Lax control on the Serbian-Hungarian border during Christmas and New Year’s holidays

The Serbian and Hungarian border police will exercise a minimum border control from 15th December to 15th January in order to expedite the crossing between the two countries.

“We agreed that during the holiday period, when more drivers are expected to cross the state border because of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, we will apply minimum border control and therefore speed up and facilitate their crossing,” said Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic after meeting with his Hungarian counterpart Sandor Pinter in Novi Sad.

Stefanovic said that he and his Hungarian colleague had also discussed measures that could be taken in the next period to speed up the transport of people and goods across border crossings, as well as strategic solutions that would permanently expedite traffic across the border. According to him, this means strengthening capacities at border crossings and implementing new technologies.

The Interior Ministers of the two neighbouring countries also talked about the cooperation between the two police forces in the fight against illegal migration. Stefanovic announced that a joint exercise of the Serbian Special Counter-Terrorism Unit and the Hungarian Counter-Terrorism Centre will take place in the upcoming period.
