  • All passengers to Svalbard require a passport for travel.

  • Important  information regarding boarder control at Bergen Airport:
    In connection with 2017 UCI Road World Championships in Bergen, Norway, Norwegian authorities have introduced temporary border control for passengers arriving at BGO Airport from any Schengen or Non-Schengen destination during the period 26AUG17-24SEP17. Passengers travelling to Bergen (BGO) Airport from any destination outside Norway are strongly recommended to bring their passports or National ID.

  • Latvian and Estonian authorities require passengers traveling between Riga and Tallinn to present a passport or national ID card upon arrival/departure. Separately, passengers traveling from France must present valid photo ID.

  • Travel outside the Schengen Area. If you are traveling to a destination outside the Schengen Area, you will always be asked to present a valid passport at check-in and before boarding your flight. Children must have their own passport stating their nationality even when they are traveling with an adult. When traveling to/from Non-Schengen countries and Denmark, you will also be asked to provide passport number, date of birth etc. when checking in online or at the airport.

    Effective 7 October 2017, the police are to check the passports of all travelers crossing the Schengen border at Copenhagen Airport.

    The new rules mean that all travelers, irrespective of their nationality, who cross the Schengen border, are to have their passport scanned at the passport control at Copenhagen Airport.

    Copenhagen Airport anticipates waiting times of up to one hour at the passport control, depending on whether you are arriving or departing from the airport. We therefore advise our passengers to arrive at the airport in good time, as passport control is performed after check-in and security.
