Can I travel to Denmark from Germany by train. I am an Albanian citizen.
Does the border have control for COVID 19 test results or something else.

I will go to my sister home to open the house because shes not in Denmark this time. Because I read on internet and Denmark is closed for everyone but train still works. I ask Is there border control or test control at the Germany-Denmark border? Do you have any information for these?

  • Without knowing the current, exact rules, the answer will depend on why you are travelling to Denmark and where you live in Germany. Entry for the purpose of tourism is not allowed for residents of all states expect Schleswig-Holstein. The answer might even depend on where exactly you are going in Denmark. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Nov 26 '20 at 10:58

    @Crazydre, lying on the record is a really bad suggestion. These kinds of lies tend to come back and bite. – o.m. Nov 26 '20 at 18:31

    @Crazydre, It is against TSE politics to tell people to break the law. – Willeke Nov 26 '20 at 20:26

    The trains are running for those who are allowed to enter Denmark. One of the exceptions allowed is to visit a near relative (sister), but since your sister is not there this would not apply to you. – Mark Johnson Nov 27 '20 at 7:44

As per the comment, you will transit Germany. Germany will require you to fill an online entry record, alternatively a paper one. What you write there should be the truth, for practical and ethical reasons.

  • The German Federal Police has confirmed to me that the entry form is not required for transit travellers not staying overnight at an address (asked this as I'm soon taking the train CH -> DE -> DK -> SE) – Crazydre Nov 27 '20 at 11:26
  • @Crazydre Be aware that transport operators are often not aware of the details and may require you to submit an entry form even if you are not required or even able to do so. I was planning to take the Stena Line ferry from Gothernburg to Kiel and they require when checking in for the ferry that all passengers show that they have submitted the form. Coming from a non-risk area, I am neither required nor able to fill out the form and would probably be denied transport. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Nov 27 '20 at 13:02
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo Thanks for the input. I'll message my TIMATIC contact and have him ensure the database is updated to say the form isn't required for passengers in transit (incl. air -> overland) – Crazydre Nov 27 '20 at 13:22
  • @Crazydre I was not 100% sure, but I have now checked at least the Bavarian regulation (note that the requirement to fill out the entry form is mandated in state law, not in federal law, and may vary from state to state). There is in Bavaria no exception from the requirement to fill out the entry form if you are just transiting. If transiting Bavaria, you are exempt from the quarantine requirements, but not from submitting the entry form. Which btw is quite difficult, since you have to provide information about where you are staying the next 10 days (in Germany) to submit the form. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Nov 27 '20 at 14:07
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo You say it's not regulated federally. Yet the Bundespolizei told me this without me having specified my route. And as you said it makes sense due to the lack of an address. Strange! I've now asked DB Sicherheit to make a note of this in my DB booking to avoid me being wrongfully denied boarding – Crazydre Nov 27 '20 at 14:23
