Denmark and Sweden resumed accepting documents for tourist visas in Russia
As of March 29, 2022, Denmark has lifted entry restrictions for all travelers, regardless of their country of origin and vaccination status.
The fact that these rules apply to the Russian citizens was announced by the Embassy of Denmark in Moscow.
“At the moment, there are no any restrictions on entry into Denmark related to the coronavirus. PCR tests are not required either when entering Denmark or after entry. There are also no longer requirements for self-isolation after entry,” the Danish diplomatic mission said in a statement.
From April 1, 2022, Russians can also make tourist trips to Sweden - without quarantine, vaccination certificates and tests upon entry, the Swedish Embassy in Moscow reports. The ban on entry to Sweden has been lifted. So, VFS Global visa centers in Russia have resumed accepting documents for visas to Sweden in Moscow and 18 cities.
It is remarkable, that Iceland and Norway are also open for Russian tourists: certificates and tests are not needed to enter these northern countries. But, Norway does not yet issue short-term visas to Russians for travel with tourist purposes. Norwegian consulates intend to resume issuing tourist visas in May this year. However, tourists can go to Norway with an opened Schengen multivisa.
The only Nordic country, which remains closed to mass tourism from Russia, is Finland. The neighboring country has extended border restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic until May 8 (previously they were valid until April 10).
