52 views

During a press conference, Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, recalled that as of Sunday 30 March at 0:00, the enlargement of the Schengen area will be completed and border controls will be lifted at airports. On 21 December 2007, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Hungary, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia became part of the Schengen area. On Sunday the enlargement process will be completed by lifting air border controls between these countries and with the 15 States that were already part of the Schengen system. Jacques Barrot told journalists that this completion is symbolic because the free movement of persons represents one of the pillars of the treaty and it is a concrete improvement because, for people travelling in the Schengen area, things will be simplified.
