For the second time, the EU has delayed the introduction of its new visa waiver scheme. ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorisation System) was supposed to be live in 2021, however it was put back to May 2023, then again to November 2023.

European Travel Information and Authorisation System - ETIAS

The European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) is an acronym for European Travel Information and Authorization System. It is a fully computerized system that admits and tracks travelers from countries where visas are not required to enter the Schengen Zone. It mimics the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) in the United States, which serves a similar purpose. The legal process for passing the ETIAS began in 2016, and the system is set to become live on January 1, 2022. However, it will only be fully effective and mandatory for travelers by the end of 2022.

For Brits vacationing this summer, the new UK travel system is causing confusion.

After several harsh lockdowns, more than four million Covid-19 cases, and more than 100,000 deaths, British visitors were relieved to be able to go abroad again on May 17th. However, what should have been a triumphant moment in their fight against Covid-19 has instead turned into a puzzle. That's because the UK's travel system has been chastised by the travel industry, which has attacked it for its complexity, among other issues.

What Travelers Should Know After The EU Agrees On A Travel Pass

The wheels of bureaucracy grind painfully slowly, and nowhere is this more evident than in the European Union. Last night, the European Parliament and EU member states achieved an agreement, bringing the EU one step closer to making Covid-19 travel cards a reality, months after the proposal was initially mooted. Here's whatever we know so far about the EU's travel pass, from when and where it will be used to what it will look like and what it could mean for the future of travel on the continent.

The EU will open to third-party countries like the United States.

To be declared safe, countries had to have fewer than 25 instances per 100,000 inhabitants under the former EU framework. However, EU ambassadors altered this ratio today, and countries must now have an incidence rate of less than 75 instances per 100,000 people to be included in the safe list. Both the U.S. and the U.K. are currently below this threshold, and hence would be included on a safe list based on this assessment, although Canada would not.

The United Kingdom reopens its borders and relaxes restrictions.

Since it was originally stated that foreign travel could resume on May 17th, the date has been eagerly anticipated in the United Kingdom. However, being allowed to travel again isn't the only change coming to the island; there will be a slew of other rule changes as well. With the day finally here, here's a look at what's going to change in each section of the UK, as well as the procedures travelers must follow to return to the nation.

Iceland, Israel, Portugal, the Faroe Islands, Australia, the Gibraltar and Falkland Islands, and others are among the destinations mentioned. Following a period of relative control over the pandemic, the United Kingdom is eager to resume tourism. The Department of Tourism in the United Kingdom has announced that the legal restrictions on international leisure travel would be eased from tomorrow.

The United Kingdom will also be analyzing its traffic signal system that includes countries listed on the red list on June 28.
