It is mainly Swedish citizens who get caught in checks, according to Mette Helmut at the Danish Customs Board.

– In Denmark, there is a clear political will that people should not travel around with large amounts of cash – at the same time we catch more and more people who do it, she tells DN.

Denmark has stricter legislation than Sweden when it comes to violations of the cash limits, according to Jonas Karlsson, an expert at the Swedish Customs Administration's legal department.
