These entry points will be managed by a Frontex operation. So, refugees will be excluded from the Schengen Visa agreement. [228] In practice, however, this is a loophole hard to check, and large-scale drug smuggling using private boats has been uncovered. [205] The disparities in checks on third-country nationals (who are subject to a more thorough check) are even greater. It’s just a matter of time. However, some third-country nationals are allowed to stay more than 90 days in the Schengen area without having to apply for a long-stay visa. San Marino and the Vatican City are both landlocked states surrounded by Italy and neither has an airport or seaport.
