European Union entry-exit system expected in 2020

The European Council has adopted two regulations on the establishment of an entry-exit system that are expected to be operational by 2020. The regulations will allow for better management of internal and external borders.EU

The new system will apply to all non-EU nationals admitted for a short stay into the Schengen Area (maximum 90 days in a 180-day period). Besides registering the date and place of entry and exit, the system also registers names, type of travel, biometrics and records refusals of entry.
Quality and efficiency of controls as well as the detection of document and identify fraud will be improved by the new system.
Key considerations
Once the entry-exit system has been fully implemented, it should be much easier for HR as well as the foreign national to track any travel or business trips within the area. Until the system is in place, Crown World Mobility strongly recommends that you continue to track entries and exits manually in order to comply with the regulations. Not being compliant or being refused entry may cause issues for travelers’ future travel plans.
