About the Project

The Entry-Exit System (EES) will…

The EES will provide…

  • Precise information in a rapid and automated way to border guards during border checks;
  • Information to border guards on refusals of entry of nonEU nationals and enable refusals of entry to be checked electronically in the EES;
  • Precise information to travellers on the maximum length of their authorised stay;
  • Precise information on who is overstaying their authorised stay;
  • Evidence-based support to visa policy.


As regards access for law enforcement purposes, the the EES will…

  • Support the identification of terrorists, criminals as well as of suspects and victims of crime;
  • Provide a record of travel histories of non-EU nationals including crime suspects, perpetrators or victims of crime. It would thus complement the information in the SIS.
