Hungary lifts temporary border inspections on the Hungarian-Slovenian border

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Hungary lifts border control on the the Hungarian-Slovenian border, which was implemented in October due to illegal immigration reported the Wednesday's edition of "Magyar Közlöny".

The decision comes into effect today.

Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó announced on October 17 that Hungary temporarily restored border controls on the Hungarian-Slovenian border as there was a serious risk that migrants try to enter the territory of Hungary through Slovenia.

The temporary border control was implemented within the framework of the Schengen Convention; then, Szijjártó stressed that inspections will remain in force as long as the situation warrants.

Since then, Slovenia completed a close to 100km long fence on the Slovenian – Croatian border removing the threat of a migrant invasion from the neighboring country.
