All residents are entitled to free Covid-19 tests.
Getting a Covid-19 test is easier now than it ever has been but it can be difficult sometimes to sift through the information we’re bombarded with nowadays. Testing capacity has improved a great deal in the past few months, and now every resident of Copenhagen can arrange a test. This still applies, even if you’re not experiencing symptoms, or have not had contact with somebody who has tested positive. There are 3 different types of testing centres in Copenhagen now and there are different requirements for attendance. It’s important to remember that if you are ill and require the attention of a doctor, you should call your usual doctor’s surgery or 1813 if it’s outside of normal opening hours.

Quick Test Sites
Rapid, antigen tests are available at many different locations, so we’ve listed their websites for your reference. Some require appointments, which can be booked here. Results take about 15 minutes but these tests are less accurate. If you have symptoms or have been around somebody who has tested positive, you must book an appointment at one of the fixed sites instead.
