How your journey may be different

If you are a patient outside of Denmark wishing to have treatment at Vitanova, your journey will have changed slightly due to Covid-19. We have outlined these changes in the steps below. 

Step 1

Virtual consultation

Your first step to starting treatment is to have a consultation with one of our multilingual medical team via video/phone. They will discuss any results of tests and scans previously undertaken then develop a treatment plan offering the best chance of success. You can book your virtual consultation here with one of our multilingual medical team either online or by calling us

Step 1

Step 2

Prep for treatment

During your consultation, we outlined the best treatment plan for you. When starting your treatment you will need to get regular check-ups at our clinic or at a doctor in your home country. We have a trusted pharmacy partner, who can deliver most treatment medication required to your home anywhere in Europe.

Travelling to Denmark for Treatment

We know travel feels a bit more complicated at the moment with a number of boarders being restricted, but don’t worry, it's ok to travel to Denmark for treatment. We have supported many patients through this already. In order to enter Denmark, all you need are:

1) A medical exemption letter that we will issue to you
2) A negative covid test done within 24 hours of travel from your home country

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. We're here to help you at every step so there is no need to delay starting your treatment.

Step 4

Treatment in Denmark

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 use the hotel facilities. You are able to leave isolation to come to our clinic for your treatment. After your treatment is finished , you are able to leave when you wish and return home. We will be in regular contact with you throughout your treatment to ensure you have the latest guidance at every step of the way.

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.

Can I travel to Denmark?

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).

Do I need to Isolate/Quarantine?

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

Do I need to take a test when entering Denmark?

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. 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/faq-new-mandatory-testing-and-isolation-requirements 

What if my treatment is done before I finish quarantine?

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.

Where do I get a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test?

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.

What is it like in the clinic?

We want to reassure our patients that we remain fully open and continuing to deliver safe treatments.
We remain in close contact with the National Board of Health in Denmark and continue to follow the guidelines they provide around COVID-19. 

What we ask of you:

    • Please do not shake hands
    • We ask you to wash your hand regularly or use a hand sanitiser
    • Please keep your distance from other patients and staff members 
    • Wear a mask during your time in the clinic

If you have had any symptoms: runny nose, fever, or coughing, or are tested as positive to Covid-19 you cannot be admitted to the clinic.

If you are from Denmark and you would like your partner to join please contact us beforehand. However, if you have travelled from abroad we can only supply a travel document for the person having treatment so they would not be able to attend. This will be discussed in greater detail in your consultation. 

Can my partner come?

If you are from Denmark and you would like your partner to join please contact us beforehand. However, if you have travelled from abroad we can only supply a travel document for the person having treatment so they would not be able to attend. They are only permitted to come if they are needed, this will be discussed in greater detail in your consultation. 

What happens if I need to come to Denmark multiple times?

At the clinic we will work very hard to reduce your trips to Denmark as much as possible., but if you do need to come to Denmark more than once we will update your letter for entry and help you organise the best plan of action. 

Should I get the vaccine if I want to start fertility treatment?

For both women and men, it is recommended that you accept the recommended vaccination when you get it offered, regardless of your planned pregnancy or fertility treatment. You will have to wait until you have had your 2nd vaccination before you start your fertility treatment.

Does Covid-19 pose any risks to pregnancy?

No data has shown the risk for pregnancy because of Covid-19. No data has shown danger for the fetus or increased risk for miscarriages. The long-term effect of Covid-19 on pregnancies remains unknown and the clinic cannot guarantee that a pregnant woman’s health would not be severely affected or there is no increased risk of miscarriage, premature delivery or an adverse effect on the baby if Covid-19 was contracted during pregnancy.

We're open and ready to help you!

We want to reassure our patients that we remain completely open to all our national and international patients, and you can continue to come to the clinic for treatment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
