Sweden is extending the temporary closure of the border with Denmark so that it is valid for the rest of the month.
This was announced by the Swedish Ministry of Justice on Thursday.
Thus, the initiative has been extended by about ten days. This also applies to restrictions for travelers from the UK.
“It is also important that children are not hit unreasonably hard because the child and one of its parents live or for some other reason are in Denmark or the United Kingdom,” the ministry writes.
Therefore, Sweden is now introducing an exception in the entry ban, so that children who have a father or mother in Sweden or on Bornholm can travel into the country. The same applies to a possible companion.
“Even though there is a pandemic, it is very important that children can be seen with their parents,” said Interior Minister Mikael Damberg.
Damberg announced on 21 December that the border with Denmark would close from the same evening. It forced many travelers to Sweden or Bornholm to change travel plans or Christmas plans.
However, the border is open to Swedish citizens who will not be prevented from returning home.
Others who live or work in Sweden, as well as people transporting goods, can also be allowed to enter. The same applies to ambulances and ambulances from Denmark.
The purpose of the temporary closure of the border is to prevent the new variant of coronavirus, which was discovered in England in September, from spreading further.
