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.
Yes you can. You must have a border letter from us documenting that you are in treatment at Vitnaova. You must show the letter at the border. When entering Denmark the COVID test can be no more than 24 hrs old, with a negative result (all test types are approved).

Once you enter Denmark, like many European countries you are asked to isolate 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 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

Yes, 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 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.
