New entry requirements for US Citizens?? Really??

Hey Everyone,

So, I was informed by my uncle who lives in Germany and frequently drives to Austria that there are new entry/exit requirements for US citizens when entering/exiting Austria as of November 1, 2013. I did some research and could find absolutely nothing on this. Has anyone heard anything different? I've never heard of this...

I don't know how that they would police that as there are no border controls between Germany and Austria, or indeed with any of its neighbours.

What is the nature of these new 'entry/exit requirements'?

Both Austria and Germany are signatories to the Schengen Agreement. This agreement dictates the conditions applying to any border crossings.

I suggest to ask your uncle what exactly he has heard.

Definitely not the case.
