Amid the European Union Commission’s call to extend the external border seal off of the Schengen Area and the Schengen Associated countries, some of the Schengen States have extended the internal border controls until the end of the year.

After France was the first EU and Schengen country to announce it has decided to keep its border controls in place for seven months, until the end of October, a few other Member States have followed, Schengen Visa Info reports.

Despite the extended border controls, Denmark is planning to return to normal after Easter, by reopening nurseries and primary schools on 15 April.

Businesses will also be allowed to operate again on a gradual basis.
