Approximately 3,900 police officers carry out border controls during the mini-holiday of Saint Mary. The Romanian Border Police sent several recommendations for Romanians who, these days, travel outside the country’s borders.
“At the level of all the territorial structures of the PFR, the control arteries were supplemented, depending on the configuration of each point and the dynamics of traffic values, the personnel planned for the control of documents were supplemented, as well as the control equipment used, being used including mobile stations, in order to ensure border control in optimal parameters. Thus, daily, approximately 3,900 border policemen carry out, during this period, surveillance and control activities at the state border. Also to carry out the border formalities promptly, mobile teams from the central structure will move to the main border crossing points to provide support to colleagues in the field,” the Border Police reports.
The first aid points installed in PTF Nădlac II and PTF Giurgiu by the local authorities, at the request of the Border Police, remain operational during the weekends. Volunteers and paramedics are prepared to provide specialized help in the two points, in case of need.
At the internal borders, the specific formalities are carried out jointly with the Hungarian and Bulgarian border authorities, meaning that, within the framework of the bilateral protocols, the authorities of the neighboring states were contacted in order to establish common measures to streamline traffic, so that border control to be carried out promptly and at the same time respecting the work methodology.
At the same time, the necessary measures were ordered for increased surveillance of the state border, at the crossing points and in the area of competence.
Given that, according to estimates, the most transited crossing points will be those on the border with Hungary and Bulgaria, and the highest traffic values are recorded in the Borş and Nădlac II points, respectively in Giurgiu and Vama Veche, the Police of The border recommends travelers to use all border points open to international traffic on the western and southern borders.

In order to contribute to shortening the control time and implicitly to smoothing the traffic, we have the Border Police sending a series of useful recommendations for participants in cross-border traffic:
– checking the validity of the travel document with which the border crossing is intended; possession of the necessary documents for minors’ travel, with the recommendation that parents, before departure, consult the travel conditions abroad for minors who are Romanian citizens, information available on the website of the Romanian Border Police, so as to avoid unpleasant situations in which they do not they are allowed to leave the country;
– the drivers of the means of transport must ensure that they have the necessary documents for the vehicle: a valid driver’s license corresponding to the category to which the driven vehicle belongs, the registration certificate and proof of the periodic technical inspection;
for the goods owned (other than those for personal use), to keep the documents of provenance and to respect the provisions of the Romanian customs legislation;
– the documentation, in advance, at the diplomatic representations in Romania of the countries to which one travels, regarding the particular conditions of entry and stay;
– bearing in mind the considerable increase in traffic during the summer period, including at international airports, we recommend that passengers arrive at the airport within the time frame indicated by the flight companies and the airport administration;
-and last but not least, we recommend consulting the Traffic On-line application, on the website www.politiadefrontiera.ro, which presents an estimate of the waiting time at road border crossing points for certain time intervals.
Throughout this period, the Border Police will act in an integrated system alongside the other institutions with attributions in the field, especially to streamline the traffic of people and means of transport, but also to manage the cases that arise.
