What is EES?

EES at a glance
The Entry/Exit System (EES):
- Is a new travel registration for both visa-free and visa-required non-EU nationals travelling to 29 European countries;
- Is automated, occurring each time a traveller crosses an EU external border;
- Links to a traveller’s passport;
- Will work in conjunction with the new ETIAS; and
- Is due to arrive in 2024. (6th October reported but awaiting confirmation.)
What do I need to do?
In short, nothing. Because the EES is linked to your passport, it will take details – including your biometric data – upon arrival at passport control.
The difference from existing measures is that it will speed up the process of document checking, with all details being automated: manual stamping of passports will no longer be necessary. It also tightens security control, as it will be easier to identify travellers who shouldn’t be travelling.
