PROHIBITED AND RESTRICTED GOODS
The following may not be imported: Narcotics, medicine, firearms, and ammunition (unless licensed by the Danish Ministry of Justice), live plants (unless license granted by the Danish Governmental Plant Protection Service based on a certificate from authorities at the origin that plants are free from disease), and live, dead or pre-manufactured parts of animals that are mentioned in the Washington Convention (unless license granted by Danish Nature Conservancy Board).
Duty is not applied in the following instances:
Household Goods (They can be imported irrespectively of quantity and value by all intending residents provided that:)
- They have been owned and used for a minimum of six months (from EU countries, only 3 months) and still are intended for the owner’s use.
- Danes returning home must have had residence abroad min. twelve months (EU countries min. six months).
Exceptions from duty-free household goods are:
Any quantities of wine, spirits, or tobacco included in a household goods shipment must be declared and will attract duties and VAT. The general regulation is that customs will accept a maximum of 10 liters of spirits, 20 liters of fortified wine not exceeding 22% volume, and 90 liters of wine, of which max. 60 liters may be sparkling wine and 110 liters of beer as part of a household goods shipment only. Larger quantities are considered commercial imports and can only be imported by licensed importers unless authorization has been obtained from the local customs office.
As the number of duties and taxes are based on the value of the wine, spirit, or tobacco, it is impossible to indicate a general level of duties. Please note that Danish Customs does not distinguish between opened and unopened bottles. All bottles will attract full taxes and duties.
Cars, motorbikes, airplanes, caravans, pleasure crafts, and motor trailers can be imported duty-free if in the owner’s possession and registered abroad for a minimum of 6 months, but the registration tax must be paid in any case – and is very high!
- Documentation that the moving person has been a resident abroad for min. 12 months (in EEC- countries, only 6 months.)
- Certificate from authorities abroad, employer, or the like.
- Registration certificate (for vehicles)
- Green insurance card – third party (for vehicles)
Personal belongings of diplomats employed with foreign missions in Denmark can be entered free of duty and customs examination if the local mission issues a franchise.

Can be imported provided to following documents are available, a Health certificate, not more than 1-month-old, and a Rabies certificate between 1 and 12 months old. The owner must have resided abroad for min.12 months, and the effects must have been owned for min. 6 months. The secondary residence must be owned or rented for at least 24 months, and the effects not be rented nor sold for a period of 24 months from the import date. If the above regulation is not met, import duties will apply (25% of declared insurance value).
Visitors not taking residence in Denmark cannot import household goods free of duty
