ETIAS On Track By End Of 2022
ETIAS On Track By End of 2022
The European Commission has announced that the rules that make the future European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) interoperable with the other EU information systems, have come into effect on 03 August 2021.
Announcing the milestone, the Commission asserted that this is an important step towards the launch of the ETIAS by the end of 2022.
The rules entering into force today detail how ETIAS will work with other EU information systems it will query when conducting checks, namely the Entry/Exit System, the Visa Information System, the Schengen Information System and a centralised system for the identification of Member States holding conviction information on non-EU nationals
— the EU Commission
The ETIAS is an electronic system and is part of a digital overhaul of security systems aimed at monitoring people entering and exiting Schengen countries
Not Due to Brexit
ETIAS was first raised in April 2016, two months before the UK’s EU referendum, and the British government at the time was one of the main backers of the system.
The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) is a document that all non-EU people with visa-free access to the EU, including UK and US citizens, will be required to have to visit the EU.
ETIAS is not a visa and is similar to the US system ESTA.
By the end of next year, travellers from visa-free countries will have to apply for an ETIAS online before travelling to any of the EU Member States.
The application will take a few minutes to be completed and will cost €7 in government fees.
“The system will cross-check travellers against EU information systems for internal security, borders, and migration before their trip, helping to identify ahead of time people who may pose a risk to security or health, as well as compliance with migration rules,” the Commission explains.
Fast Online Processing
The EU Commission notes that the implementation of the ETIAS does not mean that travellers from visa-free non-EU countries will need a visa to the EU, nor it removes the visa requirement for travellers under the visa regime.
The EU Commission has said the ETIAS process will be “simple, fast and affordable”.
Visa-exempt non-EU nationals will only need a few minutes to fill in an online application . which in a vast majority of cases (expected to be over 95%) will result in automatic approval
