What is the territorial scope of ETIAS?

The ETIAS’ legislative instrument will apply to Member States that are part of the Schengen area, including those that do not yet fully apply the Schengen acquis, i.e. Croatia, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Romania.

Which databases will ETIAS query?

When verifying and evaluating the information provided by visa exempt travellers, the system will automatically cross-reference the information contained in each application with:

–  Existing EU information systems:

– The Schengen Information System (SIS),

– The Visa Information System (VIS),o Europol data,

– The Eurodac database,

– The proposed future EU information systems:

– The input/output system (EES),

– Interpol databases:

– Interpol’s Stolen and Lost Travel Documents Database (SLTD),

– Interpol’s database on travel documents associated with notices (TDAWN),

– a special ETIAS surveillance list and specific risk indicators.

Pending the adoption of the Commission’s proposal for the exchange of information on criminal records of third-country nationals in the EU (ECRIS-TCN system),ETIAS should also be able to query the ECRIS-TCN system in the future.

For group carriers operating coach services, a transition period is provided for, during which they will not be required to check that passengers are in possession of a valid travel authorisation.

Although the travel authorization is valid for three years, it may be revoked or cancelled if the conditions for its issuance are no longer met.

Having a Schengen Visameans your home country is not eligible for the ETIAS program. Therefore you are not eligible to apply for an ETIAS until your country reaches a visa-free travel agreement with the European Union. On the meantime you can continue traveling to EU with a Schengen visa and will not need any other travel authorisation if you have your valid Visa.

Once the ETIAS system will come into effect, the british citizens will need to get this authorization to visit the Schengen area. The authorization had a validity period of 3 years and allows to visit Schengen states several times.

It is still a little early to say, but in 2010, when ESTA was set up by the United States, many people feared that travelers would boycott the destination, and this was not the case. The impact was minimal or non-existent, despite the fees.

No, the ETIAS is only accepted in countries part of the Schengen zone and part of the ETIAS program.
