You may travel to Bornholm via Sweden – but check your own national restrictions

You could be put into quarantine upon your home-coming

Several countries have opened their borders to Denmark and vice versa, but the Corona-situation can change very quickly. Therefore you may be asked to stay at home in quarantine after your home-coming. We advise you to check your home country’s current directions and guidelines before and under your travel to Bornholm.

Keep your distance – also on Bornholm
The Danish guidelines and advice also apply to Bornholm. Please keep your distance to others, wash your hands and cough or sneeze into your sleeve – not your hands. Please follow the local authorities guidelines and restrictions. Read more → in this brochure.

In Denmark, there is no general advice for using protective masks in public areas. However, from June 15, passengers who are travelling by plane have to bear a mask from the point of entry of the departure airport until leaving the arrival airport.

Ferries, planes and trains have introduced security precautions to prevent the spreading of the Corona Virus.
