The European Commission officially stated that European Travel Information and Authorization System, ETIAS, will be fully implemented by May 2023 instead of 2022.

This security system can pre-screen passengers from visa-exempt countries before they cross the Schengen Area. This border security system was approved by the European Parliament in 2016 to be implemented after five years in 2021. The full implementation of ETIAS has been delayed several times, including during the Covid pandemic.

The unofficial surmise is that ETIAS could b implemented for a shorter duration after its launch. If so, the registration would not be mandatory until the first six months of the launch. During this period, applying for ETIAS is only optional.

Officials stated that the ETIAS information regarding new travel authorization through leaflets will be provided at Schengen border checkpoints. These leaflets will also be available at the embassies and Consulates of all the Schengen Area countries, which will come under the mandatory ETIAS registration.

Foreign travelers who need to register for ETIAS can apply online. Eligible travelers must be foreign nationals visiting Europe for business, tourism, or transit. The maximum stay allowed under the ETIAS is 90 days per 180-day duration.

Here are the key points-

  • Non-EU nationals who do not need a visa to travel to Schengen Area will have to apply for a travel authorization through ETIAS before traveling.
  • Applicants must apply online for ETIAS registration or through a mobile app. The charges of $7 will be applicable per applicant.
  • This security system will be valid for multiple visits for three years.

As per the sources, the ETIAS grace period is yet to be confirmed.

The ETIAS is implemented to help Schengen Border countries effectively manage the external borders, improve internal security, streamline the process, and reduce the number of entry refusals at crossing checkpoints. This security system will add more formalities for non-EU nationals or visa-waived travelers while entering Europe’s Schengen Countries.
