Hungary resumes ‘systematic border control’

Systematic border control of travellers entering or leaving Hungary via the Schengen borders is to be resumed after the government withdrew its decision to temporarily suspend it for the summer season.

The decision appeared in the official gazette Magyar Kozlony on Wednesday. The Hungarian government decided to suspend the EU decree on “systematic border control” in May because sections of the Hungarian border had become extremely congested and waiting times had been expected to multiply during the tourist season.

The EU regulation allows member states to suspend systematic control if risk analysis proves the suspension will pose no security risk.
