UPDATE: What It Means As Bulgaria And Romania Become Schengen Countries

Last year, Romania and Bulgaria agreed to join Europe’s free-travel area by air and sea, despite Austria’s opposition to full membership, citing Romania and Bulgaria’s need to prevent illegal immigration.

Bulgarians stated that since they are no longer subjected to pointless checks at airports, this is undoubtedly a really wonderful success for Bulgaria and makes life easier for us.
“Also, we feel like Europeans, that is a very important thing and boarding flights are hitch free now” they stated
By the end of this year, Bulgaria should be a complete member of the Schengen area, which means that border crossings for vehicles and cargo travelling by train and road would no longer be necessary, according to the interior minister of the departing government.

Become Schengen Countries

Additionally, the prime minister of Romania stated that the nation anticipates concluding land border negotiations this year.

I’m happy that internal air and sea border inspections have been lifted. Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, said in a statement that “this is a great success for both countries.
By working together, we are creating a more cohesive and powerful Europe for all of our people,” she remarked.
To stop the migratory influx, Bulgaria and Romania have joined Austria, Greece, and Slovakia in a regional police endeavour.
