Temporary reintroduction of control on German internal borders

In the period from 26 May to 15 June 2015, border control will be conducted at certain German land, air and sea borders within the Schengen area. Travellers should therefore be prepared for border checks.

The introduction of this measure has been announced in view of the threat scenarios arising from the international G7 summit on 7 and 8 June 2015 in Elmau.

The scale and intensity of the border checks will be limited to the level necessary for security at any given time.
