The department has established a new policy, where business travels outside of the Nordic countries made by train, boat or bus are subsidised.
Through a prefekt resolution in April this year, a new travel policy was established for all business travels made by staff at the department.
There is stated that when traveling within Scandnavia (excluding Iceland – i.e. Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland), you should choose the train (or boat) instead of flying - unless special circumstances apply.
And the department (prefekt level) will cover all trips by rail/boat/bus outside the Nordic countries in 2019.
