Import Regulations in Sweden
If you arrive in Sweden in your own boat you must land at a harbor with Customs facilities.

As Sweden is now a member of the EU, yachts and boats arriving from a Schengen do not have to inform customs on arrival in Sweden if there is nothing to declare. Nevertheless, yachts and boats from other countries have to notify the customs, before stopping anywhere else. If visiting Gota Alv or going through the Gota Canal, you must notify the customs office before entering. Yachts may be examined by customs in the customs area for inspection.

Foreign nationals may only enter and leave Sweden at passport control points, or via a frontier crossing point.

Yachts must carry their original registration document, insurance policy and ship’s radio license. One member of the crew must have a radio operator’s certificate of competence. For EU boats, proof of VAT status is also required.
