CHAPTER I

Crossing of external borders and conditions for entry

Article 4

Crossing of external borders

1.  External borders may be crossed only at border crossing points and during the fixed opening hours. The opening hours shall be clearly indicated at border crossing points which are not open 24 hours a day.

Member States shall notify the list of their border crossing points to the Commission in accordance with Article 34.

▼M5

2.  De mhaolú ar mhír 1, féadfar eisceachtaí a cheadú ón oibleagáid teorainneacha seachtracha a thrasnú ag pointí trasnaithe teorann amháin agus ag na huaireanta oscailte seasta amháin:

(a) i gcás daoine aonair nó grúpaí daoine, nuair atá gá speisialta le teorainneacha seachtracha a thrasnú lasmuigh de phointí trasnaithe teorann ó am go ham nó lasmuigh de na huaireanta oscailte seasta, chomh fada agus go bhfuil na ceadanna atá de cheangal orthu de réir dlí náisiúnta ina seilbh acu, agus nach bhfuil coimhlint ann le leasanna bheartas poiblí agus shlándáil inmheánach na mBallstát. Féadfaidh na Ballstáit socruithe sonracha a dhéanamh i gcomhaontuithe déthaobhacha. Maidir le heisceachtaí ginearálta dá bhforáiltear leis an dlí náisiúnta agus le comhaontuithe déthaobhacha, tábharfar fógra ina leith don Choimisiún de bhun Airteagal 34;

(b) le haghaidh daoine aonair nó grúpaí daoine i gcás staid éigeandála gan choinne;

▼B

3.  Without prejudice to the exceptions provided for in paragraph 2 or to their international protection obligations, Member States shall introduce penalties, in accordance with their national law, for the unauthorised crossing of external borders at places other than border crossing points or at times other than the fixed opening hours. These penalties shall be effective, proportionate and dissuasive.

Article 5

Entry conditions for third-country nationals

▼M5

1.  I gcás tréimhsí beartaithe fanachta ar chríoch na mBallstát ar tréimhsí iad nach faide ná 90 lá in aon tréimhse 180 lá, eadhon fad ar ina leith a fhéachtar ar an tréimhse 180 lá a thagann roimh gach lá fanachta, is iad seo a leanas na coinníollacha dul isteach le haghaidh náisiúnach tríú tíortha:

(a) doiciméad taistil bailí a bheith ina seilbh acu lena gceadófar don sealbhóir an teorainn a thrasnú agus na critéir seo a leanas á sásamh aige:

(i) beidh sé bailí fós trí mhí ar a laghad tar éis an dáta beartaithe imeachta ó chríoch na mBallstát. Féadfar an oibleagáid sin a tharscaoileadh i gcás éigeandála a bhfuil bonn cirt leis;

(ii) is doiciméad é a eisíodh sna deich mbliana roimhe sin;

▼M4

(b) tá víosa bailí ina seilbh acu, má cheanglaítear amhlaidh de bhun Rialachán (CE) Uimh. 539/2001 ón gComhairle an 15 Márta 2001 lena liostaítear na tríú tíortha a gcaithfidh a náisiúnaithe víosaí a bheith acu agus iad ag dul thar theorainneacha agus na tríú tíortha a bhfuil a náisiúnaithe díolmhaithe ón gceanglas sin ( 18 ), ach amháin i gcás ina bhfuil cead cónaithe bailí nó víosa fadfhanachta bailí acu;

▼B

(c) they justify the purpose and conditions of the intended stay, and they have sufficient means of subsistence, both for the duration of the intended stay and for the return to their country of origin or transit to a third country into which they are certain to be admitted, or are in a position to acquire such means lawfully;

(d) they are not persons for whom an alert has been issued in the SIS for the purposes of refusing entry;

(e) they are not considered to be a threat to public policy, internal security, public health or the international relations of any of the Member States, in particular where no alert has been issued in Member States' national data bases for the purposes of refusing entry on the same grounds.

▼M5

1a.  Chun críocha mír 1 a chur chun feidhme, measfar gurb é an lá a rachfar isteach an chéad lá den fhanacht ar chríoch na mBallstát agus measfar gurb é an lá a fhágtar an lá deireanach den fhanacht ar chríoch na mBallstát. Ní áireofar tréimhsí fanachta atá údaraithe faoi chead cónaithe nó faoi víosa fadfhanachta le linn tréimhse fanachta ar chríoch na mBallstát a ríomh.

▼B

2.  A non-exhaustive list of supporting documents which the border guard may request from the third-country national in order to verify the fulfilment of the conditions set out in paragraph 1, point c, is included in Annex I.

3.  Means of subsistence shall be assessed in accordance with the duration and the purpose of the stay and by reference to average prices in the Member State(s) concerned for board and lodging in budget accommodation, multiplied by the number of days stayed.

Reference amounts set by the Member States shall be notified to the Commission in accordance with Article 34.

The assessment of sufficient means of subsistence may be based on the cash, travellers' cheques and credit cards in the third-country national's possession. Declarations of sponsorship, where such declarations are provided for by national law and letters of guarantee from hosts, as defined by national law, where the third-country national is staying with a host, may also constitute evidence of sufficient means of subsistence.

4.  By way of derogation from paragraph 1:

▼M5

(a) maidir le náisiúnaigh tríú tíortha nach gcomhlíonann na coinníollacha ar fad a leagtar síos i mír 1 ach a mbeidh cead cónaithe nó víosa fadfhanachta ina seilbh acu, údarófar dóibh dul isteach i gcríoch na mBallstát eile chun críocha idirthurais ionas go bhféadfaidh siad críoch an Bhallstáit inar eisíodh an cead cónaithe nó an víosa fadfhanachta a bhaint amach, mura rud é go mbeidh a n-ainmneacha ar liosta náisiúnta foláireamh an Bhallstáit arb iad a theorainneacha seachtracha atá uathu a thrasnú agus go mbeidh treoracha ag gabháil leis an bhfoláireamh á rá nach mór dul isteach nó idirthuras a dhiúltú;

(b) maidir le náisiúnaigh tríú tíortha a chomhlíonfaidh na coinníollacha a leagtar síos i mír 1, seachas na coinníollacha a leagtar síos i bpointe (b), agus a chuirfidh iad féin in iúl ag an teorainn, féadfar údarú dóibh dul isteach i gcríoch na mBallstát, má eisítear víosa ag an teorainn i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 35 agus Airteagal 36 de Rialachán (CE) Uimh. 810/2009 ó Pharlaimint na hEorpa agus ón gComhairle an 13 Iúil 2009 lena mbunaítear Cód Comhphobail maidir le Víosaí (Cód Víosaí) ( 19 ).

Cuirfidh na Ballstáit staidreamh le chéile maidir leis na víosaí a eisítear ag an teorainn i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 46 de Rialachán (CE) Uimh. 810/2009 agus le hIarscríbhinn XII a ghabhann leis.

If it is not possible to affix a visa in the document, it shall, exceptionally, be affixed on a separate sheet inserted in the document. In such a case, the uniform format for forms for affixing the visa, laid down by Council Regulation (EC) No 333/2002 of 18 February 2002 on a uniform format for forms for affixing the visa issued by Member States to persons holding travel documents not recognised by the Member State drawing up the form ( 20 ), shall be used;

(c) third-country nationals who do not fulfil one or more of the conditions laid down in paragraph 1 may be authorised by a Member State to enter its territory on humanitarian grounds, on grounds of national interest or because of international obligations. Where the third-country national concerned is the subject of an alert as referred to in paragraph 1(d), the Member State authorising him or her to enter its territory shall inform the other Member States accordingly.



CHAPTER II

Control of external borders and refusal of entry

Article 6

Conduct of border checks

▼M5

1.  Le linn dóibh a gcúraimí a chomhlíonadh, déanfaidh gardaí teorann dínit an duine a urramú go hiomlán, go háirithe i gcásanna a bhaineann le daoine soghonta.

▼B

Any measures taken in the performance of their duties shall be proportionate to the objectives pursued by such measures.

2.  While carrying out border checks, border guards shall not discriminate against persons on grounds of sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation.

Article 7

Border checks on persons

1.  Cross-border movement at external borders shall be subject to checks by border guards. Checks shall be carried out in accordance with this chapter.

