Note that the tourist season attracts pickpockets and bag-snatchers in crowded areas. Keep your personal belongings, including passports and money, secure. You should also keep an eye on luggage, including in the overhead baggage compartment, when travelling on trains to and from the airport. There has been an increase in incidents where belongings have gone missing.
Passports, visas and travel insurance
British citizens do not need visas to enter Sweden or Denmark. Your passport should be in good condition and remain valid for the duration of your stay in Sweden. Ensure that you have comprehensive travel insurance. You should also bring your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The EHIC card will give you access to Swedish/Danish health care if you have an accident or suddenly become ill. You will receive the necessary state-provided medical healthcare for a reduced cost.
