GDR Tourists Get One Day Visa for Denmark

The East Berlin news agency ADN reports that the first GDR tourists have made it to Denmark. They received one-day visas on the ferry 'Kong Frederik IX'. The justice department in Copenhagen had informed the public that visa for short visits will be issued by all Dansish border officials. Before that, such visa could only be issued in the GDR. The tourists used the ferry from Warnemünde to Gedser.

ADN also reported that the Austrian government in Vienna does not require GDR citizens to have a visa if they want to visit the soccer match (GDR against Austria) taling place in Vienna next Wednesday.
