Changed immigration law - carrier liability and border control
The Ministry of Immigration, Integration and Housing has submitted an amendment for consultation regarding the Act amending the Aliens Act (Carrier liability in connection with temporary border control at internal Schengen borders). Danish Ports Association points out that an amendment to the Aliens Act in relation to carrier liability may have a negative impact on the customers of commercial ports. In relation to the bill, Danish Ports wants:
- clarify whether this is a regulatory competence/task,
- that it should be ensured that potential carrier liability is enforced based on the principle of fair competition,
- that there are clear impact assessments for the proposal,
- that the Danish National Police can continue to allow entry and exit (emergency visa) outside the approved border crossing points (ports),
- that seafarers can continue to use the right to obtain the necessary visa in a neighboring municipality.
