Notice April 2022: Russian flagged or registered yachts are not permitted to enter any ports in Denmark. See news item for details.

ARRIVAL FORMALITIES

With the introduction of the Europe-wide entry and exit system (EES)  (now delayed until 2024), biometric data will need to be recorded on entry and exit for third country travelers. While this negates the need to have passports stamped, it will require a visit to an official office at a port of entry, therefore flexible clearance at marinas may no longer be possible once it is implemented. It is not yet known how rigidly EES will be enforced for pleasure boat users.

General Process:

As a member of the European Union, EU regulations apply.

Any vessel arriving from a non-Schengen country must fly the Q flag and directly proceed to a port of entry for immigration and customs clearance.

There are usually no customs or border controls if a vessel enters from a Schengen country. No registration at the port authorities is required, but occasionally an official (Police) may check that Passports are in order and say that they should be stamped.

It is advisable that crew members arriving by plane request their passports are stamped at the airport.

Notes:

  • It should be noted that duty-free allowances are very small and amounts over this are declarable. Customs do check yachts, so if in doubt it is advisable to report to Customs. A comprehensive list of all safety equipment on board may be requested by Customs.
  • If you are borrowing the vessel you are skippering from a friend, you should carry an authorisation and a copy of the valid boat registration from the country of origin.

    Data Entry says:

    Nexo is a good port of call, on the west side of Bornholm: although mainly fishing, there are spaces for visiting yachts either in box berths or with a line to a stern buoy.

    Visit the harbourmaster to pay (+45 56 49 22 50): walk north (right) along the frontage; take the first left; the office is 100m on the left. In the season, watch for the ferry arriving with around 100 cyclists + bikes getting off & the same number getting on: a sight to behold.

    Data Entry says:

    Don’t expect to be received by a harbourmaster in a Danish yacht harbor, just find a free berth – normally marked with a green sign (red means that the regular owner will return the same day) look for messages like “free until date so and so”. In many yacht harbor, you then have to report to a self-service machine to pay your harbor fee and get a key for the toilet and bath.

    Just follow the instruction on the machine, they are normally at least written in Danish, German and English. You can stay for a long period in a Danish yacht harbor without ever seeing the harbourmaster. In fishing harbors, a harbourmaster can be present – but no guarantee.
