12.01.2022 – The corona passport will be changed, and cultural life can reopen on Sunday

Wednesday evening there was a press conference with, among others, the Minister of Health, Magnus Heunicke. The Epidemic Committee in the Parliament had before the conference approved the government's proposals to uplift some of the restrictions in place, mostly for the cultural sector, while there was a majority without the government for implementing the Superliga-model for the number of people allowed for museums, venues etc., lifting the number of people allowed from 500 to 1.500. There will also be a change to the corona passport, and a few citizens will soon be offered a fourth injection.


  1. The validity of the second injection in the corona passport is reduced from 7 months to 5 months (For those under 18 will the second injection be valid until they turn 18).

  2. Various cultural institutions such as amusement parks, museums, zoos, art galleries, folk high schools, etc. will be allowed to reopen with mandatory use of the corona passport and face masks (when indoors).

  3. Other parts of cultural life (theatres, venues, conferences and indoor sports) will be allowed to reopen with a Superliga-model, allowing a total of 1.500 spectators indoors.

  4. All other restrictions are extended until the 31st of January for now. The requirement of being able to show a negative corona test when entering Denmark is also extended until the 1st of February (Danish residents can take a test within 24 hours of arriving). The validity of the full (second) vaccination is also reduced from 12 to 9 months.