The checks may also cover the means of transport and objects in the possession of the persons crossing the border. The law of the Member State concerned shall apply to any searches which are carried out.

2.  All persons shall undergo a minimum check in order to establish their identities on the basis of the production or presentation of their travel documents. Such a minimum check shall consist of a rapid and straightforward verification, where appropriate by using technical devices and by consulting, in the relevant databases, information exclusively on stolen, misappropriated, lost and invalidated documents, of the validity of the document authorising the legitimate holder to cross the border and of the presence of signs of falsification or counterfeiting.

▼M5

Is í an tseiceáil íosta dá dtagraítear sa dara fomhír an riail le haghaidh daoine a bhfuil ceart chun saorghluaiseachta acu faoi dhlí an Aontais.

Le linn dóibh seiceálacha íosta a dhéanamh ar dhaoine a bhfuil ceart chun saorghluaiseachta acu faoi dhlí an Aontais, féadfaidh gardaí teorainn, áfach, ar bhonn nach bonn córasach, bunachair sonraí naisiúnta agus Eorpacha a cheadú chun a áirithiú nach ionann na daoine sin agus bagairt dáiríre, láithreach agus tromchúiseach go leor ar an tslándáil inmheánach, ar an mbeartas poiblí ná ar chaidreamh idirnáisiúnta na mBallstát, nó nach bagairt ar an tsláinte phoiblí iad.

Ní dhéanfaidh iarmhairtí ceadaithe den sórt sin an ceart chun dul isteach ar chríoch an Bhallstáit lena mbaineann, ar ceart é chun saorghluaiseachta atá ag daoine faoi dhlí an Aontais a leagtar síos i dTreoir 2004/38/CE, a chur i mbaol.

▼B

3.  On entry and exit, third-country nationals shall be subject to thorough checks.

(a) thorough checks on entry shall comprise verification of the conditions governing entry laid down in Article 5(1) and, where applicable, of documents authorising residence and the pursuit of a professional activity. This shall include a detailed examination covering the following aspects:

(i) verification that the third-country national is in possession of a document which is valid for crossing the border and which has not expired, and that the document is accompanied, where applicable, by the requisite visa or residence permit;

(ii) thorough scrutiny of the travel document for signs of falsification or counterfeiting;

(iii) examination of the entry and exit stamps on the travel document of the third-country national concerned, in order to verify, by comparing the dates of entry and exit, that the person has not already exceeded the maximum duration of authorised stay in the territory of the Member States;

(iv) verification regarding the point of departure and the destination of the third-country national concerned and the purpose of the intended stay, checking if necessary, the corresponding supporting documents;

(v) verification that the third-country national concerned has sufficient means of subsistence for the duration and purpose of the intended stay, for his or her return to the country of origin or transit to a third country into which he or she is certain to be admitted, or that he or she is in a position to acquire such means lawfully;

(vi) verification that the third-country national concerned, his or her means of transport and the objects he or she is transporting are not likely to jeopardise the public policy, internal security, public health or international relations of any of the Member States. Such verification shall include direct consultation of the data and alerts on persons and, where necessary, objects included in the SIS and in national data files and the action to be performed, if any, as a result of an alert;

▼M2

(aa) má bhíonn víosa dá dtagraítear in Airteagal 5(1)(b) ina sheilbh ag náisiúnach de thríú tír, is éard a bheidh sna seiceálacha críochnúla ar iontráil go bhfíorófar céannacht shealbhóir an víosa agus barántúlacht an víosa, trí bhíthin an Chórais Faisnéise Víosaí (VIS) a cheadú i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 18 de Rialachán (CE) Uimh. 767/2008 ó Pharlaimint na hEorpa agus ón gComhairle an 9 Iúil 2008 maidir leis an gCóras Faisnéise Víosaí (VIS) agus maidir le sonraí ar víosaí gearrfhanachta a mhalartú idir Bhallstáit (Rialachán VIS) ( 21 );

(ab) de mhaolú air sin, más i gcás:

(i) inarb ann don oiread sin tráchta agus go mbeidh an t-am feithimh ag an láthair trasnaithe teorann iomarcach;

(ii) ina mbeidh na hacmhainní go léir ídithe a mhéid a bhaineann le foireann, saoráidí agus eagar; agus

(iii) ar bhonn measúnuithe, nach ann d'aon bhaol a bhaineann le slándáil inmheánach agus le hinimirce mhídhleathach,

féadfar an VIS a cheadú ag baint úsáide as uimhir an ghreamáin víosa i ngach cás agus, ar bhonn randamach, uimhir an ghreamáin víosa i dteannta le fíorú méarlorg.

I ngach cás ina mbeidh amhras faoi chéannacht shealbhóir an víosa agus/nó faoi bharántúlacht an víosa, áfach, déanfar an VIS a cheadú go córasach ag baint úsáide as uimhir an ghreamáin víosa i dteannta le fíorú méarlorg.

Ní fhéadfar an maolú seo a chur i bhfeidhm ach amháin ag an láthair trasnaithe teorann lena mbaineann fad a chomhlíonfar na coinníollacha thuasluaite;

(ac) is é an garda teorann a bheidh i gceannas ag an láthair trasnaithe teorann a dhéanfaidh an cinneadh an VIS a cheadú i gcomhréir le pointe (ab), nó is ar leibhéal níos airde a dhéanfar an cinneadh sin.

Tabharfaidh an Ballstát lena mbaineann fógra láithreach faoi aon chinneadh den sórt sin do na Ballstáit eile agus don Choimisiún;

(ad) tarchuirfidh gach Ballstát tuarascáil ar fheidhmiú phointe (ab) uair sa bhliain chuig Parlaimint na hEorpa agus chuig an gCoimisiún, agus beidh líon na náisiúnach de thríú tíortha a seiceáladh sa VIS trí úsáid a bhaint as uimhir an ghreamáin víosa amháin mar aon le fad an ama feithimh dá dtagraítear i bpointe (ab)(i) sa tuarascáil sin;

(ae) beidh feidhm ag pointe (ab) agus ag pointe (ac) ar feadh uastréimhse trí bliana, dar tosach trí bliana tar éis don VIS tosú i mbun oibríochta. Tarchuirfidh an Coimisiún, roimh dheireadh an dara bliain a gcuirfear pointe (ab) agus pointe (ac) i bhfeidhm, meastóireacht ar chur chun feidhme na bpointí sin chuig Parlaimint na hEorpa agus chuig an gComhairle. Ar bhonn na meastóireachta sin, féadfaidh Parlaimint na hEorpa nó an Chomhairle iarraidh ar an gCoimisiún leasuithe cuí ar an Rialachán seo a mholadh.

▼B

Article 8

Relaxation of border checks

1.  Border checks at external borders may be relaxed as a result of exceptional and unforeseen circumstances. Such exceptional and unforeseen circumstances shall be deemed to be those where unforeseeable events lead to traffic of such intensity that the waiting time at the border crossing point becomes excessive, and all resources have been exhausted as regards staff, facilities and organisation.

2.  Where border checks are relaxed in accordance with paragraph 1, border checks on entry movements shall in principle take priority over border checks on exit movements.

The decision to relax checks shall be taken by the border guard in command at the border crossing point.

Such relaxation of checks shall be temporary, adapted to the circumstances justifying it and introduced gradually.

3.  Even in the event that checks are relaxed, the border guard shall stamp the travel documents of third-country nationals both on entry and exit, in accordance with Article 10.

4.  Each Member State shall transmit once a year a report on the application of this Article to the European Parliament and the Commission.

Article 9

Separate lanes and information on signs

1.  Member States shall provide separate lanes, in particular at air border crossing points in order to carry out checks on persons, in accordance with Article 7. Such lanes shall be differentiated by means of the signs bearing the indications set out in the Annex III.

Member States may provide separate lanes at their sea and land border crossing points and at borders between Member States not applying Article 20 at their common borders. The signs bearing the indications set out in the Annex III shall be used if Member States provide separate lanes at those borders.

Member States shall ensure that such lanes are clearly signposted, including where the rules relating to the use of the different lanes are waived as provided for in paragraph 4, in order to ensure optimal flow levels of persons crossing the border.

