Flights from / to Airfield Bremgarten EDTG or from / to Non-Schengen states require a written permission from German Border Police.

1. Crossing the Schengen internal borders

For the crossing of borders by air, land and sea within the states where the Schengen Implementing Convention is fully applied, currently – Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland -, border police checks on persons have been abolished. Within this community of states, internal borders may be crossed at any point without checks on persons. A special permit is therefore not required for such flights.

However, However, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 562/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 March 2006 establishing a Community Code on the rules governing the movement of persons across borders (Schengen Borders Code) and the national provisions on aliens and passports, there is still an obligation to possess and carry the required passport and aliens documents when crossing the border. In addition, measures (including spot checks) may be carried out on the basis of national powers.

In addition, the reintroduction of border controls at short notice is possible. In this case, the provisions of the Schengen Borders Code on “border control” will be reapplied.

2. Crossing the Schengen external borders

According to the Schengen Borders Code, the Schengen external borders may in principle only be crossed at the authorised border crossing points and during the fixed traffic hours. The special landing field Bremgarten is not approved as a border crossing point. Direct entries and exits from or to a so-called NON-Schengen state are therefore generally not permitted.

In cases where a special need actually exists and public interests do not conflict with this, the Federal Police Headquarters in Stuttgart may, in accordance with Section 61 (3) of the Federal Police Act, grant permission to persons or groups of persons (e.g. for the Bremgarten special landing site) to cross the border outside the authorised border crossing points, outside the set traffic hours or using other modes of transport than those approved. This border permit can be issued as a border permit on revocation or as a border permit for individual cases. Foreign and aviation law permits as well as any customs requirements (exemption from the customs airport requirement) are not affected by the issuance of a border permit.

The border permit can only be applied for in writing by fax or electronically (e-mail) and must be received by the Federal Police Headquarters Stuttgart at least 24 hours before the planned flight. Upon request of the applicant, the Federal Police Headquarters Stuttgart will provide an application form. Numerous details (personal data, flight data, justification) must be entered in the application. In addition, copies of all border crossing documents of the travelers must be enclosed.
