The EU Commission has once again postponed the introduction of an electronic entry system - similar to the US ESTA. The new launch date is May 2025. Citizens from over 60 visa-free countries will then have to apply for a travel authorization in the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) before traveling to any of the 30 European countries. Originally the ETIAS rollout was scheduled for as early as 2021.
