CAN I ENTER DENMARK AS AN EXCHANGE STUDENT TO AALBORG UNIVERSITY?
As of 21 April 2021, Danish authorities have categorized all countries as yellow, orange or red.
Conditions for entering Denmark vary between these categories.
As both the rules for each category and the countries in each category tend to change on short notice, we will not be posting specifics on the website.
To find out more about your options please:
- Go to the website of the Danish police
- In the section "Where are you travelling from"/"Country categories" find out which group you belong to
- Then read the section that applies to you, either:
- If you hold a residence permit for Denmark and travel from a country categorised as red please contact the Arrivals Hotline of the Danish police that you'll find on the website of the Danish Police. The written information on their website is currently unclear on this area.
- "Foreigners habitually resident abroad" (most exchange students coming to AAU)
- "Foreigners habitually resident in a border region" (a few exchange students coming to AAU)
If you are not sure how this information applies to your specific situation, please don't hesitate to contact the Arrivals Hotline of the Danish police that you'll find on the website of the Danish Police.
Please note that different conditions such as negative Covid-19 test and self isolation still apply. For more information, please visit the website of the Danish police.
How to prepare
Please read the sections mentioned above and make a comprehensive list of the steps that you need to go through.
Follow these steps.
Please note that as countries can change category often (once a week when this was written) you might not be able to plan your travels as well in advance as you would have normally done.
While the minimum requirements vary a bit you will come along way, assuming that (if you are eligible for entry) you will need to provide a negative COVID19 test no more than 24 hours old, be tested upon arrival, self isolate for ten days upon arrival.
IS TEACHING ONLINE OR ON CAMPUS?
Teaching is still mainly online, however as of 12 April some activities for some students start moving on campus. For further information, please see the
