Danish football fans, on a high after its team’s Euro 2020 victory over Russia on Monday, may be able to take advantage of a loophole in COVID-19 travel restrictions to attend Saturday’s last-16 match against Wales in Amsterdam, Danish authorities say.
Denmark qualified for the knockout stages in dramatic fashion on Monday after a resounding 4-1 win over Russia, supported by an ecstatic crowd in Copenhagen.
But the Dutch authorities regard Denmark as a “high risk country”, meaning travellers will need to isolate up to 10 days upon entering the Netherlands.
Dedicated supporters, however, could take advantage of a get-out clause in the Dutch rules.
“If you’re only in the Netherlands for 12 hours, then you’re exempt from isolation,” Erik Rasmussen, an official with Denmark’s foreign ministry, told a news briefing on Tuesday.
