Smart Borders Package means automated border crossing, EU-wide registration of border crossing data, and prior registration of visa-free passengers from third countries, i.e. outside the European Union.
Airlines, shipping companies, and carriers transporting groups by bus must ensure that the person has a visa or travel authorisation.
The changes do not apply to citizens of Finland or other Schengen countries.
