Yes, the northern one is Kukuryki, although the Customs terminal is called Koroszczyn - the border crossing is effectively over two sites, similar to the old system at Swiecko. The difference between Swiecko and Kukuryki is that traffic at Swiecko wasn't forced into the Swiecko terminal, whereas traffic crossing at Kukuryki must head into the Koroszczyn terminal. It's only open to trucks.

Terespol on the other hand is open only for buses, cars and diplomatic traffic.

There are some proposals to open up a pedestrian crossing between Brest and Terespol, but after the Belarus authorities unilaterally closed all pedestrian crossings between Belarus and LT/PL, it doesn't seem as if it will happen anytime soon.

Checking in Wikipedia, however, revealed a visa is required for the UK and Ireland.

Is there a European citizenship that permits visa-free (tourism) travel to all European countries?

Serbian citizens need visa for UK, Ireland and Moldova.

There is no such thing in Europe, since there are two cases that don't go together: if you don't need visas for Russia or Belarus you need visa for UK; if you are EU/Schengen member you need Russian/Belarussian visa.

There's no such citizenship in the world. The harshest visa policy in Europe has Belarus.

I know that the UK and Ireland have their own customs policy but doesn't the right of free movement within the EU still exist?
Unless the 2 countries have an opt-out.......
And a question....
Does an EU citizen need a visa for these 2 countries or are they visa free?

Of course EU\EEA\CH citizens can visit UK and IRL with ID only, as those two countries are EU members. It's the same for other non-Schengen EU members: Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and (Greek part of) Cyprus.
Any EU citizen can visit, live, stay anytime (s)he wishes in any other EU country, regardeless if it's a Schengen member of not. Being a Schengen member means only that you don't have to show your ID at the border while entering from another Schengen country.
If you aren't an EU\EEA\CH citizen and you need a visa for the Schengen area, you will need an additional visa for UK, Croatia, Romania, etc... and a multiple-entry Schengen visa if you want to return to Schengen area after visiting a non-Schengen country (for example: France to UK and back to France, Slovenia to Croatia and back to Slovenia,...).

According to Wikipedia, if one possesses multiple entry Schengen visa and wants to visit Croatia, then he/she does not need separate Croatian visa.

The single-entry Schengen visa has caught some people out before, especially on the Spain-Gibraltar and Andorra-Gibraltar border.

What happens if you have a one-entry Schengen visa and you go to Andorra? There are no airports in there to fly out.

Regarding UK and Ireland: as a Romanian citizen (as well as for every other EU citizen) I don't need a visa. It's just a simple and quick passport / ID card check at the border. I just returned from there yesterday.

Options:
- attempt to leave Andorra just as if everything was in order - and hope it's not your papers F or E guards want to check (there is no strict, one-by-one personal ID check on those borders),
- walk into the F or E embassy in Andorra la Vella and apply for another Schengen entry visa

Only the UK and Ireland have independent visa policies. Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Cyprus are bound by visa policy of the Schengen Area.

It's actually a stupid situation, because the EU really should just mandate that a single entry Schengen visa also covers visiting Andorra and Gibraltar in light of the lack of systematic border police controls. The EU even wants Gibraltar and Spain to drop exit identity controls on the border!

Speaking of the Gibraltar/Spain border - this is worth a read - http://gibraltarpanorama.gi/15209/11...ntier-controls

This is just sheer madness. Gibraltar is in the EU, there's absolutely no need for this!

As for Andorra, it's worth pointing out that there are likely some people living there who require Schengen visas.

Every system leaks. Why to bother with these insignificant cases?

Some quite illegally taken pictures of a crossing point between Israel and Palestine area, last week. I am not sure where this is exactly, I think between Jerusalem and Bethlehem (pics are not mine).

Crossing Slovenia to Croatia and back last 2 days was a joke, just a 1-2 second glance at ID cards, I almost didn't have to stop the car...

Are you sure that the Croatians aren't there with the Hungarians? As the Hungarian infrastructure is at Schengen standards while the Croatian infrastructure wasn't, as far as I know, most controls moved to the Hungarian side of the border.

As for HR/SLO, have the Slovenians finally started trusting Croatia to look after the Schengen border? Last summer, they were still scanning passports and taking their time...
