What is a Border Checkpoint?
A border checkpoint is an area on the border of two countries where people pass back and forth between the neighboring nations. The nature of procedures at a border checkpoint differs, depending on the nations on either side.
Usually, border checkpoints are created to pass vehicle and foot traffic through a series of stations served by border officials. International airports also have a form of border checkpoint in their customs area.
Border checkpoints go both ways, with officials controlling entrances and exits. When a person enters a border checkpoint, he or she will be asked for identification, and about the nature of the visit. Upon the leaving a country, an official will review the traveler's passport and documents.
Border checkpoints are primarily designated to regulate the flow of people into and out of a country. They control illegal immigration, and they are the first point of call for people seeking refuge, as asylum-seekers are requested to declare their intent at the border.
Sometimes, passing through the border may be a formality, owing to treaty agreements between the bordering countries. Responsible controls are more common along borders with alien nations, or along borders often used by illegal immigrants.
For foreigners crossing borders, customs declarations forms should be filled out, and people should be ready for a brief interview, even if they are returning citizens.
