The compact and easy to read manual informs captains and ship crews on the border controls at all EU and Schengen borders along the Danube.

It gives an overview on the steps to be followed and the forms to be filled and includes the locations, contact details and opening hours of control points.

Besides providing valuable information the manual will serve as a basis for discussion between control authorities and is considered as first step towards harmonised control procedures.

The practical manual results from joint efforts of the two priority areas of the European Strategy for the Danube Region dealing with inland navigation and security. Contents were provided by the control authorities themselves.

We appreciate your feedback on the manual and welcome any improvements you may suggest.
