In order to boost border security, the European Parliament established the European Travel Information and Authorisation System in 2016. Before entering the Schengen Area, ETIAS assesses visitors from visa-exempt nations.
It was initially anticipated that ETIAS will be operational by the end of 2021, with full implementation by 2022.
ETIAS, on the other hand, will now be available in late 2023. “According to current plans, ETIAS is set to become live in November 2023,” an EU insider recently revealed to EtiasVisa.com.
According to the European Commission’s official statement, the new deadline was agreed upon by Home Affairs Ministers in July 2022.