▼M5

2.  

(a) Maidir le daoine a mbeidh ceart chun saorghluaiseachta acu faoi dhlí an Aontais, beidh siad i dteideal na lánaí a úsáid a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha atá i gCuid A d'Iarscríbhinn III (“AE, LEE, CH”). Féadfaidh siad freisin na lánaí a úsáid a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha atá i gCuid B1 (“níl víosa riachtanach”) agus i gcuid B2 (“gach cineál pas”) d'Iarscríbhinn III.

Maidir le náisiúnaigh tríú tír nach bhfuil faoi réir na hoibleagáide víosa a bheith ina seilbh acu agus teorainneacha seachtracha na mBallstát á dtrasnú acu i gcomhréir le Rialachán (CE) Uimh. 539/2001 agus náisiúnaigh tríú tíortha a mbeidh cead cónaithe bailí nó víosa fadfhanachta ina seilbh acu, féadfaidh siad na lánaí a úsáid a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha atá i gCuid B1 d'Iarscríbhinn III (“níl víosa riachtanach”) a ghabhann leis an Rialachán seo. Féadfaidh siad freisin feidhm a bhaint as na lánaí a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha (“gach cineál pas”) atá i gcuid B2 d'Iarscríbhinn III a ghabhann leis an Rialachán seo.

(b) Úsáidfidh gach duine eile na lánaí a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha (“gach cineál pas”) atá i gcuid B2 d'Iarscríbhinn III.

Féadfar an fhaisnéis atá ar na comharthaí dá dtagraítear i bpointe (a) agus pointe (b) a léiriú i gcibé teanga nó teangacha a mheasfaidh gach Ballstát a bheith oiriúnach.

Níl sé éigeantach lánaí ar leith a sholáthar a bheidh léirithe leis an gcomhartha atá i gcuid B1 d'Iarscríbhinn III (“níl víosa riachtanach”). Cinnfidh na Ballstáit an ndéanfaidh siad na lánaí sin a sholáthar agus cinnfidh siad na pointí trasnaithe teorann i gcomhréir le riachtanais phraiticiúla.

▼B

3.  At sea and land border crossing points, Member States may separate vehicle traffic into different lanes for light and heavy vehicles and buses by using signs as shown in Part C of Annex III.

Member States may vary the indications on those signs where appropriate in the light of local circumstances.

4.  In the event of a temporary imbalance in traffic flows at a particular border crossing point, the rules relating to the use of the different lanes may be waived by the competent authorities for the time necessary to eliminate such imbalance.

Article 10

▼M5

Doiciméid taistil a stampáil

▼B

1.  The travel documents of third-country nationals shall be systematically stamped on entry and exit. In particular an entry or exit stamp shall be affixed to:

(a) the documents, bearing a valid visa, enabling third-country nationals to cross the border;

(b) the documents enabling third-country nationals to whom a visa is issued at the border by a Member State to cross the border;

(c) the documents enabling third-country nationals not subject to a visa requirement to cross the border.

▼M5

2.  Maidir le doiciméid taistil náisiúnach tríú tíortha ar baill iad de theaghlach saoránaigh de chuid an Aontais a mbeidh feidhm ag Treoir 2004/38/CE maidir leis, ach nach dtíolacfaidh an cárta cónaithe dá bhforáiltear sa Treoir sin, déanfar na doiciméid sin a stampáil ar dhul isteach agus ar imeacht na náisiúnach sin.

Maidir le doiciméid taistil náisiúnach tríú tíortha ar baill iad de theaghlach de chuid náisiúnaigh tríú tír a mbeidh ceart chun saorghluaiseachta aige faoi dhlí an Aontais ach ar náisiúnaigh iad nach dtíolacfaidh an cárta cónaithe dá bhforáiltear i dTreoir 2004/38/CE, déanfar na doiciméid sin a stampáil ar dhul isteach agus ar imeacht na náisiúnach sin.

▼B

(g) do dhoiciméid taistil náisiúnach tríú tíortha a thíolacann cárta cónaithe dá bhforáiltear i dTreoir 2004/38/CE.

▼M5

Ar bhonn eisceachtúil agus ar iarraidh ó náisiúnach tríú tír, féadfar gan stampa um víosa dul isteach nó imeachta a chur má tá baol ann go gcruthóidh an stampa sin fadhbanna tromchúiseacha don duine sin. Sa chás sin, déanfar víosa dul isteach nó imeachta a thaifeadadh ar leathanach ar leith ar a sonrófar ainm agus uimhir phas an duine sin. Tabharfar an leathanach sin don náisiúnach ón tríú tír sin. Féadfaidh údaráis inniúla na mBallstát staidreamh a choimeád maidir le cásanna eisceachtúla den chineál sin agus féadfaidh siad an staidreamh sin a sholáthar don Choimisiún.

▼B

4.  The practical arrangements for stamping are set out in Annex IV.

5.  Whenever possible, third-country nationals shall be informed of the border guard's obligation to stamp their travel document on entry and exit, even where checks are relaxed in accordance with Article 8.

6.  The Commission shall report to the European Parliament and the Council by the end of 2008 on the operation of the provisions on stamping travel documents.

Article 11

Presumption as regards fulfilment of conditions of duration of stay

1.  If the travel document of a third-country national does not bear an entry stamp, the competent national authorities may presume that the holder does not fulfil, or no longer fulfils, the conditions of duration of stay applicable within the Member State concerned.

2.  The presumption referred to in paragraph 1 may be rebutted where the third-country national provides, by any means, credible evidence, such as transport tickets or proof of his or her presence outside the territory of the Member States, that he or she has respected the conditions relating to the duration of a short stay.

In such a case:

(a) where the third-country national is found on the territory of a Member State applying the Schengen acquis in full, the competent authorities shall indicate, in accordance with national law and practice, in his or her travel document the date on which, and the place where, he or she crossed the external border of one of the Member States applying the Schengen acquis in full;

(b) where the third-country national is found on the territory of a Member State in respect of which the decision contemplated in Article 3(2) of the 2003 Act of Accession has not been taken, the competent authorities shall indicate, in accordance with national law and practice, in his or her travel document the date on which, and the place where, he or she crossed the external border of such a Member State.

In addition to the indications referred to in points (a) and (b), a form as shown in Annex VIII may be given to the third-country national.

Member States shall inform each other and the Commission and the Council General Secretariat of their national practices with regard to the indications referred to in this Article.

▼M5

3.  I gcás nach mbréagnófar an toimhde dá dtagraítear i mír 1, féadfar an náisiúnach tríú tír a chur ar ais i gcomhréir le Treoir 2008/115/CE ó Pharlaimint na hEorpa agus ón gComhairle an 16 Nollaig 2008 maidir le caighdeáin choiteanna agus nósanna imeachta coiteanna sna Ballstáit i ndáil le náisiúnaigh tríú tíortha atá ag fanacht go mídhleathach a chur ar ais ( 22 ) agus i gcomhréir leis an dlí náisiúnta lena n–urramaítear an Treoir sin.

CHAPTER I

Abolition of border control at internal borders

Article 20

Crossing internal borders

Internal borders may be crossed at any point without a border check on persons, irrespective of their nationality, being carried out.

Article 21

Checks within the territory

The abolition of border control at internal borders shall not affect:

(a) the exercise of police powers by the competent authorities of the Member States under national law, insofar as the exercise of those powers does not have an effect equivalent to border checks; that shall also apply in border areas. Within the meaning of the first sentence, the exercise of police powers may not, in particular, be considered equivalent to the exercise of border checks when the police measures:

(i) do not have border control as an objective,

(ii) are based on general police information and experience regarding possible threats to public security and aim, in particular, to combat cross-border crime,

(iii) are devised and executed in a manner clearly distinct from systematic checks on persons at the external borders,

(iv) are carried out on the basis of spot-checks;

(b) security checks on persons carried out at ports and airports by the competent authorities under the law of each Member State, by port or airport officials or carriers, provided that such checks are also carried out on persons travelling within a Member State;

(c) the possibility for a Member State to provide by law for an obligation to hold or carry papers and documents;

▼M5

(d) an deis a d'fhéadfadh a bheith ag Ballstát foráil a dhéanamh le dlí lena gcuirfear oibleagáid ar náisiúnaigh tríú tíortha a láithreacht ar a chríoch a thuairisciú de bhun fhorálacha Airteagal 22 de Choinbhinsiún Schengen a chur chun feidhme.

