the new Schengen border code will enter into force 7th of April at external EU borders. This means that not only are non-EU citizens subject to more strict control at air/sea/land borders, but it will also be imposed on EU-citizens as well. In practice, this will give longer queues at land borders from now on. Be prepared for hassles when summer season begins !

You'd better be happy. I live in the Balkans and sometimes I wait for 3+ hours. And its a real hassle.

If you enter France from a non-Schengen country enjoy your stay at the border

You should be fine. France is not an external EU country. Anyway, the extra control is now that you will be scanned in many databases and that can take some time.

Yea its pretty daunting. My only tip is to use secondary borders. I can console you that EU Roaming will be abolished so you can surf on the internet while waiting.

Sounds like a poor attempt from the EU to show a middle finger to Erdogan.

I bet he already has the team digging the tunnels. I am sure the Americans would have that fence along Mexico already if it worked.

Is this going to change anything within Schengen? I was planning on taking a day trip to Lugano while I'm in Milan so should I have my passport with me on the train just in case?

You always need your passport or id when going abroad. Authorities need to be able to verify if your stay is legal.

Swiss Border Guard nowadays is on the lookout for illegals coming in from Italy, since many of those landed in Italy want to proceed to Germany.
So even being an internal Schengen border, entry w/o a valid ID may be denied.

Only external EU borders are affected. I know CH has a special status in this but its still regarded as an inner-country. Yea just take it with you despite being in the passport free zone.

All in all, Eastern European borders will be subject to this extra control in addition to Balkan except Slovenia... i am not sure about the microstates. Have to look at the details if it is Schengen and/or EU country..

Btw, i still dont get why Croatia is still a candidate Schengen country. With all the funds they got to improve borders, they are still not even considered to get in. A brand new airport terminal was opened some days ago in Zagreb that meets all the criteria. Lets hope the land borders will get an overhaul soon. Just think Slovenia made it in only 3 years from EU to EU Schengen.

Schengen doesn't mean it's a passport free zone. It means you can cross inner Schengen borders without showing your passport or ID, except with extraordinary situations. As a foreigner you still have to be able to identify yourself and thus to be able to prove that your stay is legal. Your means of identification of your nationality could be a passport, ID or a residence permit.
Switzerland doesn't have any special status regarding Schengen. It is a Schengen member state.
