15 Countries with the Strictest Customs, Border Control and Airport Security in the World

This article will bring you to the list of countries with the strictest border control and airport security in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice if you want to travel to these places. A lot of countries invest in securing their borders because trespassers are more likely to try to enter the country by other means of transportation (rather than planes) or by foot.

When it comes to the most militarized border in the world, this title apparently goes to the border between North and South Korea, which makes sense if you think about it. USA-Mexico border is another border which has the best border security force in the world and with President Trump’s newest actions, it seems that this security can only get stronger. In addition, American airports, in general, might be the among the worst immigration airports in the world, especially nowadays.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the countries with the strictest border control and airport security in the world  from their list.

Scandinavian countries were recommended a couple of times as countries with strictest customs, border control and airport security in the world. Having traveled to Denmark and Sweden by plane, we have to say that the airport staff in both countries is very polite but you do have to take out all electronics (including camera lenses) and place them in separate containers to get them checked. Luggage is x-rayed in order to minimize chances of bringing anything illegal on board. Security rules are strict on all Swedish airports, regardless of size. When entering Russia, it is important to declare all your valuables in order to avoid dealing with unnecessary paperwork when you leave the country because you need to be careful what you bring out of the country. Their customs are pretty strict as well and might want to closely examine rules and regulations to be prepared. Border control is stricter if you decide to enter Russia by car. It is a well-known fact that North Korea and South Korea are not on a friendly basis which explains military fortification along the 150 miles-long border between these two countries. No need to say that border control is more than strict in one of the most authoritarian countries in the world. The process of entering the country is pretty much the same except the customs which are very strict especially in terms of electronics you want to bring in.  It is not uncommon that customs officers ask to inspect your phone, laptop content and photos on your camera.
