Fully vaccinated American tourists will once again be welcome in Denmark starting this weekend, VisitDenmark told Travel + Leisure on Friday.

The country will reopen its borders on Saturday to American and British travelers who received a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency, which includes the Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson shots. Tourists must arrive at least 14 days after they receive their final shot.

Going forward, fully vaccinated Americans will be exempt from pre-arrival testing or isolation protocols, according to VisitDenmark. Unvaccinated children who travel with their parents or guardians, however, will still have to get tested.

"Denmark is very excited to welcome back American travelers," Katinka Friis, a spokeswoman for VisitDenmark, told T+L.
