[Question] European Entry/Exit System : what is the role of back-end systems and biometrics ?

In a series of 4 episodes of Questions to an expert, Jan Willem ter Hennepe, Business Development Manager Border Control at IDEMIA, explains us how the new European Entry/Exit System will affect the border clearance processes for all member states.
By 2022, this new system regulation will require the biometric identification of Third Country Nationals at external borders of the Schengen Area.
The face and fingerprints of each of them will be captured at every border crossing. Stakeholders expect longer waiting times due to limited space in airports, land and sea borders.
