banned countries on the Danish Police website (below).

    The Faroe Islands have successfully reduced the spread of Covid-19 and wish to keep it that way.

  2. Restrictions sailing in-country and cross-border
    See above for Sweden and other countries. Otherwise no restrictions.

  3. Social restrictions and requirements (and any special points)

    Restaurants and cafés have re-opened but are subject to closing times; social distancing rules still apply.
