(ANSA) - UDINE - Police in Italy and the Austrian Land of Carinthia have signed an agreement in Thorl-Maglern (Austria) for the informal readmission of people at the border, to cut down procedures between the two countries. The protocol was signed by the police commissioner of Udine, Claudio Cracovia, border police chief Irene Tittoni and the regional director of Carinthia's police, Michaela Kohlweiss.

Under the agreement, citizens from third countries who are found and detained after they illegally entered Italy can be sent back without further formalities to Austria and vice versa, provided the procedure starts within 24 hours and that the illegal migrants crossed the country towards which they are rejected.

An example is if they have a visa or residency permit which has not expired for longer than six months, or train or rail tickets or bills from the country where they are being readmitted. If the migrant is found during joint patrol operations the documents will not be necessary. The readmission without formality cannot happen if the person is an asylum seeker in a third country adhering to the Dublin convention.
