After arrival in Greenland

People who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must be re-tested on the 5th day after arrival in Greenland. People must quarantine from arrival and until re-test. If the result of the re-test is negative, the person no longer needs to quarantine and can therefore go to work etc.

If you are not able to be tested, you must remain in quarantine at home for 14 days from the day of your arrival.

If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine at home when you arrive in Greenland and you do not need to take a re-test on the 5th day after arrival. You must be able to document your vaccination status on request from the authorities.

The day that is your 5th day for testing depends on the day you arrived. See the table below:

Day of arrival 5th day/test day
Monday–> Friday
Tuesday–> Saturday
Thursday–> Monday
Friday–> Tuesday
Saturday–> Wednesday
