Commission: EU Co-legislators agree the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS)

The Members of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs in the European Parliament and the Member States’ Ambassadors in the Council approved the final political agreement on the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS), which the European Commission proposed in November 2016.
The system will enable Member States’ border management authorities to have more information on those wishing to travel to the EU, including on any irregular migration or security risks they might pose, and before their arrival at the Schengen External Border. For travellers, the process of obtaining travel authorisation will be effective and low-cost (€7), with most applicants receiving a response within minutes. The aforementioned agreement is another step towards strengthening our external borders and building an effective and sustainable Security Union, one in which its citizens are made safe but remains open to the World.

Next Steps:

The compromise text will now need to be formally ratified by the co-legislators. This will enable the system to be operational by 2021. With ETIAS in place, non-EU citizens travelling visa-free to the European Union will need to obtain authorisation before doing so.
