EU to collect biometrics of all visitors
« on: November 03, 2017, 07:25:02 pm »

Are they trying to stop all tourism?  Or doing this "just because they can"?  I remember reading, aeons ago, about the US military taking all the people out of the village of Faluja in Iraq and not letting them back in until their biometric measurements had been taken.  There was absolute outrage at this, but yet somehow now it "all good".  Why do you think that is?

The entry/exit system (EES) is part of the so-called Smart Borders package, and will consist of a central database storing the name, travel document, fingerprints, facial image, date and place of entry, exit and entry refusal of every third-country national even visa-exempt travellers coming to and from the EU Schengen area.

The data will be retained for at least three years or five years for over-stayers and will be accessible to border, visa and national enforcement authorities, as well as Europol, but not national asylum authorities.
