EU : Smart borders - 2013


On 27 February 2013, the European Commission is due to present a 'smart border package' aimed at using new technology to speed-up, facilitate and reinforce border check procedures for foreigners travelling to the EU. The package consists of a Registered Traveller Programme (RTP), which will allow certain groups of frequent travellers from third countries (such as business travellers, workers on short term contracts, researchers and students, third country nationals with close family ties to EU citizens or living in regions bordering the EU) to enter the EU using simplified border checks,.. It will also include an Entry/Exit System (EES), which will record the time and place of entry and exit of third country nationals travelling to the EU. The system will calculate the length of the authorised short stay in an electronic way, replacing the current manual system. The aim of the 'smart border package' is to simplify life for frequent third country travellers at the EU's external borders, enhance EU security and contribute to better monitoring of border-crossings. This short stockshots illustrates this new system at the airport of Frankfurt, Germany.
