Germany to end border checks with neighbours from Monday night

Germany will end the border checks with its neighbours introduced to fight the coronavirus on Monday night, the Interior Ministry has said.

"The requirement of a valid reason for entry will... no longer apply" along Germany's land borders, a ministry spokesman said Friday.

The relaxed rules are to come into effect at midnight Monday June 15th.

The EU Commission last week urged a relaxation of travel restrictions within the bloc from June 15th, a move supported by Germany.

"Freedom of movement is being restored in the European Union," Germany's Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said before the EU's official announcement.