1.  I gcás ina bhfuil baol tromchúiseach ann do bheartas poiblí nó do shlándáil inmheánach sa limistéar gan rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha i mBallstát, féadfaidh an Ballstát sin rialú teorann a athbhunú ar bhonn eisceachtúil ag na codanna uile nó ag codanna sonracha dá theorainneacha inmheánacha ar feadh tréimhse teoranta 30 lá ar a mhéid nó ar feadh ré intuartha an bhaoil thromchúisigh má mhaireann sé níos faide ná 30 lá. Ní rachaidh raon feidhme ré athbhunú sealadach an rialaithe teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha thar a bhfuil riachtanach chun freagairt a thabhairt ar an mbaol tromchúiseach.

2.  Ní athbhunófar rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha ach mar rogha dheiridh, agus i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 24, Airteagal 25 agus Airteagal 26. Cuirfear na critéir dá dtagraítear faoi seach in Airteagal 23a agus in Airteagal 26a san áireamh i ngach cás ina bhfuil sé beartaithe rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha a athbhunú de bhun Airteagal 24, Airteagal 25 nó Airteagal 26 faoi seach.

3.  Más ann fós, tar éis na tréimhse dá bhforáiltear i mír 1 den Airteagal seo, don bhaol tromchúiseach do bheartas poiblí nó do shlándáil inmheánach sa Bhallstát lena mbaineann, féadfaidh an Ballstát sin rialú teorann ag a theorainneacha inmheánacha a shíneadh, agus na critéir dá dtagraítear in Airteagal 23a á gcur san áireamh agus i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 24, ar bhonn na bhforas céanna dá dtagraítear i mír 1 den Airteagal seo agus, ag cur aon ghné nua san áireamh, ar feadh tréimhsí in-athnuaite 30 lá ar a mhéid.

4.  Ní rachaidh an tréimhse iomlán ina n-athbhunófar rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha lena n-áirítear aon síntí dá bhforáiltear i mír 3 den Airteagal seo thar sé mhí. I gcúinsí eisceachtúla amhail dá dtagraítear in Airteagal 26, féadfar an tréimhse iomlán seo a fhadú d'uasfhad dhá bhliain, i gcomhréir le mír 1 den Airteagal sin.

Agus measúnú den sórt sin á dhéanamh, cuirfidh an Ballstát an méid seo a leanas go háirithe san áireamh:

(a) an tionchar is dóigh a bheidh ag aon bhaol do bheartas poiblí nó do shlándáil inmheánach, lena n-áirítear i ndiaidh gníomhartha sceimhlitheoireachta nó i ndiaidh bagairtí sceimhlitheoireachta agus lena n-áirítear gníomhartha nó bagairtí a thagann ón gcoireacht eagraithe;

(b) an tionchar is dóigh a bheidh ag an mbeart sin ar shaorghluaiseacht daoine laistigh den limistéar gan rialú ag teorainneacha inmheánacha.

Airteagal 24

1.  I gcás ina bhfuil sé beartaithe ag Ballstát rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha a athbhunú faoi Airteagal 23(1), cuirfidh sé sin in iúl do na Ballstáit eile agus don Choimisiúin laistigh de cheithre seachtaine ar a dhéanaí roimh an dáta atá beartaithe don athbhunú, nó laistigh de thréimhse níos giorra i gcás ina bhfuil na cúinsí is cúis leis an ngá le rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha a athbhunú ar eolas níos lú ná ceithre seachtaine roimh an dáta atá beartaithe don athbhunú. Chuige sin, soláthróidh an Ballstát an fhaisnéis seo a leanas:

(a) na cúiseanna atá leis an athbhunú atá beartaithe, lena n-áirítear na sonraí ábhartha ar fad ina dtugtar tuairisc mhionsonraithe ar na gníomhartha is cúis le baol tromchúiseach dá bheartas poiblí nó dá shlándáil inmheánach;

Ní fhágfar le haicmiú den sórt sin nach gcuirfidh an Coimisiún an fhaisnéis ar fáil do Pharlaimint na hEorpa. Comhlíonfaidh tarchur agus láimhseáil na faisnéise agus na ndoiciméad a tarchuireadh chuig Parlaimint na hEorpa faoi mhír 1 leis na rialacha a bhaineann le faisnéis rúnaicmithe a chur ar aghaidh agus a láimhseáil, ar rialacha iad atá infheidhme idir Parlaimint na hEorpa agus an Coimisiún.

4.  Tar éis fógra a fháil ó Bhallstát faoi mhír 1 den Airteagal seo, agus ag féachaint don chomhairliúchán dá bhforáiltear i mír 5 den Airteagal seo, féadfaidh an Coimisiún nó aon Bhallstát eile tuairim a eisiúint gan dochar d'Airteagal 72 den Chonradh ar Fheidhmiú an Aontais Eorpaigh.

Más rud é, bunaithe ar an bhfaisnéis atá san fhógra nó ar aon fhaisnéis bhreise a bheidh faighte aige, go mbeidh imní ar an gCoimisiún maidir leis an riachtanas nó leis an gcomhréireacht a bhaineann le rialú teorann ag teorainneacha inmheánacha a athbhunú, nó má mheasann sé go mbeadh comhairliúchán maidir le gné éigin den fhógra iomchuí, eiseoidh sé tuairim chuige sin.

5.  Beidh an fhaisnéis dá bhforáiltear i mír 1, chomh maith le haon tuairim ón gCoimisiún nó ó Bhallstát faoi mhír 4, faoi réir comhairliúchán, lena n-áirítear, i gcás inarb iomchuí, comhchruinnithe, idir an Ballstát a bhfuil beartaithe aige rialú teorann a athbhunú ag teorainneacha inmheánacha, na Ballstáit eile, go háirithe iad siúd a mbeidh tionchar díreach ag na bearta sin orthu, agus an Coimisiún, d'fhonn comhar frithpháirteach a eagrú, i gcás inarb iomchuí, idir na Ballstáit agus d'fhonn comhréireacht na mbeart a scrúdú i ndáil leis na himeachtaí is cúis le rialú teorann a athbhunú agus leis an mbaol do bheartas poiblí nó do shlándáil inmheánach.

6.  Beidh an comhairliúchán dá dtagraítear i mír 5 ar bun ar a laghad deich lá roimh an dáta a leagtar amach chun rialú teorann a athbhunú.

ANNEX VI

Specific rules for the various types of border and the various means of transport used for crossing the Member States' external borders

1.   Land borders

1.1.   Checks on road traffic

1.1.1.

To ensure effective checks on persons, while ensuring the safety and smooth flow of road traffic, movements at border crossing points shall be regulated in an appropriate manner. Where necessary, Member States may conclude bilateral agreements to channel and block traffic. They shall inform the Commission thereof pursuant to Article 37.

1.1.2.

At land borders, Member States may, where they deem appropriate and if circumstances allow, install or operate separate lanes at certain border crossing points, in accordance with Article 9.

Separate lanes may be dispensed with at any time by the Member States' competent authorities, in exceptional circumstances and where traffic and infrastructure conditions so require.

Member States may cooperate with neighbouring countries with a view to the installation of separate lanes at external border crossing points.

1.1.3.

As a general rule, persons travelling in vehicles may remain inside them during checks. However, if circumstances so require, persons may be requested to alight from their vehicles. Thorough checks will be carried out, if local circumstances allow, in areas designated for that purpose. In the interests of staff safety, checks will be carried out, where possible, by two border guards.

1.1.4.

Pointí trasnaithe teorann roinnte

1.1.4.1. Féadfaidh Ballstáit comhaontuithe déthaobhacha a thabhairt i gcrích nó a choinneáil ar bun le tríú tíortha comharsanachta maidir le pointí trasnaithe teorann roinnte a bhunú ag a ndéanfaidh gardaí teorann an Bhallstáit agus gardaí teorann an tríú tír, i ndiaidh a chéile, seiceálacha ar imeacht agus seiceálacha ar dhul isteach i gcomhréir lena dhlí náisiúnta, ar chríoch an pháirtí eile. Féadfaidh pointí trasnaithe teorann roinnte a bheith suite ar chríoch an Bhallstáit nó ar chríoch tríú tír.

