About testing and test results

Do I need to book an appointment?

As a user of Covidresults.dk, you do not need to book an appointment for testing (both PCR tests and rapid antigen tests).

Just show up at a mobile or fixed test centre, stand in line and present your unique ‘Foreigner ID’ code found under your profile on Covidresults.dk.

Testing of children

If your child needs documentation of their test result, create a user account for your child on Covidresults.dk with a different email address from your account. This means your child will have a unique ‘Foreigner ID’ code to present at the test.

Test results

You will normally be able to see your test result up to 48 hours after your test.

Find test centres

Find a test centre near you. This map shows all testing locations in Denmark.


The description for the test centre will state if it offers testing for foreign workers and tourists. Look for ‘Are tests available for foreigners?’

You can also find information about rapid antigen test. Look for "Are rapid antigen tests available?"

When you arrive for the test

You must show the barcode from Covidresults.dk to the staff before your test. You can find the barcode under your user profile. You can bring a printout of the barcode, or you can log in to Covidresults.dk from your mobile phone at the test centre.

Download or print certificate

It is possible to download or print the certificates below:

  1. Certificate with test result

  2. Certificate without test result

  3. Immunity/Recovery Certificate

What if I do not need to see test results, download or print certificates?

If you do not need to see test results, download or print certificates, you do not need to create a user account on Covidresults.dk. You can show up at a test centre without an appointment, join the line and be tested. If the test result is positive, the infected person will be telephoned directly by the Danish Patient Safety Authority’s Infection Tracing Unit. Tourists will not be contacted if their test result is negative.

Type of tests

Two types of free tests are used in the public test system – PCR tests and rapid antigen tests.

However, PCR tests should always be used if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who is infected.
