Check how long you are allowed to stay in European countries using the EES

You can automatically check the number of days that you are still allowed to stay on the territory of European countries using the EES through the EES online tool, which you can find:

  • on this website (This will be made available once EES becomes operational.)
  • when using the equipment installed at some external borders, enabling you to access information online (This will be made available once EES becomes operational.)

When consulting the EES online tool, you will receive information on whether your entry is allowed (‘OK’ or ‘not OK’), as well as information about the number of days that you are still allowed to stay on the territory of all or some of the European countries using the EES.

You can also ask the passport control officers at external borders for this information.

To find out how long you can stay in a European country that uses the EES, you must provide:

  • the name of the European country using EES you are currently visiting or wish to visit
  • your travel document (type and number and the three-letter code of the country that issued it, e.g. ‘BEL’ for Belgium)

Additionally, depending on your particular situation:

  • if you wish to travel to a European country using the EES at some point in the future and want to find out how long you would be allowed to stay, you must provide your intended date of arrival in that country; or
  • if you are already in a European country using the EES, you must provide your intended date of departure from that country; or
  • if you wish to travel to a European country using the EES at some point in the future, and want to find out how many days you have left to stay once your intended trip is over, you must provide both dates of arrival and departure from that country.
