Can my employees continue to cross the border to Denmark?

Yes, all Danish citizens and persons with legal residence in Denmark will still be able to enter Denmark. Additionally, persons who reside in another EU/EEA country but who work in Denmark will still be able to enter Denmark for their work. 

Different documentation is required depending on whether your employee is a Danish citizen, frontier worker or posted worker.

Required documentation

A Danish citizen or a person with legal residence in Denmark must be able to provide one of the following types of documentation upon request at the border:

  • Danish passport; or
  • Danish residence permit.

A frontier worker who works in Denmark but resides in another EU/EEA country must be able to provide one of the following types of documentation upon request at the border in addition to ordinary ID:

  • Special health insurance card from Denmark; or
  • a contract of employment which states that the place of employment is in Denmark; or
  • a paycheck from a Danish company. 

A posted worker who is posted by an employer located in another EU/EEA country to work in Denmark temporarily must be able to provide one of the following types of documentation upon request at the border in addition to ordinary ID:

  • A contract of employment which states that the place of employment is in Denmark; or
  • documentation for social security (A1 form) which is issued by the authorities in the country of the employer/self-employed in relation to work in another EU/EEA country; or
