Technical Guide for Border Checks on Entry/Exit System related equipment

The European Union is moving forward with implementing various “smart borders” solutions that will make it easier for genuine travelers to cross Europe’s borders while protecting the security of hundreds of millions of Europeans. The Entry/Exit System entry into operation is expected in May 2022, driving the need for a change of border control processes and the deployment of new border control equipment at all BCPs (land, sea and air) throughout the Schengen Area and its external borders.
This technical guide addresses the demand from Member States for flexible and timely support as they prepare for the entry into operation of the Entry/Exit System.