1.1.4.2. Pointí trasnaithe theorann roinnte suite ar chríoch Ballstáit: Beidh údarú do ghardaí teorann tríú tír a gcúraimí a fheidhmiú sa Bhallstát sna comhaontuithe déthaobhacha lena mbunaítear pointí trasnaithe theorann roinnte ar chríoch Ballstáit, agus na prionsabail seo a leanas á n-urramú:

(a) Cosaint idirnáisiúnta: Tabharfar rochtain ar nósanna imeachta ábhartha an Bhallstáit do náisiúnach tríú tír atá ag iarraidh cosaint idirnáisiúnta ar chríoch Ballstáit i gcomhréir le acquis an Aontais maidir le tearmann.

(b) Duine a ghabháil nó maoin a urghabháil: Má thagann gardaí tríú tír ar an eolas faoi fhíricí a bhfuil bonn cirt leo leis an duine a ghabháil nó an duine a chur faoi chosaint nó le maoin a urghabháil, cuirfidh siad údaráis an Bhallstáit ar an eolas faoi na fíricí sin agus áiritheoidh údaráis an Bhallstáit go ndéanfar gníomh leantach iomchuí i gcomhréir leis an dlí náisiúnta, le dlí an Aontais, agus leis an dlí idirnáisiúnta, go neamhspleách ar náisiúntacht an duine lena mbaineann.

(c) Daoine a bhfuil ceart chun saorghluaiseachta acu faoi dhlí an Aontais atá ag dul isteach i gcríoch an Aontais: Ní chuirfidh gardaí teorann tríú tír cosc ar dhaoine a bhfuil ceart chun saorghluaiseachta acu faoi dhlí an Aontais dul isteach i gcríoch an Aontais. Má tá cúiseanna ann a bhfuil bonn cirt leo le himeacht ón tríú tír lena mbaineann a dhiúltú, cuirfidh gardaí teorann tríú tír údaráis an Bhallstáit ar an eolas faoi na cúiseanna sin agus áiritheoidh údaráis an Bhallstáit go ndéanfar gníomh leantach i gcomhréir leis an dlí náisiúnta, le dlí an Aontais agus leis an dlí idirnáisiúnta.

1.1.4.3. Pointí trasnaithe theorann roinnte suite ar chríoch tríú tír: Beidh údarú do ghardaí teorann an Bhallstáit a gcúraimí a chomhlíonadh sa tríú tír sna comhaontuithe déthaobhacha lena mbunaítear pointí trasnaithe theorann roinnte ar chríoch tríú tír. Chun críche an Rialacháin seo, féachfar ar sheiceálacha a dhéanann gardaí teorann aon Bhallstáit ag pointe trasnaithe teorann roinnte ach atá suite ar chríoch tríú tír mar sheiceálacha a rinneadh ar chríoch an Bhallstáit a bheidh i gceist. Tabharfaidh gardaí teorann faoina gcuid cúraimí i gcomhréir le Rialachán (AE) Uimh. 562/2006 agus na prionsabail seo a leanas á n-urramú:

(a) Cosaint idirnáisiúnta: Tabharfar rochtain ar nósanna imeachta ábhartha Ballstáit i gcomhréir le acquis an Aontais maidir le tearmann do náisiúnach tríú tír atá imithe thar rialú imeachta arna fheidhmiú ag gardaí teorann tríú tír agus a iarann, ina dhiaidh sin, cosaint idirnáisiúnta ar ghardaí teorann an Bhallstáit atá i láthair sa tríú tír. Glacfaidh údaráis tríú tír le haistriú an duine lena mbaineann go críoch an Bhallstáit.

(b) Duine a ghabháil nó maoin a urghabháil: Má thagann gardaí teorann Ballstáit ar an eolas faoi fhíricí a bhfuil bonn cirt leo le duine a ghabháil nó a chur faoi chosaint nó le maoin a urghabháil, gníomhóidh siad i gcomhréir leis an dlí náisiúnta, le dlí an Aontais agus leis an dlí idirnáisiúnta. Glacfaidh údaráis tríú tír le haistriú an duine nó an ní lena mbaineann go críoch an Bhallstáit.

(c) Rochtain ar chórais TF: I gcomhréir le hAirteagal 7, beidh cead ag gardaí teorainn Ballstáit córais faisnéise phróiseála sonraí pearsanta a úsáid maidir le faisnéis. Beidh cead ag Ballstáit na bearta slándála teicniúla agus eagraíochtúla a cheanglaítear le dlí an Aontais a bhunú d'fhonn sonraí pearsanta a chosaint ar scrios nó ar chailliúint mhídhleathach nó ar chailliúint de thaisme, ar athrú, ar nochtadh nó ar rochtain neamhúdaraithe, lena n-áirítear rochtain ag údaráis tríú tír.

1.1.4.4. Sula dtabharfar i gcrích nó sula leasófar aon chomhaontú déthaobhach le tríú tír comharsanachta i ndáil le pointí trasnaithe teorann roinnte, rachaidh an Ballstát lena mbaineann i gcomhairle leis an gCoimisiún maidir le comhoiriúnacht an chomhaontaithe le dlí an Aontais. Cuirfear an Coimisiún ar an eolas maidir le haon chomhaontú déthaobhach atá ann cheana faoin 20 Eanáir 2014.

Más dóigh leis an gCoimisiún nach bhfuil an comhaontú comhoiriúnach le dlí an Aontais, cuirfidh sé an Ballstát lena mbaineann ar an eolas faoin méid sin. Glacfaidh an Ballstát na céimeanna uile is iomchuí chun an comhaontú a leasú laistigh de thréimhse réasúnta ionas go bhfaighfear réidh leis na neamh-chomhoiriúnachtaí sin.

1.2.   Checks on rail traffic

▼M5

1.2.1.

Déanfar seiceálacha ar phaisinéirí traenach agus ar fhoireann iarnróid araon ar thraenacha a thrasnaíonn teorainneacha seachtracha, lena náirítear traenacha earraí nó traenacha folmha. Féadfaidh Ballstáit comhaontuithe déthaobhacha nó comhaontuithe iltaobhacha a thabhairt i gcrích maidir leis an mbealach chun na seiceálacha sin a dhéanamh agus na prionsabail a leagtar amach i bpointe 1.1.4. á n-urramú. Déanfar na seiceálacha sin ar cheann de na bealaí seo a leanas:

 sa chéad stáisiún a dtiocfaidh an traein isteach ann nó an stáisiún deireanach a n-imeoidh sí uaidh ar chríoch Ballstáit,

 ar bord na traenach, le linn idirthurais idir an stáisiún deireanach a n-imeoidh sí uaidh i dtríú tír agus an chéad stáisiún a dtiocfaidh sí isteach ann ar chríoch Ballstáit, nó vice versa,

 sa stáisiún deireanach a n-imeoidh an traein uaidh nó sa chéad stáisiún a dtiocfaidh sí isteach ann ar chríoch tríú tír.

1.2.2.

Ina theannta sin, d'fhonn sreafaí tráchta iarnróid na dtraenacha paisinéirí ardluais a éascú, féadfaidh na Ballstáit a bheidh ar chúrsa taistil na dtraenacha sin ó thríú tíortha a chinneadh freisin, i gcomhaontú leis na tríú tíortha lena mbaineann agus na prionsabail a leagtar amach i bpointe 1.1.4. á n-urramú acu, seiceálacha ar dhul isteach a dhéanamh ar dhaoine i dtraenacha ó thríú tíortha ar cheann ar bith de na bealaí seo a leanas:

 sna stáisiúin i dtríú tír ag a dtiocfaidh daoine ar an traein,

 sna stáisiúin ag a dtuirlingeoidh daoine den traein, laistigh de chríoch na mBallstát,

 ar bord na traenach le linn idirthurais idir na stáisiúin ar chríoch tríú tír agus stáisiúin ar chríoch na mBallstát, ar choinníoll go bhfanfaidh na daoine ar bord na traenach.

▼B

1.2.3.

