Based on the recommendation of the Epidemics Commission, the Government has received the assent of the Parliamentary Epidemics Committee to introduce further measures to tackle the increase in COVID-19 infections in Denmark. Within the resort of the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, a corona passport will be required in all educational institutions.

This means that pupils, students and visitors, etc. must present a valid corona passport in order to  attend educational institutions in person. Children under 15 and persons who can prove that they are exempt from COVID-19 testing will be exempt from the corona passport requirement. Also exempted are individuals who are judged by an educational institution not to be covered by the health authorities' recommendations concerning the self-isolation of infected persons, even though the individual has a positive PCR test result less than 14 days old.Employees at the  higher education institutions must also be able to present a valid corona passport. 

The rules governing the corona passport requirement will be set forth in a new executive order that will take effect on Monday, November 29, 2021.
