According to media reports, the launch of the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) is to be postponed until May 2025, with a possibility of further delays.
The reports state that the delay is due to the Entry/Exit System (EES) – a system of interconnected e-gates at Schengen external borders and considered a prerequisite for the commencement of ETIAS - not yet being ready. There has been no official statement from the EU authorities.