With respect to high-speed trains from third countries making several stops in the territory of the Member States, if the rail transport carrier is in a position to board passengers exclusively for the remaining part of the journey within the territory of the Member States, such passengers shall be subject to entry checks either on the train or at the station of destination except where checks have been carried out pursuant to points 1.2.1 or 1.2.2 first indent.

Persons who wish to take the train exclusively for the remaining part of the journey within the territory of the Member States shall receive clear notification prior to the train's departure that they will be subject to entry checks during the journey or at the station of destination.

1.2.4.

When travelling in the opposite direction, the persons on board the train shall be subject to exit checks under similar arrangements.

1.2.5.

The border guard may order the cavities of carriages to be inspected if necessary with the assistance of the train inspector, to ensure that persons or objects subject to border checks are not concealed in them.

1.2.6.

Where there are reasons to believe that persons who have been reported or are suspected of having committed an offence, or third-country nationals intending to enter illegally, are hiding on a train, the border guard, if he or she cannot act in accordance with his national provisions, shall notify the Member States towards or within whose territory the train is moving.

2.   Air borders

2.1.   Procedures for checks at international airports

2.1.1.

The competent authorities of the Member States shall ensure that the airport operator takes the requisite measures to physically separate the flows of passengers on internal flights from the flows of passengers on other flights. Appropriate infrastructures shall be set in place at all international airports to that end.

2.1.2.

The place where border checks are carried out shall be determined in accordance with the following procedure:

(a) passengers on a flight from a third country who board an internal flight shall be subject to an entry check at the airport of arrival of the flight from a third country. Passengers on an internal flight who board a flight for a third country (transfer passengers) shall be subject to an exit check at the airport of departure of the latter flight;

(b) for flights from or to third countries with no transfer passengers and flights making more than one stop-over at the airports of the Member States where there is no change of aircraft:

(i) passengers on flights from or to third countries where there is no prior or subsequent transfer within the territory of the Member States shall be subject to an entry check at the airport of entry and an exit check at the airport of exit;

(ii) passengers on flights from or to third countries with more than one stop-over on the territory of the Member States where there is no change of aircraft (transit passengers), and provided that passengers cannot board the aircraft for the leg situated within the territory of the Member States, shall be subject to an entry check at the airport of arrival and an exit check at the airport of departure;

(iii) where an airline may, for flights from third countries with more than one stop-over within the territory of the Member States, board passengers only for the remaining leg within that territory, passengers shall be subject to an exit check at the airport of departure and an entry check at the airport of arrival.

Checks on passengers who, during those stop-overs, are already on board the aircraft and have not boarded in the territory of the Member States shall be carried out in accordance with point (b)(ii). The reverse procedure shall apply to that category of flights where the country of destination is a third country.

2.1.3.

Border checks will normally not be carried out on the aircraft or at the gate, unless it is justified on the basis of an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration. In order to ensure that, at the airports designated as border crossing points, persons are checked in accordance with the rules set out in Articles 6 to 13, Member States shall ensure that the airport authorities take the requisite measures to channel passenger traffic to facilities reserved for checks.

Member States shall ensure that the airport operator takes the necessary measures to prevent unauthorised persons entering and leaving the reserved areas, for example the transit area. Checks will normally not be carried out in the transit area, unless it is justified on the basis of an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration; in particular checks in this area may be carried out on persons subject to an airport transit visa in order to check that they are in possession of such a visa.

2.1.4.

Where, in cases of force majeure or imminent danger or on the instructions of the authorities, an aircraft on a flight from a third country has to land on a landing ground which is not a border crossing point, that aircraft may continue its flight only after authorisation from the border guards and from customs. The same shall apply where an aircraft on a flight from a third country lands without permission. In any event, Articles 6 to 13 shall apply to checks on persons on those aircraft.

2.2.   Procedures for checks in aerodromes

2.2.1.

It shall be ensured that persons are also checked, in accordance with Articles 6 to 13, in airports which do not hold the status of international airport under the relevant national law (aerodromes) but through which the routing of flights from or to third countries is authorised.

2.2.2.

By way of derogation from point 2.1.1 it shall not be necessary to make appropriate arrangements in aerodromes to ensure that inflows of passengers from internal and other flights are physically separated, without prejudice to Regulation (EC) No 2320/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2002 establishing common rules in the field of civil aviation security ( 36 ). In addition, when the volume of traffic is low, the border guards need not be present at all times, provided that there is a guarantee that the necessary personnel can be deployed in good time.

2.2.3.

When the presence of the border guards is not assured at all times in the aerodrome, the manager of the aerodrome shall give adequate notice to the border guards about the arrival and the departure of aircrafts on flights from or to third countries.

2.3.   Checks on persons on private flights

2.3.1.

In the case of private flights from or to third countries the captain shall transmit to the border guards of the Member State of destination and, where appropriate, of the Member State of first entry, prior to take-off, a general declaration comprising inter alia a flight plan in accordance with Annex 2 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation and information concerning the passengers' identity.

2.3.2.

Where private flights coming from a third country and bound for a Member State make stop-overs in the territory of other Member States, the competent authorities of the Member State of entry shall carry out border checks and affix an entry stamp to the general declaration referred to in point 2.3.1.

2.3.3.

Where uncertainty exists whether a flight is exclusively coming from, or solely bound for, the territories of the Member States without stop-over on the territory of a third country, the competent authorities shall carry out checks on persons in airports and aerodromes in accordance with points 2.1 to 2.2.

2.3.4.

The arrangements for the entry and exit of gliders, micro-light aircraft, helicopters, small-scale aircraft capable of flying short distances only and airships shall be laid down by national law and, where applicable, by bilateral agreements.

3.1.    Nósanna imeachta seiceála ginearálta maidir le muirthrácht

3.1.1 Déanfar seiceálacha ar longa ag an gcalafort teacht isteach nó imeachta, nó i limistéar a chuirtear ar fáil go sonrach chun na críche sin agus a bheidh suite díreach taobh leis an árthach nó ar bord loinge sna huiscí teorann arna sainmhíniú ag Coinbhinsiún na Náisiún Aontaithe maidir le Dlí na Farraige. Féadfaidh na Ballstáit comhaontuithe a thabhairt i gcrích agus féadfar seiceálacha a dhéanamh freisin i gcomhréir leis na comhaontuithe sin le linn trasnuithe nó, ar theacht i dtír nó ar imeacht na loinge, i gcríoch tríú tír, agus na prionsabail a leagtar amach i bpointe 1.1.4. á n-urramú.

3.1.2. Déanfaidh an máistir, gníomhaire na loinge nó duine éigin eile arna údarú go cuí ag an máistir nó a fhíordheimhneofar ar bhealach a bheidh inghlactha don údarás poiblí lena mbaineann (dá ngairfear, sa dá chás, an “máistir” anseo feasta), liosta den chriú agus d'aon phaisinéirí a bheidh ann a tharraingt suas, ar liosta é ar a mbeidh an fhaisnéis a bheidh de dhíth i bhfoirm 5 (liosta an chriú) agus i bhfoirm 6 (liosta na bpaisinéirí) den Choinbhinsiún maidir le Muirthrácht Idirnáisiúnta a Éascú (Coinbhinsiún FAL) agus, i gcás inarb infheidhme, uimhir an víosa nó an cheada chónaithe:

 ar a dhéanaí ceithre uair an chloig is fiche sula sroichfear an calafort, nó

 ar a dhéanaí, nuair a fhágfaidh an long an calafort roimhe sin más turas níos lú ná fiche uair an chloig is fiche atá i gceist, nó

 murab eol an calafort cuarda nó má athraítear le linn an turais é, a luaithe is a bheidh an fhaisnéis sin ar fáil.

Cuirfidh an máistir an liosta/na liostaí in iúl do na gardaí teorann nó, má fhoráiltear dó sin sa dlí náisiúnta, d'údaráis ábhartha eile a chuirfidh an liosta/na liostaí ar aghaidh chuig na gardaí teorann gan mhoill.

3.1.3. Déanfaidh na gardaí teorann nó na húdaráis dá dtagraítear i bpointe 3.1.2. daingniúchán a chur ar ais chuig an máistir go bhfuarthas an liosta/na liostaí (cóip shínithe den liosta/de na liostaí nó dearbhú leictreonach go bhfuarthas na liostaí) agus soláthróidh sé é arna iarraidh sin dó agus an long sa chalafort.

