I don't know if it's already been posted, but I couldn't follow the whole threat because there were too many posts. By the way this is a European one, again, but quite particular, since it's the border between La Linea de la Concepcion (ES) and Gibraltar (UK) in 2008









Ok, this is not the border, but it's the airport crosswalk right after that!

Thanks for the pics.

It has been posted somewhere and it is the narrowest border with customs (they are other ones, but able to be crossed with a car a custom controls this is the narrowest as I think)

It's beginning of August, the holiday month in Europe and the month when a lot of Romanians working abroad are comming back to Romania to visit their families.

Yesterday morning, at Nădlac (RO) - Nagylak (HU) the waiting time I don't think it was more than 15-20 minutes:





But yesterday evening there were 5 km of cars waiting at the border as much as 3 hours:











The border check was carried on 3 lanes (not enough if you ask me):

How are the controls between Hungary and Romania? It is not possible to pass without borders checks? Romania I know is not in Schengen but is in the EU. What documents are necessary to travel between Hungary and Romania?

You can cross with you ID card or your passport

Slovenia-Croatia is one of the worst European borders these days. Yesterday there was a 30-km queue between Maribor and Zagreb, and another 30 km between Trieste and Rijeka (from Italy to Croatia).

If I could ever understand why they had to split up good ol' Yugoslavia. They will end up in the EU anyway, they just could have skipped civil war. But maybe they got a border crossing fetish down there.

However, Yugoslavia is a nice country, and after my own nation really ****ed up during the last century, I've learned to ask no question how far human insanity will go.

I suppose you were very young in the time of the Yugoslavian war. Turkish workers from Germany all drive to Turkey through Romania, and the border crossing between H and RO was not so easy as nowadays. Waiting time was 3-4 days(!) then. It was terrible.

I don't remember those times... I was just a little kid during the Yugoslavian war.

But to wait 3-4 days at a border crossing

I was by bus to Germany through H and CZK in 92, I was small then, but I remember waiting for some hours at the border, many luggages being opened and checked, but not days . In CZK at the border there was a huge truck line, but we passed that. That's all I can remember.

The waiting time was several days only when a great amount of Turkish workers drove from Germany to Turkey, through Romaina. It was 3-4 weekends in a year. In the rest of the year it was much better (I mean, several hours, possibly half a day, but no more).

EU itself (without "Schengen") is about free movement of goods and services. If you cross Schengen<>non-Schengen border still within the EU (like spain-Gibraltar, Romania-Hungary), then you could smuggle a horse in your trunk and the border police is not even allowed to ask what you're bringing (as long as it's legal, you know the usual "no drugs, weapons; no alcohol or cigarettes over the limit").

To make it clear, movement of goods is free, there are no customs check. It's the border police who are checking your papers.

A bit off the topic: an opposite situation is on the EU-Switzerland border: there you're leaving the EU, but remaining in Schengen, so your personal papers cannot be checked on the boder (2 km after the border is OK ), but they might check if you're not smuggling meat or money.
