Non-EU citizens will pay to enter Schengen area under future ETIAS scheme


"The EU’s future passenger registration system could bring in up to €2 billion per year, which could be used to counter EU budget cuts.

British citizens may soon have to pay to visit the continent. As far-fetched as it may seem, this idea may become a reality when the Schengen area introduces a compulsory system of registration, based on the American ESTA.

The EU Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) would only apply to citizens of countries that do not need a visa to access the Schengen area. Members of the single market would be exempt from the measure thanks to the free movement of workers. But if the United Kingdom leaves the single market, things will not be simple."
