Chapter Summary

The basis for the abolition of internal border controls between the Benelux countries was laid down in the Benelux Agreement on the shift of border controls on persons to the external borders , dated 11 April 1960. The diplomatic and consular posts of the Benelux countries used the common Benelux lists of persons not to be granted a visa without prior authorisation from the national authorities of the other Benelux partner declaring this person inadmissible or unwanted. The Schengen Information System (SIS) has been called the ?heart? of these compensatory measures, designed to play a key role in minimising the deficits of the abolition of internal border controls. The feasibility study differentiated between two categories of data: objects and persons.
