Travel ID

Travel documents that you must bring for border controls upon entering Denmark.

Nationals of Nordic countries

Due to the Nordic Passport Union, you are not required to bring your passports when entering Denmark if you are a national of a Nordic country. However, when checked at the border, you must prove that you are most likely a national of a Nordic country. Only passports and national ID cards provide information about nationality.

We therefore recommend nationals of the Nordic countries to bring one of the following documents:

 
  • Passport
  • Driving licence
  • National photo ID card (in the Nordic countries, only the national ID cards of Swedish and Finnish nationals are approved as travel ID for entry into Denmark).
     

Nationals of the Nordic countries under 18 years of age are exempt from the requirement to present a personal ID document if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian who is also a national of a Nordic country and who can identify himself or herself as set out above.


For nationals of the Nordic countries under 18 years of age who are not accompanied by a parent/guardian, the same rules apply as to adults, which means that such children have to prove that they are most likely nationals of a Nordic country. We therefore recommend children do bring their own passports.
