Stricter Passport Controls at Airports

Beginning on Friday, 7 April 2017, stricter passport controls will apply at the external borders of the Schengen area. Passports of all travellers will be systematically compared with the authorities’ search databases. Previously, EU citizens only underwent a minimum check.

airberlin asks all passengers crossing the borders of the Schengen area to go to passport control as early as possible and to be prepared for wait times. The border controls are under the responsibility of the German Federal Police.
