Welcome to Europe


Make sure you’re familiar with Spain’s Travel Requirements before you book your trip. Travelers must have EMA approved vaccine upon- arrival or a negative PCR Test.

France, along with other Schengen, EFTA, and European Microstates with Open Borders, will be subject to new entry requirements starting in 2024. ETIAS authorization will be required for nationals of the 58 Visa-Exempt Countries to enter the country.

Be aware that due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government of France could impose additional requirements and restrictions that are independent of ETIAS.

ETIAS Travel Requirements

To be eligible for ETIAS Authorisation, you must have a valid biometric passport. The UK government issued biometric passports in 2010. This means that you do not need to apply for another passport while you are in Spain.

All fees must be paid with a valid debit or credit card. ETIAS authorization is valid for 3 years. If your passport expires prior to your authorization’s expiration date you will need to apply for an ETIAS Visa Waiver.
