The enforcement of the Entry/Exit System (EES) has been postponed till 2022.
Initially, the European Union Commission had decided upon 2020 as the year that the EES would be fully coming into force. 2020 was declared to be the enforcement year in October 2017 when the EES was adopted by the EU Commission.
The EES is a system that will help the EU achieve complete interoperability of all its information systems. Registering the entry and exit details as well as entry refusals of third-country nationals that cross the borders of the EU’s member states, the EES will be doing away with passport stamps altogether.
As all the data will be registered and stored in the EES, there will be no requirement for passport stamps.
The objective behind the EES is two-fold –
Developed by the eu-LISA, the EES will be applicable to all third-country nationals that travel to any of the countries in the Schengen Area for any purpose. Both the short-term and long-term stays will be recorded.
EES will include nationals of those countries that require a visa as well as those countries that fall under the visa-exempt program.
People that have been refused entry in the Schengen Area for a short-term visit on a previous occasion will also be subject to the EES.
The data to be recorded in the EES will comprise –
The above-mentioned details of each of the third-country nationals entering the Schengen Area shall be recorded in the EES.
Once the EES is enforced, all the authorities handling the processing of Schengen visa applications will be required to consult the EES.
