Visas will also be required for participants coming from most Middle East and some European Countries, the People's Republic of China, etc. For further information, participants are recommended to consult their carrier, local travel agencies, or the nearest Danish Diplomatic Mission.

Detailed information about the Danish visa rules, including which foreign nationals need visas, can be obtained from the website of the Danish Immigration Service.
No vaccination is necessary, unless a visitor is coming from an area infected with cholera.
Denmark lies in the North Temperate Zone, so the climate is mild in general and similar to that of the middle belt of the United States and northern parts of Europe.
For more information about the Danish climate take a look at the website of the
Danish Meteorological Institute.
