In other news, I may be in Baarle personally in a month or so.

As for #14, Sweden and Denmark are just the opposite.

How come they only pick those two countries? If they wish to check all traffic from east shouldn't they also control the border with polen? I am guessing they dont consider any threats from the west?

You are wrong at all. Regarding G7, threat comes from everywhere, especially from leftist and muslim terrorists (most expected in so called "West")

You did not sleep or what is your problem? Did not mean to offend polen or any other eastern country for that matter. And correcting someones gramma isnt an argument...Nor is it a relevant input so drop it

The problem is you can`t understand the interim border control applies only to Bavaria. Besides I wanted to draw attention we should write the name of countris in english in this tread with capital letter, it is so difficult to understand?
But taking into account your nick I am not surprised that you do not understand.

When I asked the question in the first place I did not understand it only applied to Bavaria, no. I thought it was the hole Germany, hence my question in the first place. People should be allowed to write the name of the countries in the way they wish. And it is not only in english you write it with a capital.

What does my nick has to with anything? Did I spell my own nick wrong? Please englighten me.

Probably no need, the amount of manpower needed to perform even random checks on all German borders would be astronomical.

There will probably be checks on the Bavarian borders within Germany, too.

Really? It would very weird to see a systematic control post within the same country.
When Italy hosted G8 in Genoa (2001, that infamous G8...) and in L'Aquila (2009) Schengen was suspended for the whole Italy.

The press release of the Federal Ministry of the Interior (25th May) reports that random (!) border controls will be done at internal Schengen borders from 26th May to 15th June 2015.

The Bundespolizei (federal police) reported in February 2015 about the G7 mission. The maximum security area is close to the Austrian border which is why border checks have to be done at the Austrian border. My highlight:

Quote:
Daher werden Einsatzkräfte der Bundespolizei beispielsweise an der Meilerhütte auf 2 374 Metern Höhe ihren Dienst verrichten und dort gegebenenfalls Grenzkontrollen durchführen.

For instance, the federal police will be positioned on an altitude of 2,374 meters (Meiler lodge) and could do border controls there
A news article (26th May) reports that the random border controls are the focused on the borders to Austria and Czech Republic, also at hiking trails.

Another news article (29th May) reports that 450 illegal immigrants were caught (at the border to Austria), drugs and guns were found etcetera.

This news article reports (30th May) reports about border controls to Czech Republic and Poland. The headline is "Criminals every minute!

Of course, there are NO border controls are done at internal German state's borders! And again, there are two G7 meetings, one in Bavaria, one in Saxony (Dresden).

Portuguese border is only the road in the left, indeed. The road (lane) in the right keeps in Spain.

But it has a so important word fault: "portugesa" which should be "portuguesa", (either in Spanish, Portuguese or Galician)

Someone was worth to set an "I" and "frontera" shift from Spanish to Portuguese/Galician but didn't worth about that fault.


I would state that it is so horrible as some US border translations we have posted here.

Can someone tell me what border controls were like between Portugal and Spain after 1945?

Controls... the same as in France-Spain but to my best knowledge, you could approach to Portugal without any special permission.

In the case of France, any Spanish citizen who didn't live near the border needed a visa... just to move near the border (not to cross it).

In the case of Portugal it didn't exist... but have a look to Badajoz, for instance, one out of the 50 province capital and the distance from city centre to border

https://www.google.es/maps/place/Bad...8c7e359714a4a9

To cross the border... just a passport. It was enough. Well, maybe police will check if you were smuggling or if you were looked forward justice or so... but only passports.

Spanish citizens didn't require a visa to quit the country... just only a passport, but not all the citizens had a passport. They made the ID card (quite useful today, btw) to have identified to all citizens but not allowed to quit the country.


Nevertheless, Portugal and Spain had similar regimes so refugees would look for another destination. If someone crossed border and was catched by the other police he would be returned asap.

alserrod - thanks! I'm surprised actually - I thought Franco's Spain did require exit visas from Spanish citizens, although I know that the country was never closed off in the same way as other countries in Europe were.

Here's a curious border-related sign, and I can't find out anything about it. It's just west of the A16 France/Belgium border crossing - https://www.google.pl/maps/@51.05567...cg!2e0!6m1!1e1

Why would only non-EU trucks need a ticket for travelling on the A16? What was the ticket for?
