EU officials say that the service will keep criminals out while allowing honest citizens to move about freely. The iris scans will be required only for non-EU citizens entering or leaving the EU. Europeans will use the biometric systems in current passports.
The main difference in the new system being proposed is that the pilot program in Frankfurt was intended to make travel easier for frequent fliers. According to officials the iris scanning process would allow border crossings in the desired 15 seconds range.
