The good news is that if you plan to spend New Year’s Eve on Bornholm you are not obliged to present a negative test to transit to the sunshine island.

Proof of transit via Ystad is required and for instance your ferry ticket could be good enough as proof, details with the Swedish border police.

However, if you are travelling by car over the Oresundsbro, expect queues when you arrive at the Swedish end as the Swedish authorities have announced that they will be checking all arrivals.

A negative test may be a PCR test or an Antigen test (quick test) not older than 48 hours. Children below 12 years of age are exempt.

The test certificate must be in Swedish, English, Danish, Norwegian or French.

For border workers or students, the requirement is a negative test made within a week prior to arrival or a vaccine certificate.

If you live in Sweden you are exempt from the test requirement and there are also a range of exemptions for other purposes, check with the Swedish authorities for updates.
