Latest Travel Alert
Information for fans travelling to the Ireland v Denmark game on Nov 19
We would like to make sure that Irish fans, some of whom may not have travelled to Aarhus, Denmark, before, get to and from the game safely and enjoy what we hope is an exciting game of football. With this in mind, we ask that you read the following important information and guidelines.
Given recent terrorist attacks in European cities, Irish citizens are advised to follow the advice of police and local authorities and to exercise increased vigilance, especially if attending large public gatherings or other crowded locations. Attacks could occur at any time and could target tourist attractions, restaurants, transport hubs or other public areas.
The Swedish government is continuing to mandate that all rail, bus and ferry operators carry out ID checks on all passengers travelling to Sweden. Any Irish citizens intending to travel to Sweden, including by train from Copenhagen via the Öresund Bridge, should ensure that they are carrying their passport or passport card in order to ensure that they will be allowed to enter Sweden.
In addition Denmark has imposed temporary border controls at the Danish/German border in Jutland and at the ferry landings in Gedser, Rødby and Rønne. These measures take the form of random checks.
The best help is often close at hand so if you have problems, start by talking to your local contacts, tour operator representative or hotel management.
You can contact the emergency services in Denmark by dialling 112.
Consider downloading the AkutDanmark mobile app, which displays emergency information in Denmark in Danish, English or German. The app automatically matches the language settings of your mobile phone. It costs DKK 6 (approximately €0.80) and can be downloaded via the App store and Google Play.
