With the 2018 reform, the border procedure was established for applicants making an asylum application directly at the border or in transit areas after having been apprehended for having evaded or attempting to evade border controls. The border procedure also applies to asylum seekers who come from a designated Safe Country of Origin. In these cases, the entire procedure can be carried out directly at the border or in the transit area.[1] The border procedure has been applied since the issuance of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Decree of 5 August 2019, published on 7 September 2019, which identifies the border and transit areas covered by the accelerated procedure.
