BELGRADE – The European Commission is going to introduce a 5-euro ($5.36) fee for tourists arriving in the Schengen Area from non-EU countries that have a visa-free regime with the European Union, a source told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

“The decision is expected to be issued by the European Commission on Wednesday,” the source said.

The fee will be a prat of the European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS), an automated system collecting data about visa-exempt travelers.

The system will gather the information on travelers prior to their trip and assess whether such travel poses a security or migration risk for the EU member states.
