The map of "banned" countries is based on the current number of infected people and is updated weekly by the SSI (Statens Serum Institut).
Entry from "banned" countries is possible for "worthy purpose" only (not for tourism).
EU+ comprises EU Member States plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, Vatican City State and the Republic of San Marino.

Rules and Exceptions
Entry restrictions and travel advice are determined on the basis of a set of objective criteria, which include country rates of infection and testing regimes.
Persons residing in an 'open' (yellow) country may travel to Denmark without the need to specify a purpose. Travellers coming from a 'banned' (orange) country may travel to Denmark for "worthy purpose" only (not for tourism).
Travellers from regions where the infection rate is above 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants per week are advised to get tested upon arrival to Denmark. As of 24 September 2020, the infection rate of the following regions in "open countries" has exceeded this threshold: Blagoevgrad (Bulgaria), Ida-Viru Maakond and Võru Maakond (Estonia), Provincia Autonoma di Trento and Liguria (Italy), Vestland (Norway) and Bratislavsky (Slovakia).
A weekly updated map of affected areas is available on the Danish Police website. The map is updated every Thursday, with decisions taking effect on the forthcoming Saturday at 00.00.
Non-Danish citizens with clear symptoms such as dry cough and fever cannot enter Denmark.
