Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

Passports still required at every single airport in EU. There:s an EU/EES/Schengen queue, and there:s the other one. Passport still required for on-the-spot ID if requested by polis. Furthermore, get ready to show a passport when travelling over Öresundsbron from Denmark to Sverige at the Swedish border in Malmö, depending on what day/time it is.

Not true. You need an ID, but it doesn't have to be a passport.

Naturally. Certain countries have ID:s, others don:t. Not meant to be a catch-all, untrue statement. Passport was used in the context of discussing passports; one is not arrested if they carry with them a valid state-approved ID.
