The Austrian authorities have announced that the country has decided to put an end to the internal border controls with Slovakia. According to the Ministry of Interior of Austria, since Monday, the authorities will only be carrying out the so-called 'mobile border controls', replacing the previous controls, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported.

"From February 6, 2023, the static border controls at the border crossings between Austria and Slovakia will be replaced by border area controls.

These are carried out by mobile teams in coordination with the Slovakian authorities," the statement of the ministry reads. The ministry explains that the authorities decided to drop internal border controls in place with Slovakia after taking into account the current situation as well as the decision of the Czech Republic to no longer apply such measures.

At the same time, it has been stressed that the authorities will use drones and other equipment to continue monitoring every movement at the border and prevent people smuggling activities.
