Moreover, there are no longer any allowance restrictions on these tax-free items.

Note: The Faroe Islands and Greenland are not part of the Europe Union.

  1. Permissible Limit of 800 cigarettes or 400 cigarillos or 200 cigars or 1kg of tobacco.
  2. 10L of spirits over 22%, 20L of alcoholic beverages less than 22%, 90L of wine and 110L of beer is duly allowed.

*Tobacco and spirit allowances apply to travelers who age 18 and above. Beer and wine allowances are applicable to travelers aged 16 and over*.

Apart from the items allowed under Denmark Duty-Free Allowance, there are some goods having very strict regulations and guidelines against their import in Denmark.

You cannot take any domestic animals, wildlife and any other product or equipment related to them into the country. In addition to this, you cannot import food material (including meat, poultry, and dairy). Apart from the obvious weapons and firearms, plants or parts of plants (including fruit, nuts, and seeds) are not permittable in Denmark. There’s no entry for any potential sources of disease and pestilence (such as vaccines or viruses). At last but not least, check your medicines because of restriction on non-prescribed drugs.

The laws and regulation against drug trafficking are very strict leading to heavy penalties.
