    Default Schengen forms

    From the RYA pages it seems as though in the Netherlands it may be unnecessary to be too concerned about Schengen forms, but that in Belgium it may need to be done, especially more recently.

    What do others do when entering these two countries - is it a matter of complying with any requests, or does one have to be rather more proactive? And what about leaving?

    When we went to boulogne they weren't interested, then when we entered Belgium (Nieuwpoort) they weren't interested because we'd come from France!

    In Ijmuiden Seaport Marina there is box with a supply of forms and a postal slot for depositing them.
    In the past the harbour master at Nieuwpoort Airforce Marina has duly stamped, photocopied and filed them. Perhaps he throws them away when you leave.

    We have done Schengen forms in Ijmuiden and Lauersoog picked up from the harbour office but generally not bothered unless we were passing these places. Blankenberg last year gave us a Schengen-like form but this was for the local immigration people, or maybe even for the British. It is always very easy-going and forms are available when required.
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere
