Frequently asked questions
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We know you will have many questions at the moment - our medical team have answered many of the questions being asked by patients.
Denmark now works on a colour coding system; each colour has a different level of requirements needed. A country or region can be classified into one of four categories: green, yellow, orange or red. The colours determine which entry rules apply to you. The list of countries are reviewed every week so please make sure you are up to date with the most recent lists, Find out more about your country and its status here: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations/entry-into-denmark/categorization-of-countries
No matter what colour, you will still be able to have treatment at Vitanova, it will just have a slight impact on the requirements needed from you to enter.
If the country you are entering from is on the green or yellow list, you can enter Denmark with one of the following:
- A negative covid test done. Antigen test no more than 48 hours or a PCR test no more than 72 hours before travelling.
- Documentation if you have been vaccinated
If the country you are entering from is orange, you will need to have a covid test prior to entering Denmark as well as have a letter from us, outlining why you are coming to the clinic. This is something we will happily provide you before travelling over. Simply show this with your passport and you can enter the country as normal. We will work with you to agree on the best times to travel and then plan your treatment around it.
If you are travelling from a red country you are currently unable to enter Denmark for treatment, however, you can continue with your treatment consultation to get you ready for treatment. We are here to help you at every step so there is no need to delay starting your treatment.
Once you enter Denmark, isolation will depend on the colour code related to your country.
If your country is green or yellow, you no longer need to isolate, so you are free to enjoy Copenhagen before your treatment. If you have been vaccinated and coming from a green, yellow, or orange country then isolation is not needed but if coming from a red country you will still need to isolate.
Find out more about the requirement for each colour code here: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations/entry-into-denmark/legal-requirements-upon-entry
Once you enter Denmark, you no longer need to isolate, so you are free to enjoy Copenhagen before your treatment. However, this changes quite regularly so please keep up to date on if you need to isolate or not by following the link here: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations/entry-into-denmark/legal-requirements-upon-entry
If your country is orange or red, isolation is required. You can do so in your hotel room until you come to the clinic to complete your treatment. During this time you can order food and services etc and use the hotel facilities. You can are able to leave isolation 1) To come to our clinic for your treatment. You are then able to leave when you wish and return home. We will work to coordinate the timings of your arrival and your treatment to reduce your time in Denmark to a minimum (usually just 1 or 2 nights). 2) If you want to stay longer you can, but you will need another negative PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test after the fourth day of isolation.
We will be in regular contact with you throughout your treatment to ensure you are only in Denmark for a minimal time. We have helped many women and couples through this in the last few months to start their treatment straightway

If you are entering from a green or yellow country, you don’t need to take any COVID tests after arriving. If you are entering from an orange or red country, you will need to take a rapid test on arrival. If arriving by air, the test centres are located in the airports. If travelling by boat or car, you will need to get a rapid test done within 24 hours of arriving in Denmark.
If have been vaccinated and entering from a green, yellow, or orange country you do not need to have a test after entering, but will still need one if entering from a red country.
This will be explained in more detail when we help you plan your journey but if you would like any more information please visit: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations/entry-into-denmark/legal-requirements-upon-entry
If your treatment is completed ,you are able to leave when you wish and return home. If you wanted to stay longer in Denmark after your treatment, you are able to break isolation early by having a negative PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test no earlier than your fourth day. You are allowed to travel for this test in quarantine. We will help chose a location closest to your hotel or quarantine location.
TestCenter Danmark operates test stations across Denmark. If you have a Danish CPR number and NemID can book an appointment for testing at www.coronaprover.dk. Foreigners can show up without an appointment and obtain a test, we will help you find and decide which test centre to go to.
