ETIAS (European Travel Information and Authorization System) is the system that will require all the travellers to enter the Schengen area with the waiver. This system is for the citizens of the countries who don't need any documentation or legal requirement to enter any of the Schengen states. The implementation is due to the end of 2022

The visa waiver authorisation from ETIAS is very simple and easy to obtain all the applicants are required to provide the information and details in the online application form. The applicant must have to answer some security and health-related questions. Once the application form is filled, the travellers just need to pay the processing fee by debit or credit card, which will start the processing. After screening the information from the database, the authorisation approval will be sent within minutes. The electronic process will send the email of the authorisation. 

ETIAS is made to protect the citizens of the EU from external threats, and it will make sure that all the people with any flags or some links with the terrorist activities will be banned from entering any of the Schengen states.
