(24 May 2022) – Today, the European Commission is presenting the State of Schengen Report 2022 and sets new priorities and a ‘new governance model’.
This is the first time the Commission is presenting such report, following last year’s Schengen Strategy.
The report sets a list of priority actions for 2022-2023 that are to be addressed at both national and European level such as:
• implementing the new IT architecture and interoperability for border management,
• making full use of cross-border cooperation tools,
• ensuring systematic checks at the external borders of all travellers,
• ensuring that Frontex reaches the full potential of its mandate,
• lifting all long-lasting internal border controls, and
• adopting the revised Schengen Borders Code.
