OK and South America... two airports in the Iguazu falls (Brazil and Argentina), just 15 km away

Melilla, for instance

https://www.google.es/maps/place/Mel...0463fd8ca1c650


(by the way, Melillan citizens have a 50% reduction flying to mainland but sometimes they prefer to cross the border and go 40 km away to Nador for a RYR flight, quite cheaper)

and, by the way... one of the most well-known airports world-wide




It is not only just besides the beach in one side but besides the border France-Netherlands in the other side.

The French airport in the same island is obviously near the border too... but not so much as this one

OT, but I asked a few days ago in Roadside Rest and no one answered: Are Melilla and Ceuta on Spanish or Moroccan time?

ON topic. I can't believe they let planes come in that close to people on a beach.

Sorry, I didn't read it. All Spain has CET except Canary Islands (CET-1). Therefore, time difference within Ceuta/Melilla and Morocco.

According to the Italian press, Croatia will aplly to Schengen membership on 1st July 2015 and will actually join in early 2016.
http://ilpiccolo.gelocal.it/trieste/...016-1.10730616
Seriously? Or 2016 is the date when Croatia will apply to join Schengen?

Why not ?
I think that is unfair for Romania and Bulgaria,because they are longer in EU then Croatia and they are still not in Schengen.

As far as I know there is no set date for anybody to join Schengen. So probably Croatian government only hopes to join in 2016.

Croatia hopes so, but I'm almost certain we won't see Croatian entry until the issue of Bulgaria and Romania is resolved. I suspect that the new EU policy of demanding progress in problematic areas in exchange for Schengen membership will stay here - which is no bad thing. Certainly, until Croatia sorts out some international border crossings, Schengen should definitely not apply.

Are there still border (both land or sea) disputes between HR and SLO or were they fully solved before HR joined EU?
I've read that there are still border disputes between HR and BiH, along the Sava river (HR-Repubilc of Sprska) and on the coast around Neum (HR-Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina).

Is Croatia as corrupt as Romania and Bulgaria?

However, corruption is not the only criterion to accept a country in Schengen. Adequate border infrastructure and high security on the outer Schegen border are also of a primary importace.
From what I understood reading in this thread, Croatia has still a porous border with Bosnia, with many areas practically uncontrolled. Romania and Bulgaria seem having already upgraded border controls on the outer border (with Ukraine, Moldova and Turkey) but still EU is unsure to admit them in Schengen because there are many Romanians and Bulgarians going to Western Europe (and some of them cause troubles).

For Roumania the biggest problem was on coruption, expecially high-level coruption. This seems to be resolved on the last 2-3 years, but still is uncertained if UE will recognive the progres.

Of course I, as roumanian, have some doubts about the continuing improvment on justice after Schengen entry, so I'm not that eager to be inside Schengen zone. Not while this objective is puting pressure on our politicians.


Also there are rumours about a big coruption file which is waiting to be brought out in public. It'a about contracts made with EADS for securing roumaniang border in 2003-2009, contracts that came along with big bribes for our high level politicians. It should be fun to watch.
