AUSTRALIAN CITIZENS VISITING DENMARK
TRAVEL INFO AND ETIAS REQUIREMENTS
An ETIAS authorization will be required for every Australian citizen for short-stay period in Denmark starting from 2020.
The Danish government, like all the countries joining the Schengen area, eliminated all border passport control. All the visitors entering Denmark from Germany, Sweden or other (Schengen Countries) are exempted from showing their passport to Danish authorities; in this case, a national identity card is the only document needed. Traveling with a passport is still mandatory in case of direct landing in one of Denmark's overseas territory (Greenland and Far Oer). All the travel documents must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay. All the Passports (or equivalent travel documents) issued more than ten years before the date of travel, may not be accepted.
A Schengen visa is mandatory for all nationals of Australia who stay in the country for a period greater than 90 days.
For short stay visits (less than 90 days within a period of 180 days), the visitors are exempted from obtaining a valid Schengen visa.
An ETIAS authorization will become a mandatory requirement for every Australian citizen starting from 2020.
ETIAS will have a validity of five years, and it can be used for an unlimited number of entries.
Danish custom regulates and blocks the importing of several dangerous items such as weapons (the traveler must hold a valid European Firearm Pass), legal and illegal drugs.
Goods can be imported into Danish territory following the mandatory limits regulated by the government:
If arriving from a non-EU country:
- Tobacco: Cigarettes (800)
- Alcohol: Spirits (10L), wine (90L), beer (110L).
If arriving from an EU Member State:
- Tobacco: Cigarettes (200), spirits (1L), wine (4L), beer (16L).
Money Amounts of over €10,000 (or equivalent in foreign currencies) in cash or travelers' cheques must be declared at the point of entry or exit of the EU. Visitors entering Denmark with a one-way ticket and not having sufficient funds to purchase a return ticket might be refused to enter.