3.1.4. Déanfaidh an máistir aon athrú ar chomhdhéanamh an chriú nó ar líon na bpaisinéirí a thuairisciúdon údarás inniúil gan mhoill.

Ina theannta sin, tabharfaidh an máistir fógra do na húdaráis inniúla gan mhoill, agus laistigh den teorainn ama a leagtar amach i bpointe 3.1.2., má tá folachánaithe ar bord. Fanann folachánaithe faoi fhreagracht an mháistir, áfach.

De mhaolú ar Airteagal 4 agus ar Airteagal 7, ní dhéanfar aon seiceálacha córasacha teorann ar dhaoine a bheidh ag fanacht ar bord. Mar sin féin, ní chuardóidh na gardaí teorann an long ná ní dhéanfaidh siad seiceálacha ar na daoine a bheidh ag fanacht ar bord ach amháin nuair a bheidh bonn cirt leis sin ar bhonn measúnaithe ar na rioscaí i dtaobh slándála inmheánaí agus inimirce mídhleathaí.

3.1.5. Tabharfaidh an máistir fógra don údaras inniúil faoi imeacht na loinge in am cuí agus i gcomhréir leis na rialacha a bheidh i bhfeidhm sa chalafort lena mbaineann.

3.2.   Specific check procedures for certain types of shipping

Cruise ships

▼M5

3.2.1.

Cuirfidh máistir na loinge cúrsála clár taistil agus clár na cúrsála chuig an údarás inniúil, a luaithe a shuífear iad agus tráth nach déanaí ná tráth laistigh den teorainn ama atá leagtha amach i bpointe 3.1.2.

▼B

3.2.2.

If the itinerary of a cruise ship comprises exclusively ports situated in the territory of the Member States, by way of derogation from Articles 4 and 7, no border checks shall be carried out and the cruise ship may dock at ports which are not border crossing points.

▼M5

Mar sin féin, ní dhéanfar seiceálacha ar chriú ná ar phaisinéirí na long sin ach amháin nuair a bheidh bonn cirt leis sin ar bhonn measúnaithe ar na rioscaí i dtaobh slándála inmheánaí agus inimirce mídhleathaí.

▼B

3.2.3.

If the itinerary of a cruise ship comprises both ports situated in the territory of the Member States and ports situated in third countries, by way of derogation from Article 7, border checks shall be carried out as follows:

(a) where the cruise ship comes from a port situated in a third country and calls for the first time at a port situated in the territory of a Member State, crew and passengers shall be subject to entry checks on the basis of the nominal lists of crew and passengers, as referred to in point 3.2.4.

Passengers going ashore shall be subject to entry checks in accordance with Article 7 unless an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration shows that there is no need to carry out such checks;

(b) where the cruise ship comes from a port situated in a third country and calls again at a port situated in the territory of a Member State, crew and passengers shall be subject to entry checks on the basis of the nominal lists of crew and passengers as referred to in point 3.2.4 to the extent that those lists have been modified since the cruise ship called at the previous port situated in the territory of a Member State.

Passengers going ashore shall be subject to entry checks in accordance with Article 7 unless an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration shows that there is no need to carry out such checks;

(c) where the cruise ship comes from a port situated in a Member State and calls at such a port, passengers going ashore shall be subject to entry checks in accordance with Article 7 if an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration so requires;

(d) where a cruise ship departs from a port situated in a Member State to a port in a third country, crew and passengers shall be subject to exit checks on the basis of the nominal lists of crew and passengers.

If an assessment of the risks related to internal security and illegal immigration so requires, passengers going on board shall be subject to exit checks in accordance with Article 7;

(e) where a cruise ship departs from a port situated in a Member State to such a port, no exit checks shall be carried out.

▼M5

Mar sin féin, ní dhéanfar seiceálacha ar chriú ná ar phaisinéirí na long sin ach amháin nuair a bheidh bonn cirt sin ar bhonn measúnaithe ar na rioscaí i dtaobh slándála inmheánaí agus inimirce mídhleathaí.

Pleasure boating

3.2.5.

By way of derogation from Articles 4 and 7, persons on board a pleasure boat coming from or departing to a port situated in a Member State shall not be subject to border checks and may enter a port which is not a border crossing point.

However, according to the assessment of the risks of illegal immigration, and in particular where the coastline of a third country is located in the immediate vicinity of the territory of the Member State concerned, checks on those persons and/or a physical search of the pleasure boat shall be carried out.

3.2.6.

By way of derogation from Article 4, a pleasure boat coming from a third country may, exceptionally, enter a port which is not a border crossing point. In that case, the persons on board shall notify the port authorities in order to be authorised to enter that port. The port authorities shall contact the authorities in the nearest port designated as a border crossing point in order to report the vessel's arrival. The declaration regarding passengers shall be made by lodging the list of persons on board with the port authorities. That list shall be made available to the border guards, at the latest upon arrival.

Likewise, if for reasons of force majeure the pleasure boat coming from a third country has to dock in a port other than a border crossing point, the port authorities shall contact the authorities in the nearest port designated as a border crossing point in order to report the vessel's presence.

3.2.7.

During those checks, a document containing all the technical characteristics of the vessel and the names of the persons on board shall be handed in. A copy of that document shall be given to the authorities in the ports of entry and departure. As long as the vessel remains in the territorial waters of one of the Member States, a copy of that document shall be included amongst the ship's papers.

Coastal fishing

3.2.8.

By way of derogation from Articles 4 and 7, the crews of coastal fisheries vessels which return every day or within 36 hours to the port of registration or to any other port situated in the territory of the Member States without docking in a port situated in the territory of a third country shall not be systematically checked. Nevertheless, the assessment of the risks of illegal immigration, in particular where the coastline of a third country is located in the immediate vicinity of the territory of the Member State concerned, shall be taken into account in order to determine the frequency of the checks to be carried out. According to those risks, checks on persons and/or a physical search of the vessel shall be carried out.

3.2.9.

The crews of coastal fisheries vessels not registered in a port situated in the territory of a Member State shall be checked in accordance with the provisions relating to seamen.

▼M5 —————

▼B

Ferry connections

3.2.10.

Checks shall be carried out on persons on board ferry connections with ports situated in third countries. The following rules shall apply:

(a) where possible, Member States shall provide separate lanes, in accordance with Article 9;

(b) checks on foot passengers shall be carried out individually;

(c) checks on vehicle occupants shall be carried out while they are at the vehicle;

(d) ferry passengers travelling by coach shall be considered as foot passengers. Those passengers shall alight from the coach for the checks;

(e) checks on drivers of heavy goods vehicles and any accompanying persons shall be conducted while the occupants are at the vehicle. Those checks will in principle be organised separately from checks on the other passengers;

(f) to ensure that checks are carried out quickly, there shall be an adequate number of gates;

(g) so as to detect illegal immigrants in particular, random searches shall be made on the means of transport used by the passengers, and where applicable on the loads and other goods stowed in the means of transport;

(h) ferry crew members shall be dealt with in the same way as commercial ship crew members;

▼M5

(i) pointe 3.1.2. (oibleagáid liostaí paisinéirí agus criú a chur isteach) – níl feidhm aige. Más gá liosta na ndaoine a bheidh ar bord a tharraingt suas i gcomhréir le Treoir 98/41/CE ón gComhairle an 18 Meitheamh 1998 maidir le clárú daoine atá ag taisteal ar bord long d'iompar paisinéirí a oibríonn trí dhul isteach i gcalafoirt Bhallstáit an Chomhphobail nó trí dhul amach astu ( 37 ), cuirfidh an máistir cóip den liosta sin ar aghaidh tráth nach déanaí ná tríocha nóiméad tar éis imeachta ó chalafort tríú tír chuig údarás inniúil an chalafoirt a dtiocfaidh an long i dtír ann i gcríoch na mBallstát.

3.2.11.

