Copenhagen, Denmark

On 25AUG, the federal government upgraded its risk assessment about travel to Denmark. It issued a travel advisory warning Canadians to "exercise a high degree of caution" due to the threat of terrorism in the Scandinavian country.

The travel advisory says it is based on Danish Security and Intelligence Service information, and reads as follows:

Heightened threat of terrorism

Since the beginning of August 2023, there have been multiple incidents of public desecration of the Qur'an in Denmark. Violent extremists have since called for revenge against Denmark. The Danish Security and Intelligence Service currently assesses the threat of a terrorist attack at level 4 (significant) on a 5-step scale.

Always be aware of your surroundings when in public places. Be particularly alert during public celebrations and demonstrations.

If you are in Denmark:

  • expect enhanced security measures and an increased police presence at the border and in public places
  • monitor local media for the most recent information
  • follow the instructions of local authorities
