Denmark has opened its borders with Germany and Nordic countries, but only to couples, which have been separated by the pandemic, and provided they can prove their relationship with correspondence.

From Monday, May 25, permanent residents of Finland, Iceland, Germany, Norway and Sweden all qualify, provided their partner is a resident of Denmark. At present, the authorities say people must give the name, address and contact details of their partner in Denmark, as well as phone records, photos and text histories to prove the relationship.

Danish Justice Minister Nick Haekkerup, however, has announced these regulations will be relaxed in the coming days, so all that is needed is a letter signed by both parties.
