Current travel opportunities to Greenland:
Greenland is a self-governing territory within the Kingdom of Denmark, therefore Denmark's entry requirements apply to Greenland as well.
To find out if you are allowed to enter you first would need to identify if your country classifies as open country by the Danish Police. An up-to-date list if your country is classified as open can be found here. This list is updated on a weekly basis by the Danish government.
In case your country is classified as open you are allowed to enter Greenland, but would need to follow these further restrictions imposed by the Greenlandic government currently valid until 31 January 2021:
- present a negative test result no older than 5 days when boarding the plane as well as presenting a filled out Sumut form upon boarding
- go into 14 days quarantine if you are not re-tested in Greenland
- go into quarantine until receipt of a negative re-test result, which can be first conducted on day 5 after arrival.
Covid-19 situation in Greenland:
In Greenland there are very few Covid-19 cases. In total, 17 persons were affected by Covid-19 in Greenland, and 16 of them have recovered (as of November 13, 2020). The reopening for entry to Greenland started with all due caution in order to keep Covid-19 infections as low as possible. Greenland as the world's largest island with about 85% of its territory covered by ice only has a tiny population of around 56.000 inhabitants who need to be protected. They are living in small towns and settlements far away from each other. There usually is a hospital in the towns and a nursing clinic in the settlements, and the national hospital in the capital Nuuk.
Traveling in Greenland during the Covid-19 pandemic:
Travellers that visit Greenland are characterised by their love of nature and the great outdoors. They want to experience the vastness of the country most commonly on an individual basis. 90 percent of Greenland Tours’ adventurers are travelling the country individually, meaning as singles, couples, family or small groups of friends, the remaining 10 percent travel in small organised hiking groups. Responsible and considerate travel has always been important to us and our adventurers. We are therefore providing detailed information on all measures taken by the Greenlandic government to continue to protect both locals and travellers.
