My understanding is that all travelers will need an ETIAS authorization but minors wonít need to pay the 7 euro fee.
Or seniors over 70

As much as I looked on pages like this( https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/eti...ies-need-etias ), do people over 70 need to apply for ETIAS and pay the 7 Euros fee, in order to travel into Europe starting in 2021? That page I linked to, was vague and didn't say any specifics whether all travelers(including those under 18) had to pay the 7 Euro fee to apply for ETIAS visa authorization, or not. I thought all travelers will have to do that(i.e. if you're from the US, Canada, etc) starting in 2021, but maybe I'm wrong. Just trying to understand correctly, here.

My understanding is that regardless of age you will need to apply for ETIAS, but people under 18 or over 70 will not have to pay the 7 Euro.

This is where it is going, possibly based on a 'social credit score'? Wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Added to the current biometric data embedded in many passports. Not much left of your life after that which can't be swiped at any border crossing.

On a positive note, the UK is not a participant in Schenghen, and is currently trying to leave the EU.

So you can visit London and the UK without forking out seven euros.

My ex-husband got a DUI about 15 years ago & yup he could not go to Canada ... (maybe he can now but Canada is really strict about letting ppl in if they have anything on their record)

Canada has access to US criminal records. You may still be able to go to Canada with the DUI or other crime, but will have to apply for a visa at a Canadian consulate or embassy.

Perhaps the wording of this press release will help (Bolding mine)

European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Security Union: A European Travel Information and Authorisation System - Questions & Answers

"All non-EU nationals who do not need a visa to travel to the Schengen area will have to apply for a travel authorisation through the ETIAS system prior to their trip"

"An electronic payment of a €7 fee for each application will be required for all applicants between the ages of 18 and 70."

So all non-EU nationals applies, only children and seniors do NOT pay the fee.

Also FYI,
"
In case of an inability to apply (due to age, literacy level, access to and competence on information technology etc.) applications may be submitted by a third person."

I imagine you will be asked for your etias permit number along with your passport information when you check in for a flight to Europe. No different from entering your known traveler number for TSA Pre.

Iím wondering about DUI convictions. Those already keep you out of Canada unless you jump through hoops. Another reason to never drink and drive.

7 Euros isnít gonna kill me. Way cheaper and less hassle than getting TSA Pre, Global Entry, or NEXUS. Iíve had visa applications that were a PITA and required a trip to the consulate. This is trivial.

If this is really about doing a security check, then why don't they accept Global Entry on a reciprocal basis? I think its more of a poke in the eye because they don't like our president.
