Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Sverige, fordi Sverige ikke opfylder kriterierne for lave smittetal i den nye model for rejsevejledningerne inden for EU og Schengenområdet. Regionerne Blekinge, Kronoberg og Västerbotten er undtaget, fordi regionerne opfylder kriterierne. Du kan læse mere hos Statens Serum Institut. Hvis du rejser til Blekinge, Kronoberg eller Västerbotten, bør du være ekstra forsigtig for at minimere risikoen for at blive smittet med coronavirus/COVID-19. Du udviser ekstra forsigtighed ved bl.a. at følge vores rejseråd i en tid med COVID-19. Hvis du tager ophold i din egen ødegård eller lignende, og hvis du følger rejserådene, kan du rejse til områder i Sverige, hvortil vi ellers fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser. Du kan også rejse i transit igennem Sverige, hvis du følger rejserådene. Hvis du rejser til Sverige, bør du også orientere dig om lokale restriktioner forud for rejsen. Den danske ambassade i Stockholm har de seneste oplysninger om lokale restriktioner i Sverige. Du bør altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. Du bør løbende holde dig orienteret om udviklingen i Sverige via den danske ambassade i Stockholm, de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedierne. Du bør også downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der indføres omfattende restriktioner i Sverige, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Du kan læse mere om coronavirus/COVID-19 hos Sundhedsstyrelsen og Statens Serum Institut. Du bør altid følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd til forebyggelse af smittespredning.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
