Important information

Because of COVID-19 restrictions foreign travelers will only be able to enter Denmark with a recognizable purpose. 

If you have a recognizable purpose, you can still travel to Denmark. In this case, it is a good idea to have your passport and other papers ready on arrival.

Test requirements for travelers from outside Scandinavia

Present a negative COVID test in Sweden

All travelers from non-Scandinavian countries must present a negative COVID-19 test at the boarder between Denmark and Sweden. This applies to all foreigners above the age of 18 entering Sweden. The negative test must be taken no more than 48 hours before you cross the border between Denmark and Sweden. 

The test requirement also include travelers who have been vaccinated. 

Excepted from this requirement are travelers under the age of 18 as well as travelers from the Scandinavian countries: Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Finland.  




In order to ensure that you have a good crossing over the Baltic Sea, BORNHOLMSLINJEN has introduced a number of measures to protect both passengers and crews from the current challenge posed by COVID-19.


Below you can see further information about how the coronavirus situation may affect your crossings. 


Wear face covering when you move around on the ferry

Remember your face covering

The authorities have made mask wearing mandatory on all public transport. This also applies to BORNHOLMSLINJENs ferries.

The face covering must be worn when you move around on the ferry, or on your way between the car deck and the passenger deck. 

When you are seated on board you can remove the face covering.

The face covering requirement does not apply to children under the age of 12, to individuals with breathing problems or impaired consciousness, or those with physical or mental disabilities who are unable to remove the face covering themselves.

Travel safely with Bornholmslinjen

Initiatives to make you feel safe

We would be grateful if you would follow our general advice on preventing infection and show consideration for your fellow passengers on the crossing.

We still make every effort to keep things very clean on board our ferries, and we disinfect surfaces. We have also set up signs to remind everyone of our good advice. We help you help each other.

Important information

Stay in your vehicle during the crossing

What to do if you are in a special risk group. 

If you have a particular need to protect yourself from COVID-19, we have made an exception and are allowing passengers to stay in their vehicles during the crossing. You can stay in your vehicle if you are ill or suffering from COVID-19 or if you are in a special risk group due to your age or state of health.

For permission to stay in your vehicle on the car deck, you must request this when you book your ticket – or call our customer service on +4570900100. If you have already booked your ticket, you can add this option to your reservation on the website under ‘Change ticket’.

The option to stay in your vehicle only applies to the Rønne-Ystad route and not to Rønne-Køge, Rønne-Sassnitz or departures on Povl Anker. 

If you have chosen to stay in the car during the crossing, you must be checked in at least 30 minutes before departure. 

Space on the car deck is limited, and you should note that the car deck is not a pleasant to be in cold weather or rough seas.

Please note that you are not permitted to leave your vehicle at any time during the crossing without contacting a member of the crew. This applies to all passengers in the vehicle.

If you have not booked ‘Stay in vehicle’ before you board, you must stay on the passenger deck during the crossing.

In the event of bad weather, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation to stay in your car on the car deck.

Note: Even if you are staying in your car, you must bring a mask in case it should be necessary to leave your car.
