Border controls

Danish border controls

Danish police are currently carrying out border controls at Kastrup close to the start of the tunnel. These controls are not permanent but happen from time to time when the Danish police see fit.

Swedish border controls

Swedish police carry out border controls on the Øresund Bridge when crossing to Sweden. If you are unsure what the rules are for ID-checks, you can read more on the Swedish police’s website.

Worth noting

To avoid ques and unnecessary waiting time for you and your fellow passengers, you can do the following:

  • Have your ID ready at the toll station

  • The Swedish police state that accompanying children can be allowed to visit Sweden, for example by parental ID, questions, and background checks.

  • Danish police state that all travellers must be able to show ID
