The European Union is set to further delay the implementation of its ETIAS travel system for non-EU visitors into 2025, according to reports
ETIAS, also known as the European Travel Information and Authorisation System, has already suffered a series of delays due to technical problems and in February it was further postponed to 2024. Now specialist website SchengenVisaInfo.com is reporting that the launch of ETIAS has been pushed back to May 2025 due to continued delays with the introduction of the related Entry-Exit System (EES), which needs to be operational before ETIAS can be implemented.
Meanwhile, the UK is ploughing ahead with its own version of ETIAS, which is known as the Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) and will start being rolled out from October 2023 when it will initially apply to visitors from Qatar.
