Beginning in October, non-EU nationals entering the country will have to register their fingerprints and a photo at the border under the much-delayed Entry Exit System (EES).It was hoped that the EU-developed software would enable travelers to do this from a distance and avoid lengthy lines for travelers from the UK.

Nonetheless, Gwendoline Cazenave, the CEO of Eurostar, told the BBC that the train company was getting ready for station inspections because the app wouldn’t be ready in time.

Passport stamping will be replaced by EES. Its goal is to provide greater control over who enters and exits the EU.

However, there have been numerous alerts warning of the lengthy lines that will form at the Port of Dover, Eurostar, and Eurotunnel terminals due to the additional time required for passengers to finish their initial registration.

Checks are conducted at these locations by French border police as individuals leave the UK.
