FAQ about ID border checks
What do I, as a passenger, need to do?
You must buy your SJ ticket before departure and display it as usual on the train. The police border controls have been strengthened. A valid ID document is still required for entry into Sweden. Make sure that you have valid photo ID ready before the train reaches Hyllie station.
