ID controls when travelling to and from Denmark

Since 2016, Sweden and Denmark have temporarily strengthened their border controls. The police may spot check your ID during your journey.

What must I as a traveller be aware of?

You must bring with you and be able to present a valid ID document during the journey. Spot checks usually occur on Hyllie station. 

What is a “valid ID document”?

For Nordic citizens: Valid passport, national ID card or driving license issued in a Nordic country.

For citizens of other EU/EEA countries: Valid passport or national ID card.

For citizens of other countries: Valid passport and, if required, a visa or residence permit.

Do children need a valid ID document too?

Children who are travelling unaccompanied by an adult must have a valid ID document, whatever their age. Children under the age of 18 who are Nordic citizens and travelling with a legal guardian do not need their own ID documents.
