Possible queues when arriving in Italy
« on: May 10, 2017, 12:27:14 PM »
It probably won't cause anyone serious delays at Pescara airport, but Italy have suspended the Schengen free movement agreement until the end of May. It will almost certainly mean long queues at the northern road frontiers entering Italy, so if you are driving down try to avoid the busiest times.

This is because there is a G7 summit in Taormina, and a big finance ministers meeting in Bari during May, and the Italians want to 'check every passport' of people entering Italy by road, air or sea. (Probably also trains, but I haven't read that.) It's not 'picking on Brits' !

We have just returned from Pescara airport and the passport control queue in and out was much slower than usual. British passports were not being scrutinised any more carefully than Italian. However, a little more time to get through should be allowed.
