Romania joins Schengen with its air and sea borders

April 23, 2024

On the night between Saturday and Sunday, as of 12.00 am, Romania joined the Schengen Area with its air and sea borders.In Bucharest, this moment was marked by an event that will take place at the "Henri Coanda" - Otopeni International Airport, at the Departures terminal.A similar event was scheduled, on the night between Saturday and Sunday, at 11.30 pm, at the "Avram Iancu" International Airport in Cluj-Napoca.The Ministry of Interior informs that, with regard to the traffic through the air border crossing points, starting with March 31, with the accession of Romania to the Schengen Area, people who make flights to or from Schengen member states will no longer have to pass through border control.Thus, at the airport, after passing the security check, passengers will go directly to the boarding gate without stopping at the Border Police filters to have their travel documents checked.However, police checks are possible to establish the legal status of the persons. Their purpose is to prevent cross-border crimes and illegal migration."It is important to note that all passengers will still need a valid travel document. Regarding minors, we specify that they will be able to travel in the Schengen Area with exactly the same documents that they must have at this time when traveling abroad," stated the Ministry of Interior.
