Foodstuffs, bringing into Sweden for personal use

Information on the rules that apply for travellers bringing foodstuffs into Sweden.

Travelling from another EU country

In principle, travellers may bring foodstuffs into Sweden from other EU countries without restriction.

Travelling from countries outside the EU

Different rules apply for foodstuffs entering Sweden from countries outside the EU. A health certificate is generally required for meat, milk, and similar products. These foodstuffs must also undergo a veterinary inspection at the border. Please note that foodstuffs are considered to be part of the duty- and tax-free traveller´s allowance of
4 300 SEK for commercial flights or ferries, and 3 000 SEK for other types of travel.

Certain exceptions apply for powdered infant formula, baby food and special foods required for medical reasons. There are also some exceptions for foodstuff from Faeroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland.

Importation from Norway, Andorra, Liechtenstein, San Marino and Switzerland is subject to the same regulations as other EU countries, including the 4 300 SEK or 3 000 SEK value limit.
