ferry from sweden to denmark
The boarders are still closed from Sweden to Denmark. The strange thing is that the boarder are open the other way. Thousand of danes are crossing the boarder to Sweden every day. Swedes are also allowed to cross the boarder if they are working or got a relative in Denmark.

Read more about the restrictions on and Norway got another law or rule to accept. They are allowed to cross the boarder to Sweden but have to stay two weeks in quarantine after arriving back to Norway.
