Hundreds of Ukrainian refugees are being rejected at the border with Denmark because they lack passports or because they are on their way to another Nordic country.
Around 10-20 refugees are stopped every day, Danmarks Radio writes.
At the moment, Ukrainian refugees are not allowed to enter the country if they do not have a biometric passport or other internationally approved identification – unless they want to seek asylum in Denmark.
If they do not have the paperwork in order, they cannot use Denmark as a transit country to get to Sweden or Norway.
On Thursday, however, an exemption provision for Ukrainian refugees will enter into force, and thus Ukrainians with non-biometric passports will be able to apply for a Danish residence permit at the border, the newspaper Jyllands-Posten writes.
