In the text it says it's pretty common. You can see it on several photos http://varlamov.me/img/afroexp_put9/21.jpg http://varlamov.me/img/afroexp_put10/21.jpg http://varlamov.me/img/afroexp_put16/IMG_3435.JPG Apparently when you finish the paperwork someone unties that rope and you can go on your way.

Interesting.

I've always thought that if a person is entitled to enter France at all, s/he is then entitled to enter any region of France.

Or, if a person already is legally in France, s/he is free to move to any region therein. Of course, when speaking about Guyane, this involves flying, but I've thought these flights are concidered domestic.

New border crossing Ásotthalom-Bački Vinogradi between Hungary and Serbia. It seems to be integrated.

Here is what the author has to say

Bribery and Corruption

When I was preparing to go to Africa, everyone kept scaring me with terrible corruption, saying that I should not go without a bag of money. We even laid in the budget of the expedition the 10,000 euros for contingencies. However the reality pleasantly surprised us.

For 30 days we traveled through 17 countries and the most serious extortion was 100 euros on the border with Senegal. And that's it. No frauds, no bribes on the borders, nothing. Well, we gave little things to crooks to speed up the process of paperwork (in previous posts I red they gave Moroccan tea most often), but that shouldn't be counted, we could have proceeded without giving anything. There is no terrible extortion. In general, the situation with the traffic corruption is much better than in Russia. Again, for 10 000 km, we have not received a single fine.

Another border crossing Makaza - Nymphea which has been ready for a year now but Greece purposefully hasn't completed the road on their side.

Border control entry - sounds like you have to drive inside the building.

I like this Romanian border crossing, especially with EU and NATO/OTAN signs and inscriptions.

It can be a good alternative to Rozke-Horgos, where there are big queues in summer. And it is closer to the motorway than Tompa-Kelebija.

This is a waste of money because next year, there will be no border check between Bulgaria and Greece, due to the activation of the Schengen Area Agreement...

You see what happened in other Schengen countries... The border checks are uttely abandoned. Sometimes you don't even notice you cross into another country

So, why bother build all those stations?

They just put Containers there which can be easily removed. No real buildings. So that is no waste of money, just necessary for the time until 2014.

Yes because this border crossing will not be open for Turkish citizens which form the major part of border queues. So it will be easier for locals to pass the border at those times.

Good to know, but why they don't also open the old border crossing Rozke-Horgos, so it would help even more.

AFAIK not all border crossings with RO are always open, or open to everybody. By car on land you only have Vatin, Srpska Crnja, Kaluderevo, Iron Gates 1 and 2.

True, many crossings don't work at night and some are only for Serbian and Romanian citizens. Also there is a pictogram next to the crossing name so you can see that some are railway or ferry crossings.

No one knows when Bulgaria will be in Schengen, so for now we do need them. Also the Greek side is only missing 2 km to complete the road.

I've never understood this - there was a proposal to open it for EU/Serbian citizens on foot, yet the proposal went nowhere. The buildings are still there - there's absolutely no reason not to allow foot traffic here. It's worth pointing out that while not specifically allowed, foot traffic is common.

It is in fact the rail station crossing point. No cars here.
