For those arriving train passengers not getting off the train at the Hyllie stop, then the passport control personnel may board the train at the Hyllie stop and perform these passport/ID checks for all passengers before allowing the train to continue onward. At times, it’s this on-board passport/ID check that is most variable in how long it takes to conclude.

It’s a wasteful dog and pony show when it’s performed since it involves so many personnel and vehicles to hassle people who can get into Sweden pretty easily anyway by just coming later or taking another way and asylum/refugee claimants are mostly admitted anyway.
Thanks. Nothing related to Covid vax or testing?
