The borders with Denmark and the United Kingdom are closed – North Halland

Requires quarantine and tests

On their way home, Swedes must crown themselves upon arrival in Sweden and then isolate themselves. After five days in Sweden, they will culminate in the exam again. Only those who get a negative result in the second coronation test will be allowed to move freely in Swedish society.

Milder rules for Denmark

An entry ban from Denmark means that foreigners wishing to enter Sweden from Denmark directly at the border will be refused. The Swedes are on their way home and people who live in Denmark and who work in Sweden are exempt from the ban.

The entry ban from Denmark is not linked to any requirements for quarantine or coronavirus tests for those allowed to cross the border.

Prohibitions apply until further notice

The flight ban that has been in place for all air travelers from the UK is in effect for 48 hours, starting at midnight, and is therefore in effect until midnight on Wednesday.

You want to test everyone who has traveled recently

The reason for the government issuing an entry ban is fear of the new – highly contagious – variant of the Coronavirus, which is currently spreading like wildfire in the UK. A viral variant, if it begins to spread in Sweden, is feared to cause unexpected problems for the currently overburdened Swedish healthcare system.
