    WITH THE EMERGENCE OF THE NEW LIBERAL REGIME IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA THERE HAS COME AN EASING OF TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS - AND QUEUES OF CZECHS AT GOVERNMENT OFFICES FOR EXIT VISAS.

    THE MOST POPULAR AREA IS GERMANY, WHICH HAS A COMMON BORDER WITH CZECHOSLOVAKIA. TO ENSURE GETTING A VISA - FOR HOLIDAYS AND VISITS TO RELATIVES - PEOPLE OFTEN QUEUE OVERNIGHT. TO GET A VISA, EITHER TRANSIT OR VISIT, MEANS A WAIT IN A QUEUE AND THEN A FOUR TO SIX WEEK WAIT FOR IT TO BE APPROVED.

    THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF EAST GERMANS TRAVELLING TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA AND THEN CROSSING INTO WEST GERMANY. BUT NOW THE EAST GERMANS HAVE STOPPED MOST OF THEIR PEOPLE TRAVELLING TO CZECHOSLOVAKIA.
