Welcome to Europe
ETIAS is a European Travel Information and Authorisation System, approved in 2018 and set to be launched from 2024. Its main goals are to enhance the safety of EU’s external borders and curb the security risks, related to illegal migration, criminal activities and terrorism.
According to the European Union, almost 20% of the World’s population from 59 visa-exempt countries, are eligible for ETIAS authorisation. The latter will give you the possibility to travel to EU, EFTA and European Microstates with Open Borders member states visa-free for three consecutive years.
After the process of cross-checking is completed successfully, you will be granted authorisation to travel within the EU (except Ireland), EFTA or European Microstates with Open Borders. The approval rate for ETIAS applications is 95%.The application process takes maximum 24 hours.
ETIAS applications online that get approval are valid for three years on one passport. ETIAS authorisations cannot be transferred between passports. You will also need to apply for a new authorization if you want to apply for a new passport.
ETIAS applications will be simple and straightforward. It will take less than 20 minutes for you to complete the questionnaire, and then upload the first page of the biometric passport.
The questionnaire will ask you questions about your travel history, criminal record, and personal details. Although most applications will be approved by the system, there are rare cases when you may need to provide additional documentation or participate in an interview.