I gcás nach ndéanann bád farantóireachta a thiocfaidh ó thríú tír, a stopfaidh níos mó ná uair amháin laistigh de chríoch na mBallstát, paisinéirí a thabhairt ar bord ach amháin don chéim dheireanach den turas laistigh den chríoch sin, beidh na paisinéirí sin faoi réir seiceála ar imeacht ag an gcalafort a n-imeoidh an bád uaidh agus faoi réir seiceála ar dhul isteach ag an gcalafort a dtiocfaidh sé i dtír ann.

Maidir le daoine a bheidh ar bord an bháid farantóireachta cheana féin ag na stopanna sin agus nár tháinig ar bord i gcríoch na mBallstát, déanfar seiceálacha orthu ag an gcalafort ina dtiocfaidh an bád farantóireachta i dtír. Beidh an nós imeachta malartach i bhfeidhm nuair is tríú tír í an tír is ceann scríbe.

Naisc lasta idir Ballstáit

3.2.12. De mhaolú ar Airteagal 7, ní dhéanfar aon seiceálacha teorann ar naisc lasta idir an dá chalafort chéanna, nó níos mó ná dhá chalafort, atá suite ar chríoch na mBallstát, nach stopfaidh ag calafort ar bith lasmuigh de chríoch na mBallstát agus arb é iompar earraí a bheidh i gceist leo.

Mar sin féin, ní dhéanfar seiceálacha ar chriú ná ar phaisinéirí na long sin ach amháin nuair a bheidh bonn cirt leis sin ar bhonn measúnaithe ar na rioscaí i dtaobh slándála inmheánaí agus inimirce mídhleathaí.

3.   Seamen

▼M5

De mhaolú ar Airteagal 4 agus Airteagal 7, féadfaidh Ballstáit maraithe a mbeidh doiciméad aitheantais maraí acu, a eiseofar i gcomhréir le Coinbhinsiún na Maraithe de chuid na hEagraíochta Idirnáisiúnta Saothair maidir le Doiciméid Aitheantais, Uimh. 108 (1958) nó Uimh. 185 (2003), le Coinbhinsiún maidir le Muirthrácht Idirnáisiúnta a Éascú (Coinbhinsiún FAL), nó leis an dlí ábhartha náisiúnta, a údarú le dul isteach i gcríoch na mBallstát trí dhul i dtír chun fanacht i gceantar an chalafoirt chuarda nó i mbardais taobh leis, nó le himeacht ó chríoch na mBallstát trí dhul ar ais go dtí a gcuid long, gan iad féin a chur in iúl ag pointe trasnaithe teorann, ar choinníoll go mbeidh a n-ainmneacha ar liosta chriú na loinge a mbainfidh siad léi, liosta a bheidh curtha faoi bhráid na n-údarás inniúil cheana féin d'fhonn seiceálacha a dhéanamh.

Ar bhonn measúnaithe ar na rioscaí i dtaobh slándála inmheánaí agus inimirce mídhleathaí, áfach, beidh maraithe faoi réir seiceála ag na gardaí teorann, i gcomhréir le hAirteagal 7, sula rachaidh siad i dtír.

4.   Holders of diplomatic, official or service passports and members of international organisations

4.1.

In view of the special privileges or immunities they enjoy, the holders of diplomatic, official or service passports issued by third countries or their Governments recognised by the Member States, as well as the holders of documents issued by the international organisations listed in point 4.4 who are travelling in the course of their duties, may be given priority over other travellers at border crossing points even though they remain, where applicable, subject to the requirement for a visa.

By way of derogation from Article 5(1)(c), persons holding those documents shall not be required to prove that they have sufficient means of subsistence.

4.2.

If a person presenting himself or herself at the external border invokes privileges, immunities and exemptions, the border guard may require him or her to provide evidence of his or her status by producing the appropriate documents, in particular certificates issued by the accrediting State or a diplomatic passport or other means. If he or she has doubts, the border guard may, in case of urgent need, apply direct to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

4.3.

Accredited members of diplomatic missions and of consular representations and their families may enter the territory of the Member States on presentation of the card referred to in Article 19(2) and of the document authorising them to cross the border. Moreover, by way of derogation from Article 13 border guards may not refuse the holders of diplomatic, official or service passports entry to the territory of the Member States without first consulting the appropriate national authorities. This shall also apply where an alert has been entered in the SIS for such persons.

4.4.

The documents issued by the international organisations for the purposes specified in point 4.1 are in particular the following:

 United Nations laissez-passer issued to staff of the United Nations and subordinate agencies under the Convention on Privileges and Immunities of Specialised Agencies adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 21 November 1947 in New York,

5.   Cross-border workers

5.1.

The procedures for checking cross-border workers are governed by the general rules on border control, in particular Articles 7 and 13.

5.2.

By way of derogation from Article 7, cross-border workers who are well known to the border guards owing to their frequent crossing of the border at the same border crossing point and who have not been revealed by an initial check to be the subject of an alert in the SIS or in a national data file shall be subject only to random checks to ensure that they hold a valid document authorising them to cross the border and fulfil the necessary entry conditions. Thorough checks shall be carried out on those persons from time to time, without warning and at irregular intervals.

5.3.

The provisions of point 5.2 may be extended to other categories of regular cross-border commuters.

6.   Minors

Border guards shall pay particular attention to minors, whether travelling accompanied or unaccompanied. Minors crossing an external border shall be subject to the same checks on entry and exit as adults, as provided for in this Regulation.

6.2.

In the case of accompanied minors, the border guard shall check that the persons accompanying minors have parental care over them, especially where minors are accompanied by only one adult and there are serious grounds for suspecting that they may have been unlawfully removed from the custody of the person(s) legally exercising parental care over them. In the latter case, the border guard shall carry out a further investigation in order to detect any inconsistencies or contradictions in the information given.

6.3.

In the case of minors travelling unaccompanied, border guards shall ensure, by means of thorough checks on travel documents and supporting documents, that the minors do not leave the territory against the wishes of the person(s) having parental care over them.

▼M5

6.4.

Ainmneoidh na Ballstáit pointí teagmhála náisiúnta i ndáil le comhairliúchán maidir le mionaoisigh, agus cuirfidh siad an Coimisiún ar an eolas faoin méid sin. Cuirfidh an Coimisiún liosta de na pointí teagmhála náisiúnta sin ar fáil do na Ballstáit.

6.5.

I gcás ina bhfuil amhras ann maidir le haon cheann de na himthosca a leagtar amach i bpointí 6.1, 6.2 agus 6.3, bainfidh na gardaí teorann úsáid as liosta na bpointí teagmhála náisiúnta i ndáil le comhairliúchán maidir le mionaoisigh.

7.    Seirbhísí tarrthála, póilíní, briogáidí dóiteáin agus gardaí teorann

Leagfar síos sa dlí náisiúnta agus, i gcás inarb infheidhme, i gcomhaontuithe déthaobhacha, na socruithe maidir le dul isteach agus imeacht ball de sheirbhísí tarrthála, de na póilíní, briogáidí dóiteáin a bhíonn ag gníomhú i gcásanna éigeandála chomh maith le gardaí teorann a thrasnaíonn teorainn chun a gcúraimí proifisiúnta a fheidhmiú. Féadfaidh Ballstáit conarthaí déthaobhacha a thabhairt i gcrích le tríú tíortha maidir le dul isteach agus imeacht na gcatagóirí daoine sin. Féadfaidh na socruithe sin agus na comhaontuithe déthaobhacha sin foráil a dhéanamh do mhaoluithe ar Airteagal 4, Airteagal 5 agus Airteagal 7.

8.    Oibrithe amach ón gcósta.

De mhaolú ar Airteagal 4 agus Airteagal 7, ní dhéanfar seiceáil chórasach ar oibrithe amach ón gcósta faoi mar a shainmhínítear iad in Airteagal 2, pointe 18a, ar oibrithe iad a thiocfaidh ar ais go rialta ar muir nó trí aeriompar chuig críoch na mBallstát gan fanacht i gcríoch tríú tír.

Mar sin féin, cuirfear san áireamh measúnú ar na rioscaí i dtaobh inimirce mídhleathaí, go háirithe i gcás ina mbeidh imeallbhord tríú tír suite go díreach in aice le hionad amach ón gcósta, d'fhonn minicíocht na seiceálacha a bheidh le déanamh a chinneadh.
