When border shopping on the ferry or at our BorderShop in Puttgarden or Rostock, you should always make sure you comply with customs regulations.

The rules state that duty-free products bought in an EU country can be brought into Denmark as long as the products are intended for personal use. This applies to all products, including tobacco, spirits, beer and wine.

‘Personal use’ means that only you, members of your household or private guests who will be using/consuming the product(s).

However, there are restrictions on the purchase of duty-free tobacco products on board, and you can only purchase these by showing your boarding card.

The amount and type of goods that you buy should not raise suspicion that you have bought them for commercial purposes. As a consumer, you must therefore be able to justify that the goods are intended for personal use. In cases of doubt, the Danish Customs and Tax Administration will make the final decision.
