The ETIAS travel authorization was created with the aim of increasing EU’s security and improving border control management. Non-EU citizens are pre-screened before coming to the Schengen Area through an online visa application to assess possible migration risks. An approved ETIAS visa will allow its holder to move freely within the Schengen Area without being subject to internal border controls. However, if deemed necessary, authorities of the Member States may conduct security checks.
