Medicine in luggage

We always recommend that vital drugs carried are in the hand luggage.

In the case of medicines in the form of pills, there is in general no problem in terms of our security.

If it's liquid medicine, we recommend that you contact your doctor and get a travel letter in Danish and English describing the medication.

If you bring medicines containing narcotics or drugs that affect the central nervous system, and are travelling to one of the Schengen countries you must also be in possession of a pill passport. The passport documents that the medicine is for their own use as part of a medical treatment.

The pill passport is issued in the pharmacy, which can also provide guidance on the types of medications that require pill passport. You can also order a pill passport over the internet on or the pharmacy's website:

If you want a pill passport, you must have a prescription from your doctor - even if it comes to drugs that usually do not require a prescription.

The validity of pill passport is no more than 30 days. Should you be away longer than 30 days, contact the nearest embassy of the country you travel to, to find out how to proceed.

If you have questions about medication for the journey, visit the pharmacy in Terminal 2 before security. Here you can also get your prescription medicine. Find the Airport Pharmacy.
