Denmark lifts the ban on flights from the UAE

Denmark issues an important decision today regarding the return of international aviation

The UAE embassy in Copenhagen said today, Saturday, that the Danish authorities have decided to lift the ban on flights coming from the UAE, starting tomorrow, Sunday.

The embassy said in a tweet that those coming to the Kingdom of Denmark are obligated to undergo a coronavirus test and isolate for a period of 10 days, adding that this procedure will be applied from February 7 to 28.
Flights from the country were initially banned for five days on January 22nd due to concerns about the reliability of Covid-19 tests in Dubai. The concerns revolved around rapid tests at some private clinics in the city.

The ban was later extended until February 2nd while Denmark's authorities were “in constructive dialogue with authorities in the UAE" according Denmark's transport ministry.

It added that various models were being drafted for testing solutions and that the tests would be studied and assessed by Danish authorities.

Passengers travelling from the UAE to Denmark must present a negative result no older than 24 hours before boarding. On arrival, they must take another test and isolate for 10 days, the embassy said, adding that these rules apply until 28th February.
