The Schengen Border has a population of 400 million.

There are a total of 60 countries in the world that do not need a visa to enter the European countries that also includes countries belonging to the Schengen Border Area.

Since the whole area acts a single jurisdiction for travel purpose, the latest visa-waiver system will be applied to all the 26 countries.

The European Union is soon launching a new visa-waiver system called the ETIAS. ETIAS stands for European Travel Information and Authorization System.

It is not a visa but a new visa waiver system that is going to be in action from 1st January 2021. The proposal has already passed in the month of November in 2018 but they will be applied from the beginning of 2021.

ETIAS are only mandatory for the people who were earlier allowed to travel in these European Countries without having to acquire their visa.

These countries include New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States. But now Europe has a new travel authorization system for these citizens.

People who always needed a visa to visit these countries belonging to the Schengen Border area or Europe will remain unaffected with the launch of this new visa-waiver system. The travel procedure will be the same for them as earlier.
