Traveling out of Denmark

If you are considering travelling abroad here are the guidelines:

Insurance when traveling abroad

If you are going to be travelling, you should make sure that you have the proper insurance cover. You are not covered by AU insurance if the travel is not work related. Therefore, you will need private insurance cover and it is essential to know how you are covered during Covid-19.

If you have the blue EU health insurance card, you will still have the same level of coverage during Covid-19. Read more about the blue EU health insurance card under Covid-19 (in Danish).

You should also check with your immediate supervisor if you are planning to travel abroad.
