Number of Schengen countries with controls at internal borders

By the end of April 2020, 18 Schengen countries had officially notified the Commission on the reintroduction of controls at internal borders due to the pandemic (see Figure 1). In several Schengen countries, these restrictions supplemented or overlapped with pre-coronavirus border control measures (see Table 1). For example, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden, and Norway have maintained ‘temporary’ border control since 2015, due to concerns related to the situation at the EU’s external borders and/or security threats.
