18 Oct 2022 Feedback on the digitisation of travel documents
Digital travel documents have the potential to make travelling much easier and smoother for EU citizens. The European Commission currently envisages different regulatory options to develop digital travel documents (link to the consultation).
Eurosmart would favour a legislative act that lays down an obligation for Member States to offer their citizens the possibility to possess and use digital travel documents. The legislative act should allow all EU citizens to benefit from the usage of Digital Travel Credentials (DTC) when travelling in EU countries, as well as in all other countries supporting DTCs -in conformance with the upcoming ICAO specifications.
