Border Police At Work

Swedish Airport Breaks Schengen Laws

Sweden could have broken Schengen rules after Gothenburg City Airport in the west of the country was left without border police for over 20 days this summer.

Bad holiday planning meant that there were no guards avaliable to work. Gothenburg City Airport is the smaller of the city’s 2 airports, and around three quarters of a million passengers pass through it’s doors each year. By leaving the border unguarded, not only did people have free access into Sweden, but because Sweden is also part of the EU’s Schengen passport union, they could also therefore get into the rest of the EU without their passports being checked.
