However, if it's a permanent residence permit, they can use the crossing on the same basis as an EU citizen.


I see. Do you have a source ? Anyway, what if its not direct family member (eg. brother-in-law) but the person have an EU permanent residence permit ? Can he follow me at the points of lets say Dala and Horgos 2 (HU) ? And how would they know if we're in family anyway?

It seems from your message that it is the residence permit that is the bottleneck.

[I][SLO] Trieste/Skofije

Here are some pictures taken in Aug, last year from the above crossing. Interesting thing about this place is, that if one does not want to pay horribly over priced () Slovenian vignette, must go through, seen on one of the images, petrol station.

Leaving toll station in Italy.


Price for some 200 kilometres on Italian motorway. Well, I am not dare enough to call it robbery, yet






Mentioned petrol station can be seen in the background.



Welcome to lovely Slovenia.

More like 250km. It's around 0.08€ per KM, some our motorways are more expensive than that.

You are right, it was stretch from Verona to Trieste, about 260 km. Not so bad, then

You don't actually need to drive through a petrol station, you drive very close to it though.

The layout seems to be very provisional. It would make more sense to build an exit off the expressway just before the boreder and go past the filling station on the right vie the existing road there.

As you might already know, UK doesn't make any usual border control when leaving the country, but only when entering.

I am now at London Heathrow airport. For the first time since after almost 30 flights out of UK, I have now noticed that:
- after security control there were few officers from the Border police asking for passports and some info randomly
- after the gate check for a flight heading to Istanbul there were more Border police officers

I also flew about 3 times out of UK, and there was never any control. Today was the first time I have seen them checking people leaving the UK.

On the other side, at Munich airport there are police officers patrolling with large machine guns in the entire airport (both in the secure and non secure areas).

I assume it depends on the country of destination.

If I have understood correctly, France has border control on the UK territory for those using the tunnel (and vice versa)? But I don't know what that means in practice.

Last time I exited UK it was on ferry to Norway (that service has since been suspended). Passports were checked.

By whom?

I always flew in/out of UK. When getting into the UK, I always have to show my passport to a border police officer. However, when leaving, there was no control (just the airline checking the passenger identity). This is the first time I see border police checking anyone while leaving the UK.

Driving on that road seems to be possible, but not allowed (at least when Google was there). It's easier to drive in the other direction (to Italy).

Do you mean in both the French and Swiss sectors or just in the French one? Since the Swiss sector is in France but it's considered to be Swiss land, are the patrols there French or Swiss?

Only French sector. I could see their flag tag on the chest. Some railway stations were also guarded in the Alsace region.
