It is not allowed to bring plants, seeds, fruit and other plant products from travel in countries outside the EU without these being accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate. The rules also apply to small quantities of plants and plant products. The only exceptions to these rules are fruits of pineapple, coconut, banana, durian and date, which can be freely imported.
If you bring plants for planting, including certain types of seeds for sowing, from countries outside the EU, these must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate and notified for import. The product will then be import-checked by the Danish Agency for Agriculture. You should be aware that there are costs associated with import control.
If you bring fruit, vegetables, cut flowers or other live plant parts not intended for planting from outside the EU, a phytosanitary certificate will still be required, but the products will not have to be notified for import.
The rules are due to a new EU regulation, called the Plant Health Regulation, which aims to protect our natural and cultural landscape as well as plant production against serious diseases and pests that can accompany plant products.
