ETIAS, a Security Union, a new pillar of the EU and a future United States of the World

In his 2016 State of the Union address, Juncker announced that the Commission would propose the creation of a European Travel Information and Authorisation System – an automated system that would conduct prior security and irregular migration checks, in full respect of fundamental rights and personal data protection, and issue authorisations to visa-exempt travellers for the purpose of travelling to the Schengen Area. Setting up this system was prioritised in the Bratislava Roadmap, which was agreed and signed by 27 EU leaders. On 16 November 2016 the Commission presented its legislative proposal.
The European Parliament, the rotating Council Presidency and the European Commission agreed to further prioritise this file in the Joint Declaration on the EU's legislative priorities for 2018-2019. The political agreement between the co-legislators was reached in December 2017 with the final confirmation and approval on all the technical aspects of the proposal given on April 25, 2018.
