Covid-19: Travel from Denmark to Greenland

For non-Danish citizens and travelers from other countries

It is possible for travelers from Denmark to go to Greenland. For travelers from other countries, it is possible to travel to Greenland when Denmark (and Iceland) open for entry. Please contact us directly, and then we will check the current situation for you. We are in contact with everyone who has purchased package holidays with us this autumn.

Negative COVID-19 test required

You must present a negative COVID-19 test before entering Greenland. The test must comply with the applicable instructions, which you can find here
You must complete a SUMUT form before entry
It is not people from all countries who can travel into Greenland. Greenland follows the same guidelines as Denmark. A list of the countries can be seen on the Danish Police’s website

Re-test and quarantine in Greenland

The Greenland Government requires that you be quarantined on arrival in Greenland. You can be re-tested on the fifth day in Greenland. If this test is negative, you can leave your quarantine (it may take a few days before you receive a response). If you are not re-tested, you have to remain in quarantine for 14 days. This applies to these 12 cities: Nuuk, Ilulissat, Sisimiut, Maniitsoq, Qaqortoq, Narsaq, Aasiaat, Qasigiannguit, Qeqertersuaq, Paamiut, Kangerlussuaq, and Narsarsuaq.

If your final destination in Greenland is NOT one of the 12 towns or settlements mentioned above

To reduce the risk of infection reaching vulnerable places with a long way to a larger hospital, Greenland has been divided into two groups of destinations. If you are going to a destination that is not on the list above, you have to be re-tested. You must stay in one of the above towns and settlements until you can present a negative re-test taken on the fifth day of your stay, or stay for 14 days in one of these 12 Greenlandic towns or settlements.

NOTE: Surgical mask on all flights

When you fly to, in, and from Greenland, you must wear a surgical mask, which covers both nose and mouth. Children under 6 years are exempt. The mask must be worn from when you arrive at your departure airport until you leave the airport at your final destination. The mask can be taken off when you need to eat. It is recommended that you put on a new, unused mask after eating.
