EU plans to allow Schengen border controls for three years for 'security'

border controls
The European Union released plans today to allow countries in the passport-free Schengen area to reintroduce border controls for security reasons for up to three years.


"Under today's proposals, member states will also be able to exceptionally prolong controls if the same threat persists," the European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, said in a statement.

Countries in the 26-country Schengen travel area can currently reintroduce frontier checks for six months for security reasons, and two years if that is combined with a threat to borders such as Europe's migration crisis.
